#2 Make it Look Like New with Pressure Washing

I cannot overstate the visual effect pressure washing a driveway can have on the exterior aesthetics of a home. You can buy a decent pressure washer for under $200 or rent one from a local home improvement store for even less. Couple it with a surface cleaner attachment and within a couple of hours, a driveway can look almost brand new. It’s our most inexpensive weapon for dramatically increasing the curb appeal of a home’s exterior – especially on older homes.

#3 Elevate Your Driveway Design With Good Lighting

Usually, a driveway is just a bleak area of your outdoor space that you can't get rid of due to its functionality. But it doesn't always have to be this way. You can easily make your driveway a standout area of your yard, all you need is some lights. Install solar lights (nowadays ones with unique designs can be bought in virtually any home improvement store) along the driveway to illuminate it and you will automatically make it aesthetically pleasing. While also helping yourself and your guests out by having a well-lit driveway.
