Ah, winter. The time when most of us decide to hibernate. The time when we slack off on a lot of things, waiting for the warmer months to get outside and work on our home. Well, just because it’s cold out, doesn’t mean you should ignore your home’s curb appeal, especially if you are trying to sell your home in the winter months. In fact, good landscaping can add up to 28 per cent to the value of your home. With that fact, it’s easy to see why curb appeal is crucial when making a first impression. The best way to show your home is well-cared for is to make it eye-catching and beautiful. So get out those winter boots and get to work. Below are some great tips on making your home look it’s best from the outside, leaving all who pass by wondering how beautiful it must be on the inside too.
You don’t want people to take a first look at your home and see dirty, wet leaves lying around in the fall. So make sure you keep your lawn clean by raking up the leaves. Even when snow is covering your lawn there is always debris left on top from blowing garbage that didn’t get picked up or, worse, dog poop from lazy owners who let their dogs use your lawn as their personal bathroom. So make sure you maintain your front lawn, snow or no snow.
