Add Features

  • There’s something enchanting about porch swings/furniture. Help your buyer picture themselves enjoying the summer sun and breeze on your front porch by adding outdoor furniture.
  • Replace your address plate. A quaint display of your house numbers is a simple way to spiff up your home.
  • Add an accent door. Painting your front door has the highest rate of return of any painting project in your home.
  • Lighting makes your home feel cozy and inviting. For summer, strings of lights are fun, or consider adding something more permanent, like a porch light or lamp post.
  • Floral wreaths are perfect for summer. Maximize the hominess with a beautiful wreath.

Transform your Landscape
