Take a look at the outside of your home. Does it look appealing? Does it look like someone would want to buy your house if you’re selling it? If the answer is no, don’t worry! There are lots of things you can do to increase curb appeal. A new paint job, a new fence, or maybe even fresh landscaping can help with curb appeal. One of the most important things you can do is to dejunk your yard. No one wants to see garbage or a messy yard. Here are a couple ways to dejunk your yard for more curb appeal.
Get Rid of Garbage
This is the first and most obvious one. Get rid of old garbage or soda cans lying around. Don’t get overwhelmed by the amount of work you need to do because then you’ll feel like quitting. Take it one step at a time. Clean up a couple pieces of trash a day. Or just throw away 10 pieces at a time, telling yourself you only need to pick up 10. Keep picking up 10 pieces until all the trash is gone. This is a good way of doing a little at a time until you’re all done.
Haul Away Old Items
You’ve told yourself that you’re going to fix your old car for 5 years now. Well, it’s time to face the music. That car isn’t getting fixed. Get rid of it! There are lots of junk yards that will pay you for the scrap metal of an old car. It may not be much but it’s something. Selling your old car is another option. This way someone can come and haul the car away for you, so it’ll be a little easier. Either way, don’t keep holding onto something that will never get fixed.

Complete Unfinished Projects
Unfinished projects don’t look good in a yard. Broken fences, cracked cement, and broken windows aren’t very appealing. It’s time to finally get those things done. Repair your fence, pour cement, and get new windows. It’ll look so much better! Get rid of everything that has been lying around because you said you’d get it done. Tools lying around waiting for you to get to them doesn’t look good.
Take a Look Around
Look around the yard. What stands out to you? What needs to be fixed? This may be the part where you really need to work. Rip up yellow grass once the old car is gone. Weed all the weeds that have grown where old items stood for years. Make the yard look even by filling in holes and leveling the ground. This will help your yard look much better.
Your yard doesn’t need to be full of junk. It’s time to dejunk your yard for a place where friends and family can gather without having to step around garbage and old, rusty items. Dejunk your yard for more curb appeal and see how much more inviting your house can be.
