Painted Features

Painting your front door, shutters, and window boxes in a vibrant shade will add a pop of color to the front of your home. Painting various features of your home the same color will provide a unifying look while simultaneously enhancing its eye-catching appeal. If your home is a neutral shade, consider painting your door and shutters a contrasting hue like red, emerald green, or even blue. We can paint these features for you over a day or two.


Improve the vertical space of your setting by adding hanging plants to your porch. You can also install a few trellises around your setting to support climbing vines and flowering plants. Plants, when properly maintained, can dramatically enhance the look of your setting. You should also take care to keep your shrubs and trees well groomed or your landscape is apt to appear unkempt.

Porch Lights
