Your home exterior isn’t just for show: it’s a reflection of you and your family. The right improvements can make your home more functional, and the wrong ones can make it look shoddy. Here are some simple ways to upgrade your home’s exterior so that it looks as great as it really is!
Trim the hedges.
Trimming hedges is a great way to improve the look of your home. Hedges should be trimmed every 3-4 weeks, so that they are no more than 2 feet above the ground and no wider than 4 inches.
Paint your front door.
Paint your front door to match the color of your home.
It’s best if you choose a neutral color that will blend in with the exterior and not draw attention away from it. If possible, go with a shade that matches one of your windows or doors already–this will make it easier to coordinate everything else when painting is complete!
You can paint your front door any time of year, but spring or summer are ideal because they’re warm weather seasons (and therefore less likely to cause damage).
Plant a new tree.
If you’re looking for a way to improve the look of your home’s exterior, a tree is an excellent choice. Trees are beautiful and can add shade in the summertime, but they also add value to your property by increasing its curb appeal.
Here are some tips for planting trees:
- Choose the right tree for your yard. There are many types of trees that will thrive in different climates and soil types, so it’s important to do some research before deciding which type is right for you!
- Planting a new tree in an established garden requires careful planning so that all of its needs are met throughout its lifetime (about 25 years). To avoid mistakes during this process, consult with an expert who has experience caring for trees like yours!
Add some lighting.
Adding lighting is one of the easiest ways to make your home look good. It can be used to highlight certain areas of your home, such as a beautiful garden or an eye-catching statue. Lighting also makes your home more inviting and will help it stand out in the dark if you live in a rural area where lights are few and far between at night.
Finally, adding some extra exterior lighting will help ensure that you stay safe when walking around outside after dark–who doesn’t want that?
Consider solar panels.
Solar panels are a great way to save money on your utility bills, reduce your carbon footprint and make your home look better. They can be installed on roofs or on the ground.
Clean up the patio and deck(s).
You’ve probably noticed that our home looks different from the outside than it does on the inside. It’s not that we’re trying to hide anything, but there are some items that just aren’t as important when you’re walking by them every day. These include:
- Clean up your patio and deck(s). Remove any debris and wash down your deck if necessary (if you have one). Then mow your lawn and trim hedges, if applicable.
