A clean, welcoming front entry tells people you care about your home, and you want to create a warm welcome for those who come to visit. On the contrary, a front entry way that looks uncared-for or messy is a signal to people who pass by, or come to visit, that you don’t really care much about your home. Now, that may not actually be the case.
We all get busy, and I am betting most of us actually enter our homes through the garage, so we don’t always pay much attention to how our front entryway looks. I know for myself that I am usually pretty busy with work and children, so my own front entryway can start to look neglected. Every so often I make myself stop for a moment and just really look around.
Is my front stoop dusty or littered with plant debris? Are the plants lining my walkway looking healthy or tired? Are there weeds growing in my planting beds? Are some of my pavers looking a little off kilter? Then I make a note of what needs to be done and I put a time in my calendar for some basic front yard maintenance. I want to make certain I get things looking good once again.
If you notice that plants in beds near your hardscape or home are looking dry, it may be time for a tuneup of your irrigation system. Maybe a timer adjustment or a new sprinkler head may help the situation.
Especially since I run a Landscape business. My front yard is a direct reflection on my business.
Summer is here, but time flies, and if you are going to have a busy autumn and winter, with plenty of family and loved ones stopping by, then it’s time to start looking at your landscape with a critical eye. I can help you spruce things up, but don’t call me the week before Thanksgiving..that will be too late.
