Improving Your Home’s Curb Appeal
Spring is in the air! Now is a great time to start thinking about how you can invigorate your yard and home’s exterior. With some time and planning, you can improve your home’s curb appeal to create an eye-catching and welcoming front yard.
Plan Your Work
Take a look at the exterior of your home to help you determine what you would like to do to enhance your curb appeal. Focus on the following areas:
- Plants: Are all your plants healthy and thriving? Do any plants need to be replaced or added? Do your trees or shrubs need to be trimmed?
- Paint: Is it time to paint your home? Does the trim or door need a touchup?
- Lighting: Is it time to replace, perform maintenance on, or add exterior lighting?
- Hardscape: Do you need to power wash your driveway, walkways, or patio? Do any of these areas need repair, replacement, or updating?
After you determine the tasks you would like to focus on, make a list of the scope of work for each project. For example, do you need to hire a home professional to complete the project, or is it something you can do on your own?
Obtain Necessary Approvals
Next, check with your homeowner’s association for guidelines on your projects as well as their approval process. Your homeowner’s association may even provide suggestions or options for the projects you would like to complete. The O’Gorman Team can also assist you in finding a trusted and quality professional to assist you with completing your home projects.
Your Yard Transformed
Whether you refresh plants or add solar lights to your walkway, the changes you choose to make to your front lawn and exterior can greatly enhance your home’s curb appeal. Your time and effort will both be well spent when you see how attractive and welcoming your yard and home’s exterior look.
