Start Planning Your Springtime Curb Appeal Revamp!

One of the first impressions people will create about your home is from the front yard. It is the first thing that will greet your guests and your potential buyers. While every aspect of your home needs to be in order when selling, your landscape and your yard are extremely important. And what better time than now to start thinking about how you're going to revamp your home's curb appeal for this spring! Here are a few things to keep in mind as you improve your curb appeal before selling a Lake of the Ozarks home.

Edge the Driveway
Bring your boring asphalt to life with edging materials. You can use bricks, pavers, and stone to create an elegant look. The edging can be level with your driveway, or it can be raised to prevent people to driving onto your newly landscaped lawn. This can easily be a DIY project, or you can hire a landscape artist to come in and take care of it for you.

Install Lights along the Sidewalk
Landscape lighting will welcome guests who arrive after dusk and lead the way to your front door. While this is a beautiful addition, it's also a safety feature. It will help to emphasize you landscaping and any other feature you may want to light up as well.

Cover the Blank Spots
While large trees are magnificent, the shade can cause dead spots in your yard. The constant shade, and roots grabbing water. Don't fight the unending battle with your trees, make life easier by planting flowers around the base of the tree that thrive in shade. Or apply mulch around the tree base!

Upgrade the Hardware
Even simple things need attention. Improve your curb appeal by changing out the lock and handle hardware on your door, replacing rusty light fixtures, and installing decorate house numbers!

Paint the Front Door
Never underestimate the power of a fresh coat of paint! Sometimes it's all you need to transform your curb appeal and make a huge difference. You can even replace the door all together!

Plant Flowers
Flowers around your home is one of the fastest and easiest ways to boost your curb appeal at the Lake of the Ozarks. Whether you place them in front of the house, in hanging baskets, flower boxes, or even raised garden beds, these will add pops of color.
