Home Remodeling | 6 Landscaping Tips to Improve The Look of Your Home
Home Remodeling | If you want to improve the appearance of your home to prepare it for sale or simply to make it more attractive, here are six fast and simple tricks that can get the job done for less money than you might think:
6. Add a Splash of Color
The landscaping around your house should provide a fresh display of colors, textures and fragrances with every season. To keep your landscaping expenses affordable, however, choose one or two colors or themes and use variations on them all year round.
5. Make Sure Shrubs and Trees are to Scale
Trees or shrubs that are too small or too big can distract from the overall theme you are trying to create. Don’t allow bushes to block windows, entrances or important architectural features on your home. Choose attractive trees that don’t grow too large, such as flowering crab, cherry, or eastern rosebud.
4. Keep Your Lawn Properly Maintained
Have your lawn mowed every week and treat it with fertilizer to remove brown spots and dead grass. If you live in a climate where maintaining a healthy lawn is a challenge, consider adding rocks, boulders, and drought-tolerant plants to improve the look of your home.
3. Light It Up
You want your home to look just as appealing at night as it is during daylight hours. Add low-voltage lamps to highlight the branches of small trees, your front walk, and your porch. But don’t over do it so that your lawn could be mistaken for an airport runway.
2. Add a Water Effect
The sight and sound of running water will instantly make your home more appealing. Consider adding a fountain or other water effect to provide a pleasant gurgling sound.
1. Pay Attention to Details
Decorative architectural elements such as a freshly painted mailbox, attractive window boxes, or a low white picket fence will bring charm to your home. Avoid overdoing it with kitschy lawn ornaments or strange colors. – Build and Rehab
