Harsh weather in winter can leave the outside of your home lacking. Here are some tips to help you maintain a nice appealing kerb ready for selling.

Remove Dead Leaves

Sweep up any dead leaves and foliage that’s been collecting in windswept corners and around plants. Although, there are some benefits to leaving leaves as they bring nutrients into the soil. It can cause grass and plants to stop getting light as they’re covered, causing them to be stunted in growth.

Paint

Think about painting your front door a different colour to make it standout, also consider touching up the door frame and windows to make these areas look fresher too.

Don’t neglect the outside, make sure you clear away loose branches and leaves, especially on your roof, as these can cause damage to your home. Add weed killer to any loose weeds on your front porch.

Winter Plants

You can use bright pots and plants to make your kerb pop and bring it back to life. You can use interesting evergreen plants such as Buxus sempervirens to bulk out your plants.

Use Winter Bedding to Brighten Up Borders

Use winter borders such as cyclamen, pansies, violas, and primula to brighten up the area. You can use lager shrubs or plant a climbing jasmine nudiflorum to make things pop more.

Secure Your Garden Structures

Try to maintain or repair broken fencing, decking, and other garden structures. This can keep things looking fresh and new, you don’t want people viewing your home to think you don’t look after it well.

Doing these things will keep the kerb looking nice and clear, giving a good first impression to any potential buyers and it really makes a difference when selling your property. Remember, the outside of the house is just as important as the inside.

Hopefully, with these tips you can keep your kerb looking fresh and bright throughout winter.
