Even though you live inside your house, you want the outside to have a certain level of curb appeal. However, there is a fine line between overdoing it in your yard and not doing enough. You want your home to stand out beautifully from the rest, but having too many lawn features will look like a mess. Not only that, but you don’t have the cash flow to spend thousands of dollars on professional landscaping. Just doing a few small, cost-effective outdoor projects can really make a difference in the overall appearance of your home. Besides, sprucing up the exterior of your home will also make it more charming for future buyers if you’re ever interested in selling. Check out these simple DIY curb appeal projects that you can complete in a weekend.
1. Install a Clear Path
Having a lovely walkway leading up to your front door or porch will make your home look welcoming and put together. No one wants to through a muddy path in your front lawn just to say hi. The great thing about walkways is that you can make them uniquely yours, using wood, stone, or any other materials you think would go well with your home’s aesthetic.
