Elevate Your Curb Appeal: Simple Home Improvement Tips for Every Homeowner
Posted on Feb 26th, 2024

 In the heart of Blackford Oaks, where community pride shines through every well-maintained lawn and welcoming front porch, lies an opportunity for each of us to contribute to our neighborhood’s charm. Enhancing your home’s curb appeal not only boosts the overall ambiance of our community but also increases your property’s value and appeal. Here are some easy yet effective home improvement tips to make your home stand out and shine within our beautiful community.
**1. Refresh Your Front Door:** Your front door is more than just an entryway—it's the focal point of your home's exterior. A fresh coat of paint can work wonders, transforming it into an inviting gateway. Consider bold colors that complement your home's palette, and don't forget to polish or replace hardware for that finishing touch.
**2. Landscape with Local Flora:** Landscaping is a powerful tool for boosting curb appeal. Incorporate native plants, which are not only beautiful but also adapted to our climate and less demanding in terms of water and care. Adding mulch to garden beds can instantly refresh the area around your home and help plants stand out.
**3. Update Outdoor Lighting:** Good lighting can elevate the look of your home and garden, making it feel warm and welcoming even after sunset. Solar-powered lights along the walkway, spotlighting for trees or architectural features, and a well-lit porch can enhance security and aesthetics.
**4. Maintain Your Lawn and Garden:** A well-kept lawn is a key component of curb appeal. Regular mowing, edging, and weeding show that you care about your home and the community. Consider adding perennial borders or a small vegetable garden to bring life and personality to your yard.
**5. Power Wash the Exterior:** Over time, dirt and grime can dull your home's exterior. A thorough power washing of siding, walkways, and driveways can rejuvenate your property’s appearance, making it look new and well-maintained.
**6. Upgrade Your Mailbox:** An often-overlooked detail, your mailbox can say a lot about your home. Upgrading to a new mailbox or giving your existing one a makeover to match your home’s style can add a charming touch to your curb appeal.
**7. Add Window Boxes or Planters:** Window boxes filled with colorful flowers or greenery can add a lively pop of color and charm to your home's exterior. If you have a porch, adding a few well-placed planters with seasonal plants can also enhance your home’s welcoming vibe.
**8. Repair or Replace Your Roof:** While more of an investment, a damaged or aging roof can detract from your home’s overall appearance and value. Inspect your roof regularly and address any issues promptly. If it's time for a replacement, consider new roofing materials that complement your home's architecture and color scheme.
Implementing these simple improvements can make a significant difference in how your home looks and feels from the outside. Not only will you be contributing to the beauty of Blackford Oaks, but you'll also be creating a space that welcomes you home every day with open arms. Let's work together to keep our community looking its best, one home at a time.

Ball Homes Apartment development
Posted on Nov 4th, 2019
The Lexington City Council voted 15-0 on October 29th to allow the Ball Homes proposed zone change, and as a result of the vote the planned apartment complex can now be built by Ball Homes. Just a few days before the Council vote, the Association was able to work out a compromise with Ball Homes that would benefit the neighborhood.  The link below provides the details of the compromise agreement.
