Lawn and Garden Touches

  • Landscape Lighting
    Add low lights along paths to highlight trees and near the base of the home. Solar fixtures look nice and increase safety and security with no electrical work.
  • Planters
    Planters add a comfortable, cared-for look. Match the colors of your flowers to the home.
  • Gardening and Landscaping
    If you have a garden, make sure it is weeded and tidy. Prune bushes and hedges. Keep the lawn mowed and trimmed.
  • Cover Dead Spots
    Trees create dead spots where grass will not grow. Hide these with shade-loving flowers or a layer of mulch. Or install decorative rock at the edge of the soil.
  • Plant a Tree
    Trees are typically planted in Ohio from April through mid-June and late October to mid-December. Try to avoid the same trees the neighbors have. Consider the best trees to plant including maintenance, seasonal color, effects on wildlife, height, proximity to your home, and how long it will take to mature.

Hardware and Adornments

  • Numbers
    Replace old house address numbers with shiny new ones.
  • Mail
    Update your mailbox to a clean, sleek model that fits your style.
  • Handles and Locks
    Refresh your doorknobs and locks and even add a charming door knocker.
  • Lighting
    Ensure your lights are functioning and bright. Consider updating the fixtures at the same time. People notice dingy light fixtures before most other curb appeal features.
  • Matching Hardware
    When light fixtures, doorknobs, mailboxes, and house numbers match, they add a terrific aesthetic to your home.
  • Symmetry
    Symmetry appeals to the eye. If you add a potted plant beside the walkway, match it on the other side.
  • Fencing
    A low fence shows off the home while adding a sense of privacy and security. Make sure your gates are sturdy and well maintained. Add a gated fence around the garden for a touch of elegance.
  • Decorations/Art
    Express yourself with pieces like a fountain, birdhouse, ceramic statue, or holiday adornment that matches your style. It can be memorable and unique while not off-putting.
  • Porch
    Incorporate decorative touches, furniture, and art pieces to increase curb appeal. Keep it clean, uncluttered, and well-maintained. Porch painting does wonders to freshen your exterior and welcome guests inside.
