Planning on having friends and family over for a 4th of July cookout this Thursday? Want to have family and friends talking about your yard?

Then, follow these tips to get a yard that will truly make family and friends envious…

The Basics

Make sure your lawn is mowed, the weeds are pulled and any junk in your yard has been removed. For large junk such as appliances or if you have lots of junk, consider calling your local Austin junk removal company to haul it away.

The Entryway

Your front entryway is the focal point of your home. Since everyone will be looking at it, you’ll want it to look good! Hang a patriotic wreath on the door for your party. Buy a new welcome mat if yours is dirty. Place some potted plants on the porch. There are dozens of ways you can spice up your front door. Check out this blog post for more ideas.

The Mailbox

The mailbox is often overlooked when it comes to decorating, but a well-decorated mailbox can do wonders for the visual appeal of your home. The best part of decorating your mailbox? It literally takes 15 minutes to plant a few flowers around the base. 15 minutes to a more beautiful home? Count us in!

And since it’s the 4th of July, you could even put up a flag pole next to your mailbox!

The Trees & Bushes

Before your guests arrive, make sure you’ve trimmed all your trees and bushes into the right shape. Remove all yard waste such as grass clippings and tree branches from your yard. The Austin junk removal company you called to remove your old junk should be able to remove your yard waste in the same trip.

The Porch & Deck

Before your party, make sure your porch and deck look good. If they’re really dirty, you might need to rent a power washer and give them a through washing. If they look pretty good, just sweep them and maybe, place a couple of potted plants on them. If you want to get really creative, you could place a few pots of red, white and blue petunias around!

The Garden Décor

We love garden décor just as much as the next person, but you can definitely have too much of a good thing. For the best visual appeal, keep garden décor to a minimum. Also, consider adding some outdoor lighting to your garden. This way your friends and family can enjoy your flowers all night long!
