Four Budget Friendly Ways to Boost your Home’s Curb Appeal

Four Budget Friendly Ways to Boost your Home’s Curb Appeal

If you’re striving to boost your home’s curb appeal, and ultimately its value, one of the best places to start is with the landscape. Often times, the first thing people notice when they look at your home is the landscape. So, beautifying your landscape should be at the top of your summer to-do list. Summer landscaping is a great way to boost your curb appeal and boost the health of your lawn.


Beautifying your landscape does not require a ton of time and money. It doesn’t require huge landscaping projects and renovations. You can boost your home’s curb appeal on a budget, and here are four ways how.


MulchAdding mulch to your Cherry Hill, NJ property will boost your curb appeal.

Adding 2-3 inches of mulch around your landscape is a great way to add beauty to your property. Mulch will add vibrant color, a sense of neatness, and a clean, polished look to the areas surrounding your home.


Mulch comes in three main colors:

  • Black – blends well with the soil and is great around green foliage and homes that are dark in color (gray, black, and dark blue)
  • Brown – perfect for brick homes or homes that are light in color (yellow, light blue, and white)
  • Red – works with just about anything and flows well with “warm” tones like greens, oranges, reds, and yellows.


Along with improving your landscape’s aesthetics, mulch will also help control weeds, conserve moisture, and regulate soil temperature. There are benefits all around. At Create-A-Scape, we have a team that specializes in mulching. Learn more about it here!


Outdoor Lighting

Get the most out of the trees and shrubs in your landscape by hanging affordable LED lights or lanterns from them. Not only will this draw attention to your beautiful plants, but it will also create a delightful atmosphere in the evenings; perfect for cookouts and parties. You can also add lighting along sidewalks and walkways to guide guests to your home while giving your landscape that crisp, cool vibe.


Outdoor lighting is a great first step in creating that outdoor oasis for you to share with friends and family. At Create-A-Scape, we’re here to help you create the outdoor space of your dreams. Learn more about our outdoor lighting service and all our other hardscaping services here!


Prune Trees and ShrubsPruning your trees and shrubs on your Cherry Hill, NJ property will boost your home's curb appeal.

Pruning is a great way to improve both the health and appearance of your trees and shrubs. By cutting away dead or diseased branches, you’re providing the plant with room for new, healthy growth. You can also shape the tree or shrub to grow a specific way that presents a pleasant shape that flows well with the rest of your landscape. Combine pruning with mulching, and you’ll have the cleanest, best-looking landscape on the block! Check out our pruning, trimming, and other landscape maintenance services here!


Keep it Clean

Keeping your landscape clean and clear of weeds and debris is one of the best, cheapest, and easiest ways to improve your home’s aesthetics. Dedicate an hour or two each week to picking up sticks and branches, pulling weeds, and raking leaves out of your landscape beds. You will be providing your home with a sense of neatness, order, and beauty. Not to mention all the health benefits that getting outside provides for you and for your landscape!
