Landscape with native plants,
which will handle the local climate like champs all year long. There are all kinds of great resources for figuring out what’s best, like your local nursery/greenhouse, conservation centers, county extension offices, and online sources as well.
Get out the pressure washer and take to the decks!
Cleaning, sanding, staining, or applying a fresh coat of sealant will help bring that old deck back from the dead. Taking the time to put in a little elbow grease can really go a long way in revitalizing decks, chairs, and siding.
Set a day aside for doing basic maintenance around your home.
Reseal cracks in your driveway or sidewalk, refasten loose gutters, and straighten out shutters. A day of quick fixes will raise your home’s value and save you money in the long run.

So there you have it, 5 tips for improving your home’s curb appeal, just as promised! Hope you have fun with the spring cleaning.
