6 Tips for Using Flowers to Boost Curb Appeal?

Unleash some flower power to increase your home’s curb appeal. There’s a method to leveraging all those petals to help your property bloom. Here are some tips for getting started.

Buy a Color Wheel

Spend a few bucks on a color wheel at your local paint or art supply store to help you understand how different colors relate to one another. Choose flowers with colors close to one another on the wheel for a more harmonious scheme, or colors on opposite sides of the wheel for a complementary color theme. To really mix things up, choose three colors that are equidistant from each other on the wheel.

Use color to “enlarge” your yard or garden bed

A monochromatic color scheme can help create a feeling of spaciousness because the eye is not interrupted by other colors. To mix things up, add lighter and darker versions of the same color flowers.
