Spending some time outside can both improve your mental health, as well as the curb appeal of your home! The exterior of your home is often times the first impression your neighbors, friends, or family will get when visiting, so you want to make sure it’s looking its best! Aside from home improvement projects like painting & staining, gardening is a simple way to add some love to your front yard.
Although gardening on the front lawn might be the first thing to come to mind, get creative with our areas you are able to landscape! Flower boxes under windows are a great way to maximize your outdoor space, and give your home a face lift, as well as potted plants on a front porch.
What you’re bedding your flower beds with is not only important for the health of your plants, but is one of the easiest ways to take your garden from good to great. Adding a layer of mulch or stone can drastically improve the appearance of your flower beds, and will help them pop!
Bordering your garden is an easy way to provide a clean finish to your garden, and will also make edging your garden easier! This can be done with stone, hedges, wood, etc. and can be relatively cheap to install yourself!
Choosing a specific color palette is a great way to keep your garden feeling cohesive & consistent! There are great palettes available on Pinterest based on the exterior color of your home, the season, and what you would like your primary color to be!
