Check out these simple steps to grab some curb appeal before the summer heat approaches.
Green grass is the first approach to curb appeal. Now is the time to lay down some Weed And Feed (please make sure you use the one specific to your grade of grass) and water at least twice a week (if restrictions allow).
Cut your grass using a high setting on your lawn mower so that the length of the grass keeps the soil moist longer.
Edging grass is a task that I myself have not mastered but I love to see perfectly high edged grass. Your local hardware store has many tools to help aide us in getting that perfect line.
A Pop Of Color: Times Two Please
It was so nice stopping by one of my client's homes last week and noticing her new pops of color. She chose purple and white hanger baskets and placed them in large containers outside of her front door. Purple and white represent her son’s decision on attending TCU and that was her personal touch on her curb appeal. How nice is that? Her home looks beautiful from the outside to others, but at the same time when she sees the colors she smiles knowing that there is a personal reason she chose those flowers to brighten her doorway!
If you want to keep your watering costs down and don’t have time to water flowers in planters everyday, try choosing planter containers that are bold in color. Then add a green plant or even a cactus that needs less water than the dog and your pops of color should be good until next summer!
