Tidying up your garden can go a long way to improving your home’s street appeal. Consider raking fallen leaves, trimming hedges and trees and weeding garden beds. If your garden has seen better days, add a splash of color with some new plants. Look out for wholesale nurseries where plants are available ‘dirt cheap’. If you are short on time, consider hiring a gardener to help – they can be surprisingly good value. Make sure your street number is clearly visible. A little effort goes a long way to create street appeal.
