8. Do Something Different

Drive around your neighborhood and see what others have done, then do something completely different. If most people have a white picket fence, put up a wrought iron fence or create a low stone wall. Install a beautiful bird bath or a water fixture, and surround it by a small pool of water. Add a few wooden or wrought iron chairs and benches. Those passing by will be intrigued, and if you’re trying to sell your house, you will draw in a bigger crowd.
