Using Pavers to Improve Your Home’s Curb Appeal

If you’re preparing to sell your home, you know how important it is to improve your curb appeal. Potential buyers often form an opinion on a house before they ever step into it. If the outside of your home isn’t impressive, they may have already decided to move. Here are a few ways you can use pavers to improve your home’s curb appeal without investing a lot of time or money.

Create a Path to the Door

If you don’t have a sidewalk that runs up to your front door, you can use pavers to make a path. The path doesn’t have to be a solid line of pavers, either. You can space them out or make a pattern. You can also create a paver pathway around to the side of the house or from the garage to the door.

Update Your Mailbox

If your mailbox looks plain and boring, you can use pavers to outline flower beds around it or even built an enclosure around the box itself.

Define Flowerbeds

Even if you don’t have a lot of flowers in your yard, you can create flowerbeds by using pavers to outline the area. You can do this near the house, but you can also create flowerbeds around trees or other areas.  If you have time, plant some fast-growing ground cover. You don’t necessarily have to use these spaces for flowers, either. Add mulch or small rocks to the area, then put in some large stones to create a rock garden. You can also put pots in with a few flowers to get the color they provide while still making it easy to maintain.

Build a Patio/Courtyard

If you don’t have a front patio, you can use pavers to build one. You can create a small landing to give guests more of a space to wait while you answer the door. Depending on how your home is laid out, you could build a larger courtyard or patio for entertaining. While most people do tend to use their backyard for outdoor events since it’s more private, you can have an entertaining space in the front, too.
