If you’re looking for something simple, you can add flowers to the exterior of the home to give it some life.

If you want to add more life, then you can mix and match some colorful flowers to give it an even more attractive look. When choosing flowers, be sure that you mix and match the size, as this will add some depth to the area. Opt for oversized bushes as well as smaller flowers to add some contrast.


In addition to just adding flowers, you should also consider adding some landscaping to spruce up the outside of your home. Adding flower boxes or putting gravel or mulch around your yard can do a lot to break up your grass. If you truly want to do something unique with your landscaping, you could also remove your grass altogether and just use stone. All of this will help to make the exterior of your home look different than your neighbors’.
