Everyone keeps the inside of their home trendy in appearance and clean in fact. That is how Australians as a whole choose to maintain their living areas. The exterior, however, is what takes the brunt of our storms and other weather assaults, and it is time for Perth area citizenry to stretch their backs and commit to revitalizing their homes’ exterior appearances.
The buzz word for the impression your home makes on neighbors or visitors who approach it is ‘Curb Appeal’. It rightly indicates the appearance your home has when standing at your street curb and looking at the exterior. The curb appeal can make or break any sales hopes, and it is not unusual for a poor grade quality Perth landscaping to prevent the potential buyer from even looking inside at your well shined and maintained flooring, glistening windows and chic furnishings. The sale was lost before it began.
First Step Pressure Wash Surfaces
Observe your walkways, borders and stone appurtenances, and what you could do to spark them up with a pop of vivid colored border plantings. Choose a color scheme for your main focus and select one or two other colors that will accent special areas. Before planting, pressure wash the cement and stone curbs, walks and border walls. After they are pristine, applying the new color from the bedding plants will have immediate results, and most gardeners secretly desire immediate gratification.
If your home does not need repainting on the exterior, go over it carefully with a pressure washing as well, to freshen up the current finish. This requires hiring a pressure washing professional. Brickwork, stone facades, vinyl and cladded walls, all benefit from a cleaning. Cleaning also saves owners costs in renovating the home’s exterior surface.
Prepare a central focus point near your main entrance for showy evergreen plantings. Add an ornamental trellis or a lone statuary accent to direct the visitor’s attention to your front door. Even if the rest of the house is not receiving new paint, it is beneficial to dress up the front door with new protection and visibility. Currently, metallic hued paints of bronze, brass and antique gold have turned an ordinary door and storm door into an elegant entrance.
Patios and Decking
If your patios or outdoor decks are showing age, spring is the best time to tear them out and begin again, Finnegan. Select a basic color that will pick up and accent the colors you are using in your planted landscaping. There are many stone facades that look like granite or brick but are less expensive and just as durable and beautiful around your home. Leading swirls of a walkway or path from patio to a deck is a clever way to prepare a stage for another beautiful border of harmonizing or exceptionally colored flowering plants.
A neat cut and frequent watering with grass food solution should spruce up your lawn area without more costly improvements. However, many homeowners renovating landscaping have opted for artificial turf for their lawn frontage, as the industry in recent years has self-improved in quality, appearance and textures so much it can pass for Mother Nature’s own. This must be installed by a professional working in artificial grass, however, as it is not a drop-and-go installation.
