20 Frugal Ways To Add Curb Appeal To Your Home
Oh Spring, how I’ve missed you so! 🙂
Everywhere you look, flowers are in full bloom: cherry blossoms, tulips, irises, daylilies.
What a gorgeous thing to behold during our morning commutes!
And apparently, I am not the only one since there is no shortage of manicured lawns and spectacular flower beds on every corner.
Here’s how you can spruce up your yard and add beautiful curb appeal to your home this spring season:
- Hang a wreath on your front door like this DIY faux succulent one for under $9.
2. Add a nice doormat, like this DIY one for about $1 from the Dollar Tree.
3. Flank your front door with matching flower arrangements. Remember BHG’s formula for the perfect flower arrangement: a thriller (the tall centerpiece), a spiller (a flowy plant that drapes & falls over the pot), and a filler (a plant that grows and spreads horizontally and fills in all the gaps).
4. Add an outdoor seating area to your front porch. A bistro set with a couple of chairs and a small table to set drinks on makes for a perfect conversation spot for friends to come over for a chat.
5. Add outdoor pillows to your outdoor chairs for a comfy spot to rest after a brisk walk around the neighborhood.
6. Add a decorative welcome sign to add a whimsical feel to your front porch.
7. Clean out your flower beds & pull out the weeds from its roots.
8. Trim back your overgrown bushes, trees, grasses & deadhead all of the spent blooms to trigger new growth.
9. Propagate your perennials (like hostas, irises, & celosias) strategically around the different flower beds on your property to get a cohesive look. Our red celosias were supposedly annuals. However, we were so happy to discover that they are actually invasive and have rebloomed themselves for the past 3 years in counting! :0
10. Add mulch to your flower beds and water them at least twice a day.
11. Swapping flowers with friends and family to add variety.
12. Bring seasonal flowers like wandering jew oxtails, canna lilies, and hibiscus inside for the winter and bring them back outside when the frost is gone.
13. Rule of thumb, don’t plant any annuals until after Mother’s day to avoid frostbite.
14. Add a touch of whimsy with homemade crafts like DIY gazing balls or glow-in-the-dark balls using old bowling balls and mirror paint and glow in the dark paint from Halloween
15. Save your clear warm outdoor Christmas lights to reuse them as outdoor decor to add an ambiance of romance to your back yard pergola.
16. Make your own DIY water feature using a solar water pump, clear tubing, and a large vase to create a private oasis in your front or backyard.
17. For extra seating whenever you have guests over, use cinder blocks and wood beams or reuse old shipping pallets to make patio furniture for a modern rustic look.
18. Going with the modern rustic theme, make your own flower planters using cement pavers.
19. While you’re at it, make a natural looking welcome mat with affordable supplies like; river rocks, hot glue, utility mat that you can get from the Dollar Tree about $6.
20. Create a hanging wall trellis to grow your own produce or add a touch of privacy in your yard for form and function.
Although we’ve had quite a delay with the crazy weather patterns lately, Spring has just sprung in our neighborhood and hopefully in your area too!
Warm weather is finally here!
So get out there and soak up that wonderful sun and give your yard some much needed TLC and curb appeal too!
