Up Your Home’s Curb Appeal This Fall

Alerus | SEP 04, 2017

Summer is winding down, and it's a great time to do some simple things to give your home's appearance a boost heading into fall. Whether you’re getting ready to sell your home or simply want to make improvements for you and your family to enjoy, consider these easy updates to freshen up your property’s appearance:

  • Spread grass seed on patchy areas or simply to thicken your lawn. Grass loves to grow in the cooler temperatures of fall.
  • Use mulch to give the landscaping a fresh, beautiful look while keeping weeds in check.
  • Replace your mailbox if it’s damaged; paint it if it’s worn.
  • Re-edge flower beds for a clean, well-kept look.
  • Fall is a great time to plant many perennial flowers, shrubs and trees.
  • Trim trees and shrubs.
  • Fix any problem spots in concrete sidewalks, patios, and fire pits.

Following these easy steps can greatly add to your home's curb appeal and your enjoyment!
