As a Lowe’s Creative Blogger, this month’s challenge is beautifying curb appeal on a budget! I’m all for budget projects and can think of a million different ways to spruce up the curb appeal. The catch is that I can think of a million different ways to beautify curb appeal for “normal” houses…or should I say, houses in just about any part of the country except the southwest. You see, in most of the country, there are these beautiful and adorable houses like this:
They have color and flowers and front porches/steps/stoops and shutters and…grass! Are these what houses & front yards can look like in your area? Not mine! In the Arizona deserts, a huge majority of houses are neutral-colored stucco with gravel “desert landscaping” (including ours). Here’s a little sampling from our neighborhood:
A bit different from the first set of photos, huh?! There’s not a lot of color and with the hot summer sun, we don’t have quite the number of May flower options. So, our desert curb appeal is a bit different here! You’ll have to stay tuned to see what we come up with. In the meantime though, Lowe’s would like to help one of you beautify your curb appeal!!
