SPRING CLEANING FOR CURB APPEAL
Homeowners have to do Spring cleaning every year, this should not be limited to inside the home but also cleaning your yard for curb appeal. One very important step that should never be overlooked is cleaning the gutters. You can begin with reaching in and physically removing as much of the debris as possible. Any remaining debris can be flushed out with water. Once the gutters are cleaned then it is time to move on to the rest of your yard.
ADDING FOCAL POINTS & ORGANIZATION
Any homeowner with a small yard knows that by adding a focal point or two can lead to a sense of organization and appeal. By dividing off areas and adding paths to focal points will bring not only curb appeal to your yard but guide your visitors to the areas of your yard that you most want to highlight. There are many different items you can use to create focal points. Here are a few examples:
- Fire pit
- Bird bath
- Gazing globe
ADDING HEIGHT TO YOUR YARD
There are a few tricks of the trade that can help bring that special curb appeal to your home while you are tackling your Spring cleaning. One way is to add tall trees or shrubs to your yard. Mix them in with other plants and trees of different heights to add texture and help the yard feel larger and more spacious.
ADDING BOLD COLOR
Add color to your yard! Your yard will stand out more if you add bold colors to your landscape. Adding color to your yard does not mean just adding colorful flowers or plants. It can also be bold-colored patio furniture or lights that bring vibrancy to your yard.
CURB APPEAL WITHOUT THE CLUTTER
If you have a small yard one very important thing you need to make sure you do is to keep your home’s curb appeal beautiful without it appearing too cluttered. It is important that you do not overwhelm your yard by adding too many decorations that take away from the main focal points. Having too much clutter in your yard not only makes your yard feel smaller but also makes it seem less organized. It is important to find that perfect balance that will add to the curb appeal you are seeking.
