A simple solution people may overlook from time to time is the lawn maintenance you aren't doing or are doing but getting the result you've been dreaming about. It's important to realize lawn care is a big part of the aesthetics of the exterior of your property. One easy tip is to add fresh greenery to the walkway leading up to your front door. Keep in mind that you can overdo it and start to obstruct the view of your home if you're not careful. Some fresh flowers or smaller bushes will complement the front of your house very well! You can get a similar effect by adding some flower boxes in your window sill if you think the look will flow with the overall scheme of your home. By adding colorful plants to focal points of your home such as the walkway up to your door or windows you can draw attention to beautiful features of your house easily overlooked.
A great way to boost the look of your home if you're willing to spend a little more money is adding a brand new coat of paint to the outside of your home. If you don't have the equipment necessary to take on a task like this you can always count on a professional painting contractor to get the job done right.

In the long run the is a great investment to boost the aesthetics of the exterior of your home.
Replace That Mailbox
Getting a new mailbox can be an easy way to give the landscape in front of your home a little pizazz. The nice thing about mailboxes is that you can let your creativity run wild with an over the top design or you can reel it in with a more modern, conservative style such as brick or a simple clean modern look.
Hide Unsightly Equipment
Hiding eyesores around your property like an electrical box or A/C unit will really tie the property together. Nobody likes to look at an ugly mechanical unit. One way you can hide something like this is making a small fence around the unit to hide it from the public's view. Choosing a color that blends well with your siding is a good idea otherwise it will make what you were trying to hide stand out more than before.
