Looking for ways to improve your home’s curb appeal without dipping into your savings account? A recent study found that homes with outstanding landscapes will yield a 5% higher selling price when compared to homes with average landscapes and 7% more than homes with sub-par landscapes.
Don’t overlook the importance of maintaining clean, well-defined edges around your home’s exterior and driveway. Allowing an overgrowth of grass and weeds here will take away from your home’s curb appeal, negating all of your hard work.
The good news is that edging is a relatively easy and straightforward process that anyone can do. All it takes is a weed eater and a little bit of time.
#2) Create A Welcome Entrance
An entryway can make a world of difference in your home’s curb appeal. As the name suggests, this is typically the area around your front door, making it a key role in your home’s appearance.
You can create a stunning yet inexpensive welcome entrance by adding a couple potted plants placed to the side of an outdoor rug.
Just remember to choose plants that are suitable to the region in which you live; otherwise, they may die when a cold snap appears, forcing you to spend more money on new plants.
#3) Expand Plant Beds
Consider expanding your existing plant beds so they are larger and more visible. Now that spring is here, homeowners have more choices than ever when it comes to growing beautiful, vibrant plants in their garden or yard.
You can even separate short plants with taller shrubs to create a contrasting appearance that catches the eye.
#4) Install a New Mailbox
When was the last time you replaced your mailbox? The truth is that most homeowners never replace their mailbox, using the same old one year after year.
Over time, however, mailboxes tend to develop a worn, discolored appearance that does the home no justice. For less than a hundred a bucks, however, you can replace it with a brand new mailbox.
#5) Pressure Wash Your Home’s Exterior
Last but not least, consider pressure washing your home’s exterior to eliminate dirt and mold while revitalizing its original appearance.
If you don’t own a pressure washer, you can rent one from most major home improvement stores for about $50 bucks per day. That’s a small price to pay for the positive effect it will have on your home’s appearance.
