Winter Curb Appeal for Decatur Homes

Winter climate in the Atlanta area is generally mild - at least milder than in many other parts of the country.  Temperatures do dip lower, trees lose their leaves, and shorts are no longer popular apparel.  

There may not be snow in the backyard, but cold days and nights are interspersed with incredible sunny days when you could enjoy a picnic on the deck, and many days when curling near the fire or the heat register is an appealing option.

This is a time when most homeowners in Decatur focus on a cozy interior, rather than the bleak exterior landscape.  With a little creativity, however, it is possible to enhance the exterior of your home and enjoy outside activities on those beautiful days:

Once the leaves are raked, consider decorating outside your home for the cooler months.

  • ​Make your front door a focal point with a colorful wreath, incorporate large planters filled with evergreens and berries.
  •  Add exterior fairy lights on trees or try spotlights on architectural features
  • Keep your furniture on the deck for sunny day picnics
  •  Maintain your lawn and remove twigs and fallen debris regularly

You may be lucky enough to enjoy a sparkling 70 degree day in January or February.  Welcome to Decatur winter weather!
