I’m look­ing to freshen up the ex­te­rior of my prop­erty and give it some kerb ap­peal – do you have any tips to help me out?

Tidy up It’s amaz­ing how much dif­fer­ence clearing clut­ter and de­bris can make. Once it’s all gone, sweep up leaves for a neat fin­ish.

Tackle green­ery Clear weeds, cut and edge lawns and trim any over­hang­ing branches or veg­e­ta­tion to get a smart, cared-for look. Get your flowerbeds un­der con­trol and plant flow­ers in a large pot by the front door.

clean paint­work Wash win­dows and your front door to make them bright and clean. Pol­ish num­bers, knock­ers and let­ter­boxes.

cheer up your door A coat of door paint can trans­form your home. Bright colours such as pil­lar box red are eye-catch­ing, or go black for un­der­stated style.

dis­guise bins Refuse bins are nec­es­sary but ugly. Con­ceal them inside a pretty wooden store, or hide them be­hind a screen. Or, go all out and give them per­son­al­ity with bold stick­ers. Have a look on wheelie-bin-art.co.uk
