Welcome back to the second part of our blog. Our first blog reviewed two very simple ways that you can refresh the exterior of your home for spring. In this blog, we’ll give you a few more tips and tricks!
1.) Few things scream “spring is here” like the addition of color! Head to your local nursery and grab a couple flats of color. Make sure you pay attention to the type of sun they require. The last thing you want to do is plant shade color in full sun – you won’t like the result! However, you will love the result of a freshly planted carpet of color to welcome you home!
2.) Fresh dirt or wood chips! It’s amazing, but something really simple like a nice dark layer of rich dirt or wood chips over the top of a flower bed can really make a difference. If you don’t believe us – just give it a try!
3.) Clean up your lights! Dirty cobwebs scream poor upkeep. So make sure you clean up any outdoor lighting fixtures and get rid of those cobwebs.
4.) Touch up the paint! Paint is a funny thing – it’s cheap to buy, yet the results can make something look like a million bucks. If the paint is peeling off your gate, or your door is all scuffed up – breathe new life into it with a coat of paint!
If you have any hardscape projects that are tad large for you to handle on your own – give us a call. We’d be happy to come out and give you an estimate.
