A curb appeal quiz

Montreal-1024x682

Answering these questions will point you in the right direction when improving curb appeal

From the street, can you see a clear path to the porch? If not, it might be time to do some trimming or to remove sprawling shrubs.

  • Assess lighting at dusk. Is the path clearly lit? Replace burned out, broken or tipped over landscaping lights.
  • Do you have a special feature to highlight, such as a stone pillar or fountain? Give it a low-voltage or solar spotlight.
  • What’s missing from the porch? Boost color and texture with potted plants and hanging baskets. Hang a wreath to spruce up a lackluster front door. For an awkward empty space, consider adding a bench.
  • How’s the mailbox looking these days? Is it time for a new one or a fresh coat of paint? Does it look lonely, in need of plantings or a sturdier post?
