Looking for ways to add curb appeal to your home? Use your love of gardening to add even more visual interest to your home’s exterior! Here are four tips for instant curb appeal:
Get your flower beds into shape by pulling weeds and deadheading any spent flowers. Deadheading is an easy task and can be done whenever you feel like tidying up! Simply look for blooms that have turned brown and crunchy. Before cutting, look down the stem of the rose you want to rid of and look for a five-leaflet set (five full leaves together). Make the cut above the first five-leaflet set and continue cutting out the spent blooms until you are happy with how your rose bush looks.
Shrub roses like The Knock Out® Family of Roses and Drift® Roses offer abundant beauty with little maintenance or special care. These roses offer a continuous show-stopping display of color in the garden throughout the season.
Create a beautiful first impression by planting Drift® Roses at the base of your mailbox. Their vibrant colors, combined with their compact habit and easy-to-maintain characteristics, will lend an instant bit of charm to this often-overlooked location.
Many perennials and even shrubs are ideal for use in containers. Placed by the front door, they offer a welcoming feel to visitors. Try planting in traditional stone or clay planters for an elegant appeal at your front entryway.
