When you wake up and get ready for a day you take time to have a shower, do your hair, get dressed in clean and presentable clothing and more. This is all for the outward appearance of yourself when you come across anyone else that day. When it comes to your house the exterior is what is referred to as curb appeal. If someone says they don’t care about their curb appeal then they haven’t really thought about it. The curb appeal of your home is not only important for you to enjoy the look of your home but also will help to increase the value of the home as well. This is also a great way to increase the look of your entire neighborhood when people care about their lawn and front of house.
Matt Myette Landscaping Lists Ways to Increase Your Home’s Curb Appeal
Only Use Healthy Plants: If you have a great looking lawn and garden but there is that one bush that is dead or dying it can really kill the vibe of the entire look. If you have a plant that is struggling and starting to wilt it can also take away from the look of the yard as well. You want to be sure that you take time to treat these plants and either increase the health of them all together or remove them.
Layered Landscaping Design Ideas: You can create a beautiful look from the front of the home using plants, lawn and other landscape. When you layout the look of the lawn you want to be sure that you stay organized with what plants should go where. One way to create a look that is enticing to the eye is to use layering. Layering has to do with shrubs and other plants that have height to them. You want to have flowering plants that are lower to the ground in front while the plants that have height pushed towards the back. The layering of the plants that you are using also show off some texture to the area that keeps it interesting.
Keep Plants & Yard Well Maintained: When you have a fully landscaped front lawn you have to know that there is continued work that has to be done. There are some plants that are seasonal and will not last the whole year. They need to be replaced once they have lived their life. You also cannot let the shape and size of the shrubs and plants overrun the area. The curb appeal is to make home more inviting and with large overgrown shrubs it can look ominous. You want to be sure that you have some maintenance agreement with a landscaper that will come on a regular basis to keep the landscaping in good condition.
