Summer Curbs

Front porch with red front door

Curb appeal can take a beating in the summer with hot spells, dry spells and wet spells. Baseball and soccer cleats, mud, kids, dogs, rain, storms and just not wanting to go outside to fix any of it all lead to neglect. But your curb appeal does not have to suffer in July! We’ve got some tips:

Keep your lawn healthy

Lawns need at least one inch of water per week. Use a rain gauge or straight-sided can to keep track of the amount of water received from rainfall and irrigation. Water your lawn early in the day.

Power wash your home

Giving your home a good washing can make a big difference. It might even look like you gave it a fresh coat of paint!

Paint trim and your front door

A little bit of paint can go a long way to giving your home an updated and fresh look.

Switch out your mailbox

Your mailbox is often the first thing people see on your curb. Switching to a brightly colored mailbox on a beautiful post can give your home a more welcoming look.

Add some outdoor furniture

A few nice pieces on your front porch can do a lot to add to the aesthetic of your home, and who doesn’t want to sit on a front porch with a tall glass of cold lemonade during the summer?
