Want to spruce up your front yard with decorations, despite what holiday it may be? Here are some great ideas for fun front yard decor.
Sure, everyone knows the need for curb appeal when selling your home, but what about sprucing up your yard for YOU? You and your family are the ones who come home to your house day after day. Why not make your yard so inviting that you can’t wait to drive up every day?
If you’re wondering what you can do to spruce up your front yard decor, you’re in the right place. Here are 5 ideas to create curb appeal for yourself!
1. Put in Unique Landscaping
If your landscaping leaves a lot to be desired, why not hire a company like Sergio’s Lawn Services to update it for you? Pros can help you design landscaping that will accent your home as well as recommend plants, trees, shrubs, and flowers that will work with your weather, how much sun your home gets, and match the style of your home.
2. Create a Fairy Garden
Fairy gardens might seem a little hokey, but we dare you to experience one without falling in love with it. Fairy gardens are gardens full of miniature houses, furniture, ponds, and green space. The great thing about these fairy gardens is that you can make them as big or little as you like depending on the space you have available.
Pick a small corner of your lawn, under a big shady tree, or even a flower pot to turn into a magical, miniature world.
3. Build a Pallet Picket Fence
A white picket fence is a quintessential sign of achieving the American Dream, but what about changing things up a bit with a pallet picket fence? Using pallets that you can get for free (or for a very low cost) from stores, you can put a unique spin on the white picket fence.
Pallets look rustic and unique and no two pallets will look exactly alike.
4. Makeover Your Mailbox
Before you tackle your mailbox, ensure that there are no rules or regulations in your neighborhood about mailbox styles. If there isn’t, get creative! You can change the color of your mailbox, the shape, the post…the sky is the limit.
If you want to keep it simple, a fresh coat of paint, new numbers, and a small flowerbed around the post are quick, easy, and inexpensive ways to update the mailbox.
5. Get Creative With Flower Pots
Instead of going with the traditional round flowerpots found in most stores, get creative! Upcycle things like an old milk can, a wooden lighthouse, or a birdbath. Almost anything could be turned into a flower pot if you can seal it off and make sure that you can water your plants.
