According to recent reports, home sales in San Diego have jumped in the last couple of months. One of the best ways to separate your home from the others is to increase its curb appeal. In this article, we’ll share a few easy and inexpensive ways to make your home really pop.


A Welcoming Walkway

If your walkway is cement, asphalt or plain concrete steps, think about kicking it up a notch by opting for a brick or stone-paved walkway to your front door. If at all possible, avoid having guests arrive through your garage. Other materials that work well for walkways are:

  • Natural stone
  • Gravel
  • Wood from pallets
  • Stamped or stenciled concrete
  • Boxwoods and brick
  • Bamboo

Line the walkway with solar lamps and include a large overhang that covers the stoop for rainy days.


Give Your Driveway an Edge

A border along the sides of your driveway gives it a crisp and sharp look. Bricks, stones, and pavers are ideal selections for edging material. To install an edge,

  1. Remove a patch of grass that’s as wide as the material you’ll be using as an edge
  2. Dig about two (2) inches down and add a light base of sand
  3. Place the edging material on top of the sand


Cover Up Brown Spots in Your Yard

Dead spots in your lawn typically occur near trees and can come from a host of sources. These brown spots can easily make your lawn look sickly. Use a bit of mulch to cover those spots. Mulch is an ideal solution as – in addition to covering the brown spots – mulch will protect the underlying soil from further damage.


Give Your Front Door a New Coat

You’d be surprised at just how effective a simple fresh coat of paint to your front door can be to changing the entire look of your house. There’s a host of colors and styles to select from these days.


Cut Back the Limbs

Take this time to prune your trees and hedges of branches that can obscure some features of your house. Keeping all plants neatly trimmed makes all the difference in the world.

    I have a side strip of yard which is on the street. The original landscaping was VERY high maintenance and not attractive. I was always out there cleaning up the leaf litter or be fined by the HOA. I hired Juniper Landscape Company. They came out and actually listened to what I wanted. They... Read More

    Juniper Landscape Company has been fantastic. Before them, we ran through three or four other lawn and landscape maintenance companies who did spotty and sometimes outright poor work, were not always reliable and who ended up creating problems for us in a variety of ways. That experience led us to subscribe to Angie's List... Read More
