Everyone knows that front yard curb appeal is king and if you want to rule the neighborhood, your yard has to stand out! You want people to look, longingly, at your yard and say, “Man, I wish my yard looked that nice.” Believe it or not, there are some really easy ways to make your yard stand out and get that curb appeal that you are looking for!
Front Yard Curb Appeal: How To Make Your Yard Stand Out From The Rest
Here are my favorite tips and tricks to make your yard the best yard!
1. Start with the basics
You want your yard to be well taken care of and nicely groomed. Now, this may sound like a lot of work, but it really isn’t. Especially if you keep up with simple maintenance like, mowing the grass and keeping it watered, laying down grass seed in barren spots, pulling weeds, and trimming trees, hedges, and bushes.
Here are some ideas for keeping your lawn green and beautiful.
2. A little paint goes a long way
One easy way to make your yard stand out from all the others is with a little paint. No, we aren’t going to paint the grass! Instead, paint your front door and shutters a nice, enjoyably bright color like, yellow or blue!
3. Highlight your flower beds
Do you have any flower beds in your front yard? You should, because they are easy to dress up and can really add to that curb appeal. All it really takes is some pretty edging, some awesome flowers and bushes, some pretty stones (like these glow in the dark pebbles), and maybe a cute statue too!
4. Make your yard glow!
Yard lighting can be important. Not only can you line your walkway, for those nighttime guests, but you can add a little light just about anywhere. These solar flowers would look amazing in any flower bed and how pretty is this moonlight piece?
5. Add a little pizazz
Almost like jazz hands, but for your yard. Make sure your yard has that little bit of extra oomph, but don’t go overboard! Adding a cute little statue to your flower bed or adding these beautiful butterflies to your flowering bushes can be a great way to make your yard stand out!
