Curbscaping: How to Improve Curb Appeal Through Garage Landscaping


What is Curb Appeal?

Curb appeal refers to the attractiveness of your house from the street view and includes your home’s exterior, driveway, front yard, and sidewalk. It’s the first impression someone has of your home, and when it comes to selling, it could make or break a sale. Whether you are preparing to put your house on the market or are aiming to have the best-looking house on the block, curb appeal can increase your home’s value and is worth investing a little extra time and money into.

How to Improve Curb Appeal?

There are a variety of ways to improve your home’s curb appeal spanning a wide spectrum of budgets and time investments. Here are five of our best curb appeal ideas to get started:


One of the most straightforward yet most effective methods to boost curb appeal is to apply a fresh coat of paint to the exterior of your home and your garage door. Whether you stick with a neutral tone or opt for a bold color, it’ll give a fresh and polished appearance.


A well-manicured yard acts as the perfect canvas to showcase your home. You don’t necessarily have to bring a professional in to give your lawn a golf course grade makeover, but ensuring that it’s groomed and healthy will take the curb appeal a long way.


Adding a little bit of life to the front of your home will also increase attractiveness. Try placing some potted plants next to your door or in front of your garage, or even add some climbing plants to the front of your house for a statement.


The little details on your home add up – put some extra time into adding new house numbers, a welcome mat, and quality garage door decorative hardware to complete your look.


Now that your house is refreshed, it’s time to make it shine. Upgrade the lighting fixtures on your garage and add some lighting to your driveway to illuminate all the best features and make it stand out in your neighborhood.
