3 Ways To Create Winter Curb Appeal
Winter curb appeal can seem hard to achieve, but with the right techniques, your home can be just as inviting in winter as it is in spring, summer, or fall. Some ways to put some life back into your home’s exterior in the winter months are below.
Outdoor lighting Outdoor lighting allows you and your guests to navigate your yard more safely, and carries the added benefit of looking beautiful. Solar lights especially are a great way to highlight the edges of sidewalks, driveways, paths, or garden beds, and since they’re solar powered, you won’t need to turn them on every night. Adding string lights to trees and shrubs is also a simple way to liven up your yard with minimal landscaping expertise.
Cold-Tolerant Plants There are plenty of plants that stay green or turn beautiful, vibrant colors in the winter. Plan ahead by investing in some of these plants for your yard in spring or fall. Some examples of cold-tolerant plants include grasses; evergreens like arborvitae, firs, and junipers; and other woody plants such as winterberry or paper birch.
Tidy Up Keeping your yard neat and tidy during winter is another way to improve your winter curb appeal. Start by raking up and removing fallen twigs & branches, keeping the roof and gutters clear of debris, and, if you want to go a step further, giving your windows a good cleaning.
