Curbside decor

I was wanting to redo my landscaping and bring some new curb side appeal to my house. The first thought is to redo the vast flower beds that surround my home. I currently have some gorgeous lantana plants as well as an array of black-eyed susans. I do love to garden but also love to have other little lawn ornaments that accentuate the flowers. I purchased some gorgeous solar lights that have an old lantern feel to them. I also got an adorable solar lighted frog. It is really adorable and is sitting on a rock. These small changes really do bring a lot to the presence of my house. I scanned the rest of the street to see what else I could do to make my home stand out. I noticed a vast difference in mailboxes. They really brought a different feel to each house from the more standard to cute custom designs that matched the houses paint scheme. The mailbox I currently have did not really do much for my house just the standard old metal type with no special colors or design. I started looking online and was very surprised to see that there are over 2500 different designs available! I searched through the listing for Residential Mailboxes and found the most adorable design. A blink shadowbox Fleur di Lis wall mailbox is what my eye rested on. I am very excited to receive it an add it to the new design and add to my curbside appeal. You do not have to spend a fortune to give your home a make over for either you or if you are planning to put it up on the market. Research shows homes with a bright, welcoming feel remain on the market for a shorter period of time then homes that are boring and not welcoming.
