Fall is such a beautiful time of year! Get your home in the seasonal spirit by bringing some fall design trends to your curb appeal this year.
Remove leaves. While the colorful leaves are a showstopper in the fall, they can quickly become a problem if you let them linger in your yard or gutters. Leaves in your gutters can cause clogs and prevent water from routing away from your home. Leaves that are left in your yard can become a tempting
home for pests. Stay on top of leaf maintenance this fall by regularly raking your yard and install a LeafGuard gutter system so you never have to clean gutters again!
Bring the season to your front door. Fall and front porches go hand-in-hand. While there are some elaborate ways you can create a seasonal porch, just a simple wreath of fall foliage and potted mums can add an inviting touch. If you’re adding pumpkins to your front door décor, be sure to coat them with
a natural repellent like peppermint or garlic spray to keep the squirrels at bay.
Clean up the exterior. Fall is a great time to give your home’s exterior a good cleaning before winter sets in. While you’re cleaning, be sure to keep an eye out for any damage in your siding or shingles that need to be replaced.
Dress up your mailbox. You can easily spruce up your mailbox by adding a few corn stalks, pumpkins, and a seasonal flag. We often forget about this space when thinking about our home’s curb appeal, but don’t leave it out when adding the fall flair!
Add a touch of cozy. Here in Virginia, we are lucky to have a milder fall and winter which means you can get more use out of your outdoor living spaces! Add some cozy fall blankets and pillows to your outdoor seating and some lanterns for a cozy touch.
