Create Cozy Curb Appeal for Fall | The Home Depot's Garden Club

The change of seasons is a great time to spruce things up, and with autumn upon us, it’s a chance to make your home’s entryway feel warm and cozy.

From temporary harvest décor to more long-term improvements, here are some simple ways to make sure you and your guests feel welcomed.

Curb Appeal for Your Autumn Home:

  1. Start with a clean slate. Tidy up your lawn by mowing, edging and raking leaves. Wash your porch floor and clean windows.
  2. Paint your front door and shutters in autumn-hues such as eggplant, moss green, pumpkin or gold.
  3. Hang a rustic, fall wreath to welcome visitors. Use a wreath hanger to protect your door.
  4. Place a fall-themed doormat by your entrance. Consider one with your family’s surname, a leaf pattern or in an autumn color.
  5. Add colorful fall flowers such as mums, pansies, croton, ornamental cabbage, and kale in pots, hanging baskets, window boxes, and garden beds. Consult a Garden Center associate to pick the best plants for your area.
  6. Create a seasonal display with bales of hay, corn stalks, pumpkins, gourds, potted mums and stems of leaves and berries.
  7. Imitate Mother Nature by freshening up garden beds with mulch. Just as trees naturally drop their leaves in a mulching cover on the ground, you can protect plants, too. Learn more about the benefits of mulching in the garden and landscape.
