Whether you are trying to increase the value of your home or list your home for sale, curb appeal has a big impact on potential buyers. The first thing anyone sees when they arrive at your house is the physical structure and beautifying it can go a long way. Here are three ways you can increase the curb appeal from the front to the backyard:
- Landscaping. One of the easiest ways to improve your home on the outside is manicured landscaping. Since the seasons have changed and we are embracing the fall weather, consider placing some mums around your front door or on your porch. Mums are easy plants to take care of and come in a plethora of colors that are vibrant and really bring in the autumn well. Additionally, you can still mow your grass a few times before the first frost, so be sure to keep it trimmed and neat. Along with other yard work, trim shrubs to give them a clean cut look.
- Walkway. If your home doesn’t have a walkway leading to the front door, invest in pouring a concrete path to your home. You get the flexibility of designing its flow and to further benefit your design, consult with a Seament specialist like Charles Bouri who can give you some tips. After you have completed the project, you can strategically place solar powered garden lights along the walkway to give it a nice lighting effect at night.
- Patio. Don’t forget the backyard of your house because it may be just as important as the front! If you have a back door leading out to the backyard space of your home, you can add a concrete slab to create extra living space. Jazz it up with lawn chairs and some weather-resistant end tables to create a comfortable environment to enjoy outside. If you want to take it a step further, install a fire pit that you and your friends and family can utilize on cool, autumn nights.
Taking on these three simple tips could significantly add value to your home and give you more enjoyment overall!
