Curb Appeal

Before
After

 

Task(s): Minimize the effect of the obstruction of the view of the house. Increase the curb appeal.
Date: 2010
Budget: $5000
Notes:
  • The original curb appeal is not inviting as the view of the house is obstructed by spruce and window awning.
  • We took off the awning to increase the visibility and realized that the huge window was rotten. We had to install a new one and pressure washed the stains on the siding.
  • We dug up and disposed of the cedars around the window. We planted annuals and perennials into the unused flower box.
  • We trimmed the huge spruce to increase the house visibility. To fix the dead grass that we often see around a spruce, we created a flower garden.
