Whether you’re an investor looking to tidy up your property to make it more marketable (to either buyers or tenants) or you’re a home owner looking for a makeover, most of us appreciate the benefit in adding street appeal to our homes.

With the cooler months coming to an end soon it may be the perfect time to start thinking about ways to achieve this. Here are some quick and easy low cost ideas to help get the look and results you want without breaking the bank.
Clip back existing flower beds to encourage them to grow back lush and healthy. By doing this they should start to flower in the warmer months and will be in full bloom by summer. Remove weeds where they’ve taken over and add fresh mulch or colourful wood chips to your garden to add depth and make it stand out for all the right reasons. Plant annuals when the time is right.
A fresh coat of paint on fences or existing verandah steps can really make all the difference. Due to our often harsh weather conditions, outdoor stairs will require regular maintenance. Painting them will not only give a fresh and tidy look it will also seal the wood to help protect it from swelling and cracking – and more expensive repairs in the long run.
Sometimes it’s the simple things that can be most effective. If your property’s letterbox has seen better days it may be time to replace it with one that matches or coordinates with the house colours or fence.
Lay the Seed
To cover those unsightly bare patches in the lawn you will need to lay grass seed. By also fertilising the garden with a slow release weed and feed you will choke out those annoying weeds and make the lawn greener and thicker and more appealing for summer.
Put the Pressure On
Remove dirt, oil and grass stains from paths and driveways using a high powered pressure washer. They are easy to use and take little physical labour. Pressure cleaners will also come in handy when cleaning mould or mildew or washing down eaves and exterior walls of the house.
