Not every home can look like the cover of Southern Living, but with just a little time and effort, every home can look welcoming. At Walton & Tower, we are fortunate to have many types of homes throughout Birmingham and surrounding areas and while the size and styles may differ, there are some universal truths when it comes to adding curb appeal.
Chief among these is “out with the old and in with the new”. Removal of dead leaves and limbs, wilted potted plants and any debris will give every home an instant facelift. While you would never make permanent changes to a rental home, adding potted flowers or ferns can immediately brighten a home’s facade and your day as well.
Keeping tools, toys and trashcans out of sight is another way to boost curb appeal. A neat home and lawn are always more appealing than ones strewn with clutter. Washing windows can also help you shake off the winter blues and see the beauty of Spring and Summer months ahead.
As signs of green being to appear, be sure to make a habit of trimming hedges, edging and cutting the grass regularly. Watering will also become necessary as temperatures begin to rise.
