3) Lace & Light – Wrap plain candle holders in dark lace to line the windowsills with ambiance.



4) Welcoming Wreath – Add a pretty autumnal wreathe to your door (bonus: no need to take it down till Christmas!).



5) Spook-Tentacular – Wave hello to visitors by adding an arm (or eight) to garden planters.


6) Light The Way – Line your walkway with these light-up pumpkins to guide trick-or-treaters to your door.



7) Read The Signs – Add some intrigue with lettered lanterns or a few spooky signs.



8) Rung the Doorbell – A wooden ladder makes for a great way to showcase pumpkins and gourds.



9) Blackened Branches – A few branches, spray painted black and hung above the door or secured in planting pots with foam, make for a stylishly spooky entry way. 



9) Welcome Matte – An outdoor carpet with matte coloured leaves or prints makes for a great way to greet visitors.

Dry stone walls. A low drystone wall is a durable way to showcase your home, adding substance to the front of your home without hiding it from sight. Plant some high shrubs behind it for privacy, and you won’t have to worry too much about flower beds.

Let it shine. Don’t forget the outdoor lighting; while this one is often overlooked, your home can still catch potential buyers’ eye after dusk. It’s also a great added security measure for your family.

Lead the way. A quality path is the cornerstone when it comes to creating curb appeal. Don’t skimp on the pros for this one; a warped stone path can create a tripping hazard, and many headaches down the line.

Add a focal point. Whether it’s a small seating area, a water feature, or a patch of cheery blooms, drawing passersby to your yard with a point of interest will invite them to give the rest of the home an inquisitive look.

It’s not always greener… Grass isn’t always the best way to go, unless you plan  on manicuring your lawn often. A lawn-free front yard can be a good alternative, with tall grasses, shrubs and stonework features giving it low-maintenance visual impact.
