Need help decorating front door/stoop
groovejlMarch 27, 2013
My front stoop is sort of on the side of the house, and I need help sprucing it up as we attempt to sell the house.

I would put a SMALL ornamental tree where the bushes are now with a low growing groundcover. Trellis work on that long blank wall with vines, paint the door red so it will have more prominence, & a small decorative chair under the window, The yard needs some fertilizer & care. So you may want to hire a landscape professional for this'll get back the money in the house sale.

You need to prune the shrubs in front of the window, and add flowering plants to that area plus the bed leading to the front door. The grass looks a little iffy to the right of the walkway, but it's hard to tell from the photo. Please make sure it's in great shape I would add one large (16" at top) pot of flowering plants on the
front porch, back right. There's probably more landscaping that needs freshening on the other side of the house and in the back.

And take the screens off the windows & wash the windows.
If your door handle is brass, switch it out for a new one in Nickel or Oiled Bronze.

From what I can tell by the small photos...a good trimming is needed for the shrubs. Trim first into uniform shapes. Then add fresh mulch or rocks around everything. Put a large flower pot under the window against the house on the porch. Fill with colorful flowers.
