Would you like the kind of home that’s tailor-made for showing off to the neighbors, sharing with guests, and impressing your in-laws? Follow these 3 easy steps to boost your home's curb appeal.

Beautiful home with a wide expanse of green lawn

It is so satisfying to drive up a clean driveway to a bright, sparkling house surrounded by green, lush grass and neatly mulched flower beds – in other words, a house with true curb appeal. That’s just the kind of home that’s tailor-made for showing off to the neighbors, sharing with guests, and impressing your in-laws. But don’t worry if your own home is in need of a little TLC. Here are 3 easy steps to boost curb appeal in very little time:

Green Up the Lawn

During the growing season, your lawn can use up the nutrients in the soil faster than they’re replaced, leaving grass looking faded instead of vibrant. Here’s the simple solution: Feed it with Scotts® Green Max™ Lawn Food every 6 to 8 weeks during the growing season, following label directions. Just 3 days after applying, you’ll notice your lawn has a deeper, richer color. The secret? This lawn food contains extra iron, an essential micro-nutrient that enhances the greening process so you see results fast. In addition to the lush look, feeding with Scotts® Green Max™ Lawn Food gives your lawn the other nutrients it needs to help grow a deep, robust root system to better withstand heat and drought.

Give New Life to Old Mulch

Mulch can add a fresh, vibrant look to your landscape beds, especially when you use a richly-hued one like Scotts® Nature Scapes® Color Enhanced Mulch. With time, though, even the best mulch breaks down and loses its color. Fortunately, there’s an easy way to refresh it. Simply spray existing mulch with Scotts® Mulch Color Renewal (which comes in black, brown, and red) according to the instructions on the label. When used as directed, it’s safe for use around people, pets, and plants, but avoid driveways, patios, and other hard surfaces to prevent staining. Once you apply it, your beds will look newly mulched – without all the work.

Clean Sidewalks, Driveways, and More

Now that you’ve beautified your lawn and landscape, it’s time to spiff up the driveway, front porch, back patio, and walkways. It's easy to get rid of dirt and stains from moss, mold, mildew, and algae from outdoor surfaces with Scotts® Outdoor Cleaner Patio & Deck with ZeroScrub™ Technology Concentrate or Scotts® Outdoor Cleaner Plus OxiClean™ Ready-to-Spray. And, don't forget about the exterior or your home; use Scotts® Outdoor Cleaner House & Siding with ZeroScrub™ Technology Ready-to-Spray to clean vinyl, stucco, brick, and other surfaces. For quick touch-ups, try Scotts® Outdoor Cleaner Plus OxiClean™ Heavy Duty Wipes.

These 3 simple solutions are all you need to turn the look of your outdoor space from drab to fab, giving you the curb appeal that will be the envy of all your neighbors. What are you waiting for?
