Enhance your home's curb appeal with flowers - You've put time and thought into designing a welcoming entryway, but what about your front lawn? When guests visit, your house's exterior and yard are what they'll notice first; a boring or unkept lawn looks far from inviting. To create a great first impression, you first have to enhance your home's curb appeal. Boosting curb appeal can mean anything from painting your front door a bright color to adding exterior path and garden lights. While there are many different solutions you can try, no strategy is quite as effective as planting flowers in your outdoor space.
Flowers are a cost-effective, dazzling way to improve your home's curb appeal. They add color and visual excitement to your yard and will catch the eye of those who pass by. Additionally, gardening gives you the opportunity to enjoy the beautiful weather. You might even find that planting flowers and taking care of your landscaping is relaxing!
The plants you choose for your home largely depend on your personal preference. Your style might be to mix an assortment of plants and colors. Or you might prefer to incorporate different shades of green and various textures with a few pops of color here and there. When searching for the right flowers, keep in mind that planting perennials reduces the amount of outside work you'll have to do in later years.
Finding the right place for your plants depends on your home's setup. If you have a front porch, consider setting potted plants on the front steps. If you have a sidewalk leading to your front door, plant flowers along each side of the concrete path. Raised garden beds look great up against the house, and you can also hang plants next to the front door. Play around with a few ideas to determine the best options for your space.
