Budget Friendly Tips to Improve Your Home’s Curb Appeal

curb appeal

First impressions matter, especially for homebuyers. If you are hoping to sell your home in the future, it is important to establish great curb appeal. Continue reading for four ways you can improve the curb appeal of your home…on a budget!


Touch up the mulch. Nothing spruces up your home’s exterior like a new layer of mulch in the garden beds. The color will enhance the contrast of the surrounding plants and make everything pop. Mulch is relatively cheap and easy to apply!





Add some color. Seasonal color enhances the landscape as well. Plant some annuals, which are relatively inexpensive flowers. You can go for a blend of several colors or a more monochromatic scheme, whatever goes well with the look of your home.





Shape up unsightly trees and shrubs. Don’t lose your house behind leaves! Regardless of the season, it is a good idea to maintain the pruning of your plants and shrubs, because nothing hurts your curb appeal quite like a bunch of dead leaves. The idea is to show how well your house and garden have been preserved.





Make your walkway a grand entrance. The moment buyers walk up the path to your front door can make or break the sale of your home. Be sure to tidy up the edges of the walkway, tackle any weed growth, and keep your front steps nicely swept. You can also enhance your home’s entrance with an outdoor floral arrangement, a cheerful doormat, and updated exterior light fixtures!
