Start with the Front Yard
Do you have enough flowers in your garden? Are your hedges trimmed well? Do your trees have greenery hanging from their branches? If you answered no, consider investing in some quality flower pots and putting in fresh flowers. From roses to lilies, you can’t go wrong with fresh flowers that will boost your home’s curb appeal. Take advantage of free plants. The biggest culprit for slowing down your home’s curb appeal are weeds. Why not make it a family activity? Whether it’s an afternoon at the park, lunch at the botanical garden, or a trip to the corner store for a bag of violets, don’t be afraid to get your hands dirty and get some plants. The greenery of your property will perk up instantly with a few well-placed succulents.
Add Curb Appeal to Your Entryway
A bright, welcoming entryway is one of the first things people notice about your home and is typically one of the first areas of your home to be decorated. You can add some welcome color with decorations, or you can also add some fresh greenery to your entryway to make it feel like home.
Add a Pop of Color to Your Front Porch
Anyone who visits your home will notice the bright and welcoming paint job. But make sure you use a neutral palette like black or white to avoid jarring against your wood paneling and give your entrance an aesthetic, rich feel. If your door is dull or dreary, replace it with a vibrant red or orange door knocker. Add an arbor. If your front yard doesn’t have enough space for a traditional tree, consider planting one yourself. They not only provide shade but will also attract wildlife to your yard. Not a fan of a tree in the middle of your yard? Opt for a mix of trees and shrubs. Create an outdoor living space. As well as a realization of your desire for more outdoor living space, it will allow you to integrate your outdoor area into the rest of your home.
Add Greenery to Your Mailbox
Adding a large flower pot to your mailbox is a low-cost way to add some green to your front lawn, especially if you don’t have a green thumb. Make sure your plant is a variety that can handle a bright, sunny day. Not all plants will flourish in cold, wintry weather. Adding unique color to your lawn can turn your otherwise boring front lawn into something that looks modern and interesting. Make sure to pick a color that will blend in well with your landscape, or at least give it a bright pop of color. A great color for an entryway is bright pink since it will help you stand out from your neighbors.
Before you know it, the real estate market will take off, and you’ll be able to sell your home for a significant profit. Don’t forget to do a few minor repairs and make sure the overall curb appeal of your home is appealing as well.
