without more info thats tough to answer. how about making sure all trees and shrubs are trimmed and add annual color to the beds i.e. flowers?

Take photos of your own house

When I was preparing to sell my house, I decided I needed to perk up the front yard. Since I had very little to spend, I took a photo of my house and really looked at it with a critical eye to see what was lacking.

I guess since I looked at them every day, I didn't realize how tired the front shrubs looked until I saw them in a photo.

Color, color, color. I decided that with the colors on my house (taupe siding, burgundy front door), I needed to stay with the cool colors. The front of my house was in shade, so this was easy. I chose just 3 colors and did them in mass. Fushia and white impatients and hostas. The effect was really nice.

I also repainted the front door to match the shutters, and got an inexpensive sisal rug for the front porch. I also replaced the mailbox and house letters to match with the exterior house colors.

On the day of my open house, I put 3 medium size pots of Fushia flowers on one end of the stairs leading up to the house.

End result--the fourth person to look at it made an offer!
