1. Give Your Landscape a New Look

Landscaping is one of the easiest ways to boost your curb appeal, and it’s said to generate one of the biggest returns on your money. Landscaping is more than just pretty flowers — it’s a useful way to help prevent potentially expensive damage like mold or fallen tree limbs. You can install curbing for a little over $1,000 — or re-do the whole front lawn for roughly $3,300.

2. Redo the Driveway the Right Way

If your driveway is looking a little lackluster, file this under one repair worth budgeting for. In addition to being a huge factor in your home’s curb appeal, the driveway serves a major purpose — protecting their vehicle. Depending on how much of an overhaul your pavement needs, you’ll be spending around $1,500 for a patch and repair, and up to $4,000 for a brand new one.
