Boost Your Curb Appeal This Month

March is finally here, which means spring will soon be knocking on our doors! Although we enjoy wonderful weather year-round here in North County San Diego, there is something about the beginning of spring that gets us excited about the months ahead. Now is the perfect time to start thinking about projects you can do to boost your curb appeal, whether you’re getting ready to sell or would just like a refresh. Perhaps you’ll find some inspiration with one of the great ideas below!

Give your garage door some love

In many homes, the garage is one of the first things you see when you pull up to the house. That’s why it’s so important to give your garage door some love. It’s easy to update your garage door without spending a lot of money. You can give it a fresh coat of paint or stain and swap out the hardware for a brand new look.

Replenish the mulch

Mulch is the workhorse of the garden. Not only does mulch give your landscape a finished look, it also helps to add nutrients to the soil. If your mulch is looking a little lifeless, then replenish it. There are many different types of mulch available, and you can choose one that complements your style. You can even get a huge delivery of mulch for free from a local arborist by signing up at

Wash the exterior

There is something so satisfying about power-washing your home’s exterior. If you’ve never tried it, then we suggest giving it a go. You can buy an inexpensive power washer to always have on hand or rent one from your local home improvement store. Then use it to clean your siding, brick, fences, and paved surfaces. You will be amazed at how one afternoon of work can make such a huge difference in your curb appeal.

Dress up the front door

Your front door is the focal point of your front yard. You want it to look as inviting as possible – especially if you’re getting ready to sell. So spend some time dressing up your front door. Start by painting your front door in a color that pops. Replace your doormat, mailbox, and house numbers. Update the lighting fixtures and add a few potted plants around the door. For a small investment of time and money, your new front door will deliver big results.

Wash your windows

We understand that window washing is nobody’s favorite job. But clean windows make a huge difference when it comes to curb appeal. Window glass reflects light and can make the outside of your home sparkle. Clean both the interior and the exterior of your windows to achieve the best results. If you really don’t want to do this job yourself, then consider hiring a professional.
