Curb appeal doesn't end when the sun goes down. Highlight pathways and trees with landscape lighting. Lighting improves safety and can yield dramatic effects for your homes nighttime appeal.
Add Container Plants
Turn your home's entry into an inviting focal point by adding a few well-chosen and nicely arranged plants on the front porch. Vary the plant and container sizes, and arrange them on multiple levels.
Replace Old Walkways
If a concrete walkway is in bad shape or is just dull as dirt, replace it with a fresh path made entirely of stone or brick. Visitors access this front door via square pads of bluestone trimmed with brick. Narrow strips of turfgrass separate the squares, which step up slightly with the change in grade from the street to the house.
Make the Porch Inviting
If you're lucky enough to have a sizable front porch, use it to create a simple but inviting outdoor room. Add a comfortable bench or chairs to create a conversation nook. Keep the porch clutter free and open for cozy gatherings.
Accent With Color!
When repainting, take the opportunity to choose fresh colors or add an accent color to your exterior color scheme. Paint test patches before committing to a color scheme; some colors look great on a sample card but are too intense on a house.
