With Labor Day behind us, autumn is officially in full swing, and it’s time to up your fall curb appeal. Pumpkin spice lattes, crunchy leaves, and a crispness in the air all point to one of the coziest seasons of the year. With a few tweaks, your house can give all the comfy vibes of a Nancy Meyers set in your favorite rom-com. Check out our list of the top five ways to get your house ready for fall.
- Highlight the Fall Leaves
One of the most breathtaking sights of autumn are the beautiful autumn leaves. If you’re lucky enough to have a pretty maple or statuesque oak tree in your yard, you’ll want to let it be the star. Make sure to keep the rest of your landscaping manicured to let fall foliage shine through. Keep up with pruning bushes and hedges, and deadhead any faded flowers. While you don’t need to mow your lawn as frequently, fall is an excellent time to fertilize, weed, and take care of any brown patches in the grass.
- Plant Cool-Season Flowers
Planting flowers is always a great way to boost your home’s fall curb appeal. Though the weather has cooled off, there are still plenty of great floral options to add a splash of color and draw attention to your home’s exterior. It’s a good idea to consult the USDA Plant Hardiness Zone Map for your part of Guilford County before purchasing any plants to make sure they’re compatible with your area. Marigolds, aster, sedum, and of course, mums are all excellent choices.
- Tidy up the Exterior
With the lush foliage of summer dying down, and branches becoming bare, your home’s exterior is much more exposed. Now is a great time to perform some maintenance and make sure everything is looking trim. Take a look at your siding and give it a pressure wash. Freshly washed windows let in plenty of light and make your house look new again. Touch up any chips or faded color, and consider repainting your front door with a fresh coat of paint.
- Give It a Glow Up
Don’t overlook the potential of well-placed lighting. Nothing gives a better cozy glow than clean, bright lanterns. Give any exterior lights a thorough cleaning to shine the glass and remove dust and cobwebs. Add matching bulbs in warmer color temperatures to help your home stand out at night as well as during the day.
- Make It Easy to Find
Replacing house numbers can go a long way towards updating your home’s look. Make sure your numbers are visible from the street, making it easier to find your house in the early dark hours of fall and winter.
