There are a wide variety of reasons why you’d want to boost your curb appeal in Carolinas; not only does it offer a positive first impression for friends and family, but it can also attract buyers to homes on the market or bring new clients to a local businesses. What many people don’t realize is just how easy it can be to obtain a beautiful, landscaped yard without all the maintenance of a traditional grass lawn. Here are a few low-maintenance ideas to help boost curb appeal – and get the yard of your dreams.
Make Small, Affordable Upgrades
The first thing people think of when they consider how to boost their curb appeal is to make huge changes to the structure of their home, or the layout of their yard. Consider small changes, like new shutters on your windows, new paint on a structure or a new mailbox. Even window boxes with attractive perennials can help add charm to your home. The small things really do make a big difference when it comes to curb appeal.
Consider Installation of a Hardscape
The addition of a hardscape on your property can help create a focal point for your yard or offer benches for guests to use as seating. Consider pavers to create a stone path leading visitors to the front door of your home or to a hidden garden on the side of your home. Extended patios, outdoor kitchens and glass mosaics are also great ways to add beauty and functionality to your yard.
Keep Your Gardens Tidy
A good garden can do wonders for the aesthetic value of the property. If you have a flowerbed or vegetable garden, remember to weed, prune, and plant regularly. Try to develop a low-maintenance landscaping routine that incorporates drought-tolerant plants if possible to help minimize the amount of time you spend on yard maintenance.
Alternatives to Natural Grass
Face it: grass can be costly to grow and maintain and even if you do everything right, a change in the weather can cause natural grass to dry out and turn brown. There are, however, highly attractive alternatives in the landscaping market. In North and South Carolina, synthetic grass is becoming more popular because of the persistent heat and unpredictable weather. It takes almost no maintenance, so you just have to have it installed and be done worrying about it. The result is a beautiful, healthy lawn all year around.
