How to add curb appeal for brick duplex?

Barb  Balto MdNaomie Moore aka baileyanddaisey, Castaic CADee


I always see curb appeal pictures for single homes in all the show on DIY and HGTV. I always get get comments on how good my yard yard and house looks now. I can’t plant trees in my front because of sewage, water and gas lines. I usually decorate with pots and lights. The picture below give you an idea of how I decorate for the seasons. I don’t like planting anything around porch because it draws ants. The last picture is my yard today. I’m still in decorating mode. I’ve been looking for ideas that don’t cost a lot

    You could plant trees or shrubs in very large pots.

    Thanks for all your praise and comments. It’s been raining here some much. I’m not done putting everything out. I have things for my porch that I made. Plus the Ixora bushes in the pots are going to get pretty big I hope. It my first time with them. In Md I have to wait until after Mother’s Day because of our crazy weather. I love being outside from spring to fall in my back yard where we’ve been busy laving 90 paving, tilling yard, leveling and then sodding. It will be done in about a week. Then sit back and relax. Really bless because I have this great brother that does all this for me. But you no you never take advantage of people. I treat him just like a contractor because his time is very valuable to me. He also finished my basement and did an outstanding job. If your interested in ideas I can sent you photos. And no He’s not for hire I don’t think. Thanks Hometalkers
