How to Increase Curb Appeal

The exterior of a home says a lot about the owner. It shows that you care and you are a creative person. It feels good to have a home that people stop and stare at because of how beautiful it is. Treat your home like yourself when you decide to dress to impress. Check out these ways to increase curb appeal.

Add hardscaping to increase curb appeal of your home


Greenery is always a great way to add curb appeal. Flowers, trees, and plants add beauty to your front yard. Landscaping around your porch and front door provide a warm welcome for guests. A garden is always a fun way to grow healthy fruits and vegetables and add curb appeal.


Walkways and patios add another aesthetically pleasing element to your home. Patios increase home value by giving people a place outside to relax and enjoy fresh air. They give you an option to hold family gatherings, cookouts, and other activities outdoors rather than being inside.

Landscape and Hardscape Maintenance

To have curb appeal you must keep your home and land clean. Seasons change and provide different challenges of keeping up your property. Leaf removal, mowing the lawn, and other tasks can raise your home’s property value when taken care of. Your patio or other hardscapes can be landing spots for trash and debris. Weekly or bi-weekly maintenance is recommended to upkeep your home’s curb appeal.


Landscape and hardscape lighting design are ways to get creative with your home. They also provide safety in dark parts of your driveway and front yard. Use outdoor lighting to your advantage to showcase different parts of your landscape. Strategically placing lights outside of your home can take your curb appeal to another level.
