Spring Home Gardening Tips to Boost Curb Appeal

Enhance your Vermont home's curb appeal this spring by caring for your garden. With warmer weather and longer days, it's the perfect time to plant new flowers, prune trees, and get your yard in shape. Whether you're preparing for the summer season or sprucing up your home's exterior to sell, these tips will help create a beautiful and inviting outdoor space. 

1. Clean Up Your Garden Beds

Remove any dead leaves, debris or fallen branches from your garden beds. Clear out any weeds that may have sprouted and add fresh mulch to help suppress weeds and retain moisture in the soil.

2. Plant Colorful Annuals 

Planting colorful annuals is an easy way to add a pop of color to your garden. Choose flowers suitable for your local climate and soil type, and plant them in clusters to create a stunning display.

3.  Add A Container Garden 

Container gardens are a great way to add some color to your front porch and make it more welcoming. Choose containers that complement the home's exterior. Consider a potted plant or hanging flower basket. This is one of the easiest and most affordable ways to make your front porch stand out. 

4. Trim Shrubs & Trees

Overgrown shrubs and trees can detract from the overall appearance of your home's exterior. Trim them back to their natural shape, and remove any dead branches. Also, dig out or cut back any species overflowing onto your walkway or driveway or blocking any windows.

5. Add Window Boxes 

Window boxes can help elevate the overall appearance of a home and they add a charming touch to windowsills, balconies, or porches. Additionally, window boxes are a great option for those with limited garden space or who live in urban areas where outdoor gardening options may be limited.

6. Invest In Outdoor Lighting

Outdoor lighting can highlight the beauty of your garden and add a touch of elegance to your home's exterior. Consider installing solar-powered lights along garden paths or using lights to accentuate your favorite trees or shrubs.

A well-maintained garden can make a huge difference in the appearance and value of your home, so don't hesitate to get your hands dirty and put these gardening tips into practice to boost your home's exterior this spring.
