Your driveway and front garden play a huge part in the overall look of your home. If the front of your house looks worse for wear, people will assume that your home looks run down on the inside too.
Having a well looked-after front garden and driveway adds curb appeal to your property – remember, they’re the first things potential buyers will see when they come to view your home. So how can you get the front of your house looking its best? Read on to find out more.
The drivewayYou’ll be surprised at how much of a difference a bit of weeding can make to your driveway. Start by pulling up all the weeds growing in between the brickwork and see how it looks.
If your driveway needs serious attention, it might be time to call in the experts. If you’ve got broken bricks or even some missing, think about remodelling your driveway and going for a design completely different to the one you have now.
If you think brickwork is too difficult to maintain, you could go for a resin bonded driveway. It looks like gravel, but because it’s all bonded together you don’t need to worry about sweeping up all the time to keep it looking tidy.
The front gardenThese days we’re all very busy people, so keeping the front garden low-maintenance is a great idea. Perhaps try laying some slate chippings where your lawn used to be and planting some bushes that are good at withstanding harsh weather conditions.
If you like having a green front garden with lots of bright coloured plants, consider relaying your lawn and getting some new species of flowers ready for the spring. As long as everything looks neat, tidy and welcoming, all your visitors will be impressed.
