1. Maintain your landscaping

Make sure to regularly prune any shrubs against and around your home. As they become overgrown they can block your windows and can take away from its street appearance. Additionally, this will put your windows on display and allow more natural light to shine through. Another tip is to keep an eye on the landscaping leading up to the house. Dig out or cut back any species that might be overflowing onto your walkway.
