    When installing a pea gravel path / patio we will typically edge the area with a brick or belgium block paver and aluminum paver edging. If the client doesn't want the additional stone edge / detail, we will just install aluminum edging to retain the pea gravel.

    'Red Meidiland' roses are planted near the house. The coral bells are paired with red-hot poker (Kniphofia uvaria).

2. Prioritize wealthier neighborhoods. It stands to reason that more affluent homes will contain more valuable items. There are exceptions, of course. Sales held in nicer homes can turn out to be busts, while some modest homes have wonderful things. But if you only have time to hit one or two sales, go for the tonier addresses.

An inviting landscape. Beautiful landscaping can turn a house with good bones into a truly welcoming sight, as it does here, where greenery lines the path, and a layer of red flowers accents the house itself. Your turn: We’d love to see how you’ve improved your home’s exterior. Please take your best shots and include a “before” shot too.

Make the front walk welcoming for all visitors. Chances are, you don’t use the front walk much, and enter through a side or back door from the driveway. Take a test walk and make sure there is nothing slippery or trip inducing. Clip shrubs and flowers so they won’t snag clothes and pull any pesky weeds from between stepping stones or in cracks.

Becky Harris added this to Curb Appeal Feeling a Little Off? Some Questions to ConsiderJun 20, 2013

Is your front path clear and inviting? A clear view and access to the front door are key; you don’t want visitors being snagged by thorns or tripping. Create a walkway from the sidewalk to the front door that will keep your postal carrier happy.

You can have it both ways: complexity where it can be appreciated at the foot of the path and a bold punch of color (in this case red) contrasting a black and white facade. Yet even the elements of the foreground composition are rendered with bold strokes, making them easy to comprehend regardless of the location of the viewer.

Plant red toward the end of a destination, such as a long walkway, where its brilliant color will entice guests down the path.

If adding a walkway at the front is possible, we’d like it to be permeable.
