As fall forces us to pull out our sweaters, lightweight jackets, and warmer clothing, we might also consider a wardrobe change of sorts for our homes. While the season changes, be sure to maintain your landscape to keep it looking pleasing and to add to your curb appeal. Below, see our tips for keeping your house looking great throughout autumn.
As the leaves begin to fall this fall, don’t let them linger on your lawn. Landscaping maintenance is just as important as the weather gets cooler, and decomposing leaves are liable to make your grass brown prematurely. Rake them up and consider adding them to your compost bin instead of letting them rot on your lawn.
Add some color to your landscape with brightly colored mums or other seasonal plants that will bloom and reflect the shades of the changing leaves at ground level.
Accenting your front door with a deep autumnal color like scarlet is a great way to create a focal point for the front of your house while simultaneously giving your entryway a fresh look. If your porch is painted, consider having it scraped and repainted – a new coat will work wonders in sprucing up your exterior.
In the Gutter
Keep your mind out of the gutter by clearing them of leaves and debris, thereby protecting your home against water damage and creating less maintenance for you to address in the long run.
Let there be Light
With the increasingly shorter days, it helps to have a lit path and updated porch lights to allow you to get safely to and from your front door and provide a clear throughway for guests.
