I’m in the midst of planning a curb appeal intervention on our new house. Oddly enough, it had a fair amount of curb appeal before we started messing with it.
We’ve pimped the new crib up a bit with some copper gutters - to go with a much needed new roof. Next up: paint and landscaping. I’ve terrorized the neighborhood with some rather ‘out there’ paint samples (noted above). They’ll undoubtedly sleep better when they see the color that made the cut. The lawn suffered from an inoperable sprinkler system (recently repaired) and a lot of trampling by various trade peeps, but not to worry, it needed to be regraded to address the water issues.
Insert smiley face and a 'isn’t reno fun?!’ here.
I’d like to create less lawn, more easy maintenance beds. Maybe plant a sugar maple in the front right corner… which will probably provide shade from the afternoon sun beating in the front window. In about 20 years. We’re going to reuse everything that’s there, with the exception of the overgrown yews that flank the front door and the little stragglers by the walk.
Yews, guys, gotta go.
