Before and After: Our House Gets a Little Curb Appeal

Since we moved into our house about a year and two months ago we’ve been doing tons of projects. One of the biggies was working on our home’s curb appeal. We took out a bunch of ugly bushes both in the front and back. We planted lots of new shrubs and flowers. And last spring we sodded the yard ourselves (not something I recommend after going through it). Earlier this month we also got a little help from one of our good friends, JJ. He recently started his own pressure washing company, Hydro-Shine and pressure washed our front walkway and our driveway. I highly recommend Hydro-Shine for your pressure washing needs! Just take a look at our before and after photos:
