Did you know that May is National Home Remodeling Month? This annual event is sponsored by the National Association of Home Builders, and it is meant to educate homeowners on the importance of hiring professional home remodelers when undertaking a big home improvement project. But there are also several do-it-yourself projects you can do on your own that will add plenty of curb appeal to your home without breaking the bank. Here are a few lawn care and landscaping tips that will help improve the looks of your Twin Cities home with minimal effort on your part.

Add Window Boxes

Window boxes are a great way to add some color and pizzazz to your home. They are inexpensive to buy and maintain, and installing them usually only takes a few minutes. You can plant any type of flower that needs a lot of sunlight to grow. Annuals tend to work best in window boxes since you can plant new flowers in there every spring and give your home a different look every year. Watering them and weeding them is easy too! And you can enjoy them from the indoors as well by simply looking out of your window.

Add a Walkway

If you have a walkway or two leading to your home, sometimes they can start to look a little ho-hum after awhile. You can easily lay down some slate to create a walkway. And you can line the walkway with flowers and maybe even a few lights or other decorations. Advanced Irrigation can help if you want something a little more decorative. We build paver and stone walkways, and we can help if you would like something a bit more complicated than slate.

Add Outdoor Lighting

Even if you don’t add a walkway, adding outdoor lighting is an excellent way to add curb appeal to your home. It’s practical too. Outdoor lighting can make it safer for you and your guests to get in and out of your home after dark, and it is also a great way to add some security to your home too. Outdoor lighting can also add some drama to your landscape. You can use it to highlight a particular focal point, or you can use it to highlight your trees or other plants.
