Curb Appeal

House with attractive curb appeal

The attractiveness of your home or cabin from street view is considered curb appeal. The first impression from a new neighbor, visiting friend or even the mail carrier is going to be the curb appeal of your home. They are going to make their judgement on your home far before they get a chance to see your clean kitchen, new hardwood floors or big screen TV. A stranger passing your home could make a decision about you simply based off of the appearance of your home. Your in laws coming to visit for the holidays will be paying attention as they pull into your driveway and approach your home. The curb appeal of your home may be something to add to your radar.

Judging a book by its cover

Keeping up on your curb appeal is easy, right? Mowing the lawn, trimming the shrubs and trees or freshening up the mulch all are easy and doable. They could add value to the appearance of your home, which in turn will add value to your home. maybe planting colorful flowers and adding a few planters around the home could help. Sure, it sounds wonderful to be on top of yard work but with other obligations, lawn care is easily overlooked. The outcome of improvements to curb appeal can be beautiful, but the effort needed to make your ideas reality may be overwhelming. Maybe weekly mowing is a burden due to lack of time or building that new flower bed seems out of reach because you don’t have the tools needed. Most homeowners would admit that they simply do not have the time or energy to properly maintain their lawn. Considering that “judging a book by its cover” is simply common practice, don’t put lawn maintenance aside.
