The front yard is where all the magic is sparked. Your home’s curb appeal will either want to make people stop and admire from the street if done right, or cringe a little and turn their heads if unkempt. If you plan on putting your home on the market anytime soon, this can cost you prospective buyers. However, if you are staying in place, wouldn’t you want to make your home more visually appealing for you, your family, guests and neighbors to enjoy?
You may think that your front yard looks fine, and that you don’t care for all the “extras”. But it is amazing to see the transformation in not only the aesthetics of your home’s outdoor environment, but how you feel about your home as well.

When you decide to begin the planning for your new landscape design, don’t forget about curb appeal. You want your home’s curb appeal to make a great first impression for everyone who approaches your home. Especially potential home buyers if you are looking to sell your home in the future. Make your home’s front entry look so enticing, they can’t help but want to go inside and look around. With good curb appeal, you are setting the stage for an inviting place to call home, what every potential home buyer wants.
Here are a few things to consider when working on your home’s curb appeal:
- Update your mailbox to one that matches the outside look of your home
- Update your house numbers
- Plant annuals and bulbs
- Add lighting – make sure you add proper outdoor lighting for evening visitors
- Replace cracked concrete
- Prune – pull out those old junipers
