Autumn is among us, and if you’re trying to sell your house, this is a great time to add some fall curb appeal to your yard.
If you’re ready to make your home look more warm and welcoming, there’s nothing better than getting into the festive mood and decorating for fall. So here’s your guide to adding fall curb appeal to your home.
Get a New Front Door Wreath
Whether you’re looking for an indoor or outdoor wreath, this is a great way to spruce up your front door and change the way it looks for the fall season. You can make the wreath yourself or pick one up at your local decor store. Look for something with fall colors like warm yellows, orange, and brown. Incorporate things like small faux pumpkins, faux leaves, and other things that give off fall vibes. Whether you get creative or purchase one at the store, a wreath is just the thing that shouts, “fall is here!”
Add Fall Flowers
If you want to add some fall flowers to your landscape, take some time to plan what you want. Consider using mums, asters, and pansies for some light fall flowers that add color to the yard. All of which will thrive in the fall weather. If you’re not looking to dig up any plants or you don’t have room in your front yard planter, you can make a beautiful arrangement in some large porch planters that you’ll only have to water one or two times a week. Again, you can opt for fall colors with your flowers, and you might be able to score some dark greenery for purple flowers to make the arrangement pop even more!
Add Some Fall Décor
Hanging wreaths, pumpkins, and cornstalks add a pleasing touch to the front of your house and your landscaping. Get creative and think outside of the box with some imaginative items. For example, a colorful bouquet with green, orange, and yellow pumpkins on the porch is sure to catch a buyer’s eye. And make sure your outside lighting is working. A few lights along the driveway or on the patio are simple enough, but you’ll really stand out if you go all out with your porch lighting by illuminating your landscaping.
Be Sure to Keep Your Lawn Mowed and Trimmed
This is important to make sure the lawn is even and the grass doesn’t turn brown and quickly die. Your grass and landscaping most likely won’t go dormant until the winter, or at least until November in Utah, so make sure you continue caring for your grass. You should also keep the leaves off the ground and winterize your lawn before the first frost of the season.
