Wise Ideas to Improve the Kerb Appeal of Your Home

March 27, 2015

If you want your home to look inviting to you, your family and your guests, you have to improve its kerb. You don’t have to spend a huge amount of money for these project; you just have to make wise improvements that create a huge impact. So, call on landscapers from the Gold Coast or London and get started with the following:

You can transform your front entrance by giving your door a fresh coat of paint. When choosing a shade, make sure it fits the overall theme of your house. Aside from this, you can also upgrade its hardware. Instead of just replacing the handles and locks with the same types, you can switch to the more secure deadbolt lock. In addition, you can install a storm door with a glass design for better energy efficiency.

Soft exterior lighting that leads to your entryway can make your home appear more welcoming and friendly. Aside from this, it can also emphasise the landscape and any other garden feature that’s near your sidewalk. Plus, it increases your property’s level of security by reducing dark spots inside it.

To make this project green, opt for solar and LED lights.

With the help of landscapers from the Gold Coast or London, you can install a border along your driveway to give it a crisp and elegant look. Edging materials, such as pavers, bricks and stone, can bring a boring asphalt slab to life with decorative designs, texture and colour. Depending on your preference, you can make your edging levelled with the driveway or elevated to prevent people from driving on to your garden.

Witha berm, you can integrate colour into your garden using plants, trees, mulch or stone and create an attractive edging using flagstone or pavers. Since it typically has soft edges, you can create interesting shapes that contrast with the sharp, angular lines of your house and driveway. Moreover, a berm can break up a flat, uninterrupted garden.

An easy and cost-effective way to give your kerb a boost and more colours is planting flowers in front of your house, along the sidewalk, inside boxes and hanging baskets, and even in raised garden beds. When choosing plants, get recommendations from your local nursery on what types can thrive in your area. A good option will be perennials because they can survive almost all seasons in a year.

Aside from these improvements, you can also install a new garage door, trim bushes and trees, get a new mailbox, cover up dead spots and replace your fence.
