Working on your home's curb appeal will help make a lasting impression and will make your home feel welcoming to all who visit.

Whether you've just moved into a new home or you are in the process of selling your home, it's important to maintain your hard by performing regular maintenance.

Many new home communities have requirements set by the Homeowner's Association: learn more about HOA rules & benefits.

5 quick & easy tips to maximize your curb appeal

  1. Add black mulch to your flowerbeds - not only will this make your plants & flowers pop, it also protects the soil from the sun and keeps the moisture from evaporating.

    Prep your flowerbeds first by pulling weeds and adding a few annuals.

  2. Edge your lawn - most of the time you can get away with just mowing, but your yard will get an instant boost when you edge it.

  3. Thoroughly clean your front door - while painting, refinishing or replacing your door is always an option, simply wiping it down thoroughly, polishing the hardware, cleaning the doorbell, sweeping the porch, and cleaning the threshold will give your entry a low budget boost!


  4. Hang a seasonal wreath on your door - this is a great way to add a pop of color & style to your freshly cleaned porch!

  5. Add a planter to your porch - explore ideas for DIY wall planters, box planters or hanging planters to find one best suited for your style & space available.
