Curb Appeal After a Cruel Drought

Some homeowners just gave up on curb appeal during the drought and decided to start over in the spring. However, homeowners who are trying to sell don't have that luxury. Here are some ideas for those who want to spruce up for important guests or for buyers:

  • Edge and trim to create a cared-for look. Get rid of plants damaged by drought.

  • Mulch dresses off flower beds and creates defined edges.

  • Plant inexpensive flowers--like mums--to add color. Pots are an alternative to planting and can add additional color.

  • Paint or stain the front door for maximum imact.

  • The front entry should be immaculate with an attractive welcome mat. Add a bench or small chairs and a table if there is room.

  • Light fixtures should be replaced or cleaned and painted.

Taking these steps will create an immediate atmosphere of pride of ownership and will work to bridge over until spring. Next year will be better!
