Thank you very much to Gill Greenwell for referencing Tom's Yard in her latest article First Impressions for Cotswolds Lifestyle Magazine, The Local Answer.
'Check out Herefordshire-based Tom’s Yard for beautiful Cretan terracotta olive tree pots – they sell olive trees too' with reference to using oversized planters for making a statement around doorways.
Gill's article was talking above methods to spruce up the front of your house. You can find the whole article on an online format here.
However, for some quick bullet points - here are some great ideas Gill mentioned...
Tidy up the paving
The front path is the first thing your visitors will notice. Repair and tidy yours up using specialist cleaning materials
Add a porch
Why not give your home extra character by adding a porch if you don’t already have one? The English Porch Company sells ready-made porch kits in a range of designs to suit every style of home.
Repaint your front door
Repainting your front door is an easy way to smarten up your entrance. It’s amazing what a difference a fresh coat of paint can make and it can add real value to your house. Go for a bold colour to make more impact; I’ve seen one painted in Farrow and Ball’s Pelt, a stunning deep aubergine colour, which has had lots of comments on the internet.
