With summer officially just a few weeks away, it’s time to prep your curb appeal to help your home be the star of the block. Here are five things you can do to improve your curb appeal and make your home pop throughout this summer.
Create an Impressive Walkway
Use pavers, flagstone, or decorative concrete to create an inviting path to your home — line the way with bright colors to add an extra pop of color.
2. Add Lighting to Keep the Night Appeal
Your curb appeal can be a 24-hour affair. Adding accent lighting to your pathway, a tree, or to highlight features on your home can provide an effect to passers-by in the evening. It will illuminate your home and give a little added security.
3. Add a Focal Point
Landscape features such as a boulder, a shrub or tree can help create a focal point for your front yard. You can design your entire landscape around your new focal point.
4. Install a Flower Garden
The small distance between your home and the basement can be an eyesore. If you want to add more than just evergreens or shrubs, try creating a beautiful flower bed with mulch. The colors will help accent your home and create an elegant, inviting curb appeal for your visitors.
5. Keep it Green
Perhaps the most important tip for winning curb appeal is keeping your grass green, cut, and weed free. Mow your lawn regularly, water appropriately and aerate your yard to keep the soils loose. Fertilizer will keep the weeds away and your grass luscious and green.
