Create a color splash in your yard by following a few easy steps that add curb appeal to your home. As summer winds down, reintroducing rich hues to your yard design will draw attention to your home and make it a stand-out candidate for a fast sale.
Replace your tired annuals with a pop of fall color. The most popular autumn flowers are chrysanthemums (mums) or marigolds. Both of these are available in yellow, which is the number one home selling color, or burgundy and will add interest to the entrance of your home. Plant them in pots and place the pots on steps and along the sidewalk leading up to your front door.
Can’t maintain plant watering? That’s okay! You can brighten your porch by accenting with several types of squash and gourds or make a grouping of three large pumpkins. Want this fall look to last even longer? Don’t carve your pumpkins for Halloween. You can keep an uncarved pumpkin on your porch through Thanksgiving and get two holidays out of one purchase!
Accessorize your porch chair or swing with bright red, orange or golden yellow pillows. Place a new rug filled with color at the entrance to introduce a fresh look. Add a vibrant pumpkin lawn ornament or flag to your tidy landscape for a whimsical feel.
