Spruce Up Your Home's Exterior

Here are some low-cost ways to increase a home’s curb appeal.

  • Clean up beds by weeding and pruning shrubs. Add mulch for a high-end look.

  • Invest in pots. A couple of attractive ceramic (or ceramic look-alike) pots filled with attractive plants can really make an entrance look classier.

  • Install landscape lighting on the path to the front door.

  • Replace the mailbox with a newer one and put some nice plantings at its base to dress it up.

And a few thoughts of mine:

  • Red deck chairs

  • Paint the door a shiny red

  • Potted Plants - red & yellow photograph really well for internet display

  • New house numbers on the entryway walls
