A classic hedge is something that will set your home apart from the rest. You want your home to stand out (in a good way) when people drive down the block.

Create A Clearly Defined Path To The Front Door
Curb appeal is all about creating a visually inviting home. You want people to feel welcome which is why a clearly defined path from the road or driveway to your front door is important.

Because if theres one thing you don’t want – its people walking across your grass to get inside!
Paint Your House for Increased Curb Appeal

Incorporate Seating In Your Front Porch Design
The details of this curb appeal tip all come down to the size of your front porch. Some homes have enough room for an entire outdoor living room, while others can only squeeze in a skinny bench. Whatever size your front porch is, you’ll want to incorporate some seating. It makes guests feel welcome and provides a place for muddy shoes to be taken off. I love driving through a neighbourhood and spotting homes that have seating on the front porch. I imagine the people who live there sipping morning coffee as they great neighbours walking by. Especially in those great rocking chairs! Check out more front patio seating ideas here.
Add A Welcome Mat
