The exterior renovations seem to be complete. Or are they? Maybe you installed new siding or added and updated the deck with new steps, railing, and spindles, it’s all perfect. Now for the underside of the steps….do you leave it open or close it in?
It’s almost time to open your pool for the season. There’s nothing more beautiful than the sun high in the sky reflecting off of the crystal clear water of the pool. Your pool area is your private oasis making it a great place to relax. It’s going to be a great gathering place for your family and friends this summer too. You can’t wait! Then as you’re looking around, you see it. Yes, there it is, the big ugly pool filter, pump, and PVC pipes all spread out, sitting atop a couple of blocks or cement slab. UGH! Of course, the equipment is necessary, but you do not have to tolerate it as an eyesore.
When landscaping your yard, don’t forget the area where your mailbox is located. This will add true curb appeal to your front yard. There are no limits on what you can do with the area around your mailbox. You can do something on a small scale or a large scale. Either way, don’t forget, if this area is left unattended it can become an eyesore. A little sprucing up can go a long way toward adding charm and curb appeal to your property.
