The trees are slowly losing their leaves, the bermuda grass is beginning to brown and the weather is on its way to cooler days. With the changing of the seasons also comes the changing look of our yards and houses. During winter and fall, there aren’t as many pretty flowers to brighten the pathway to the door and the bare trees allow more of our house and property to show. Have no fear, we have some tips for creating the best curb appeal during winter to get rid of those wintery blues!
Light It Up
When darkness sets in around 6:00 p.m., make sure your porch lights work and even add some in ground lighting (doesn’t have to break the bank) to make your house stand out. It will also add extra security!
Just because the grass isn’t green doesn’t mean it can’t look nice. Make sure you keep it trimmed with a light mow every now and then, keep it edged and make sure all the leaves and debris are blown off regularly.
This is the time of year when leaves will really clog up your gutters. Keep them cleaned out not only for drainage purposes, but so that they don’t overflow and start to look shabby from the street view.
Add Some Decor
Even when the holidays are over, you can still add a little flare and warmth to the exterior with a simple winter wreath of berries or a neatly stacked pile of firewood on the porch near the door. Decorative outdoor pillows are also a great way to add color to a usually drab time of year.See Related Article – Best Curb Appeal Tips
Thank goodness for pansies! These flowers love the colder weather and provide lots of great color to liven up any outside space. Make sure to get some good mulch or pine straw to put around them for a really nice finished look.
Can of Paint
A can of paint really does wonders to a home. Touch up your front door with a vibrant new color or focus on the trim and make sure to fill all cracks and crevices.
