First impressions are everything. Shouldn’t they be a priority when talking about your home? The curb appeal of your home is important whether you are selling your home or not. This is the first impression guests and visitors will get as they pull up to your home. Curb appeal doesn’t only increase your home value, but will brighten your neighborhood and make guests feel welcome. Matt Myette Landscaping is here to share some tips that are simple and will increase your home’s curb appeal.
Exterior Entryway & Front Door Entrance Ideas
Look at your front door, does it say “welcome”? You want your front door and entryway to have a bright feel. Painting your front door is a simple way to polish your front door as well as tell guests they are welcome when they walk up to the house.
Update Your House Numbers
When guests are trying to find your house, having large, shiny numbers can be helpful as well as boost your home’s curb appeal. If your house numbers are looking old and worn, this is a simple and cost efficient way to give it a little pick-me-up.
Hardscape Construction in Front Yard
Hardscape is important in creating curb appeal. You want the walkway to your home to be inviting and prominent. This can simply be done with the use of brick or stone. This will clearly mark the path to the front door so guests aren’t guessing which way to go.
Outdoor Landscape Ideas for Front of House
One way to compliment your landscaping as well as add curb appeal is to light it up at night. This can be done with solar lighting that is easy to install and fairly inexpensive. Show off your landscaping whether the sun is out or night has fallen.
Plant Selection Guide & Flower Bed Designs
During the warmest months of the year, adding color to your landscaping can do a lot for your home’s curb appeal. Choose plants that have blooms on them throughout the entire season so there is always a splash of color in your yard. This can be done using window boxes, potted plants on your porch or perennials planted permanently in your landscaping. When there are only a couple different types of plants in your landscaping, it can be boring. When making plans for your landscape, choose a variety of plants that will give it dimension as well as some trees to catch everyone’s eye as they pass by.
Keep Your Lawn Manicured
It doesn’t matter how outstanding your house is, if your lawn isn’t kept neat and trimmed. Without a neatly kept lawn, your landscaping is lost in the chaos. You should have your lawn cut and edged once a week to maintain it.
