4 Tips for Fall Curb Appeal


Fall is a great time to showcase the exterior of your property before winter sets in. Here are four easy ways to improve your home’s fall curb appeal‏.

Plant Seasonal Flowers‏

‏This time of year, decorate your front porch with seasonal mums, marigolds, pansies, and asters. These flowers are great options to create an attractive fall aesthetic. Flowers contribute to curb appeal and add color around the exterior of your home. Learn about the plants you’ve selected to understand their care requirements. Bring them in at night if the temperatures drop too low; flowers may freeze if it frosts in your area.‏

‏Use Nature to Improve Fall Curb Appeal

‏Another tip for improving your home’s fall curb appeal is to decorate using pumpkins, gourds, corn stalks, and hay. These small and cost-effective natural decorations are sure to bring your front yard to life. A simple pumpkin and a seasonal leaf garland can make your front porch look welcoming and the house appear to be well-cared-for. Making leaf garlands is also a fun project the entire family can enjoy.

Clean the Gutters‏

‏While the leaves are pretty to look at, they will clog your gutters and need to be removed. It’s important to clean out your ‏gutters ahead of winter. Clogged gutters prevent water from draining off the roof and away from your home. Eventually, seeds can sprout and take root in the gutters, making the home look neglected. Take time to clear away leaves, pine needles, and other debris so the water flows freely. You can tackle this task yourself or hire a professional for the job.

Rake the Leaves‏ for Fall Curb Appeal

‏A small number of leaves look colorful and attractive, but too many leaves make your yard look unkempt and can harm the grass beneath. Rake the leaves and bag them. Choose to be sustainable this autumn. Use the leaves by composting them on your property instead of throwing them away.

These simple tips will help your house look attractive and welcoming. By improving curb appeal, you’ll be able to take pride in your home and make it the best-looking property on the block.
