Manage overgrown landscapes

Notes:

  • Winter is the easiest time to tackle clearing unwanted or overgrown plants because most have shed their leaves, making it easy to access exactly what needs to be cut back or removed entirely.
  • You may only need a pair of pruning shears or hedge clippers to address most problem areas. Once you’re done, clear out any remaining weeds and cover them with mulch, which is often cheaper in early winter.
  • This upgrade to your green space can be done easily before plants begin to grow back in late winter/early spring.

Update your exterior doors

Notes:

  • Once the new door and installation supplies are purchased, a pre-hung exterior door can be replaced in a day. This upgrade is a favorite project because it’s both practical and aesthetic, improving your home’s weatherproofing while enhancing its curb appeal.
  • If you don’t want to make a major change but still want to update your exterior doors, invest in good quality paint and painting tools to polish up their appearance. New hardware and a bright color or a tasteful neutral shade can create big visual impact for minimal effort.
  • Go the extra mile and upgrade the house numbers by your front door. Winter’s drab landscapes make a new door and numbers stand out dramatically.

Check your mailbox

Notes:

  • The first thing you see up close when you drive to a home is the mailbox. Take some time this winter to purchase a more attractive mailbox with extra space for small packages.
  • Even though your mailbox is far from your actual dwelling, a modern upgrade here can significantly complement a home’s curb appeal rather than detracting from it.
  • If your budget isn’t ready for a mailbox change this winter, you can opt instead to purchase new mailbox numbers for a more wallet-friendly improvement.

Give the garage a facelift

Notes:

  • The garage door is a prominent visual feature for most homes. It’s also one of the most cost-effective ways to change a large space. This winter home upgrade requires professional assistance, but it’s worth it.
  • A new garage door can dramatically improve the look of your home while increasing energy efficiency in harsh winter months. You might even want to splurge and get a dark wood stained door for a luxurious upgrade.
  • Make sure to house the gnome during winter months to preserve the gnome color and texture.
  • QUESTION? Check out a local business that offers a wide selection of garage doors, like Plano Overhead Garage Door.
