I’m so excited to announce that Spring has officially sprung—at least here in Texas! The weather is perfect, the sun is shining and I (very, very happily) have put away all my winter clothing.
There’s something this season that brings a fresh feeling of renewal and new beginnings to me, even more than the New Year. Each Spring, we not only tackle spring cleaning, but we also get really serious about taking care of our yard. This is the first year in several that we are adding curb appeal to our home for our own enjoyment, rather than trying to sell a home. I know there are lots of people out there who want to add curb appeal themselves (for selling or staying!) and I thought it would be fun for Scott and I to share our tips for making the front of your home look extra snazzy.
Great curb appeal always starts with great grass. After all, a lawn full of dead grass will deter people much more than a lush, beautiful green yard. We’ve always been fans of Scotts® lawn products to keep our yard fresh, but this is the first year we’ve had to deal with any weeds (boo!).
We opted to use Scotts® Turf Builder® Weed & Feed to help kill weeds—we picked it up at Walmart in the gardening section—it comes in a fun yellow bag that’s hard to miss! This product will cover up to 5,000 square feet and helps you rid your lawn of the weeds you see and thicken your grass to crowd out the ones you don’t.
If you have a corner lot like we do, make sure you take care of your side yard as well. Manicured bushes and green grass will make your home look gorgeous from all sides. It’s also a great opportunity to add some fresh flowers and mulch to make your yard really pop.
Curb appeal doesn’t stop at the lawn itself. Freshly painted shutters and a fun front door color can make your home stand out and look inviting. At our last two houses we went with a mint-colored door, but this one has a pretty teal one (for now!).
You guys know I’m a huge wreath fan, so I highly recommend having a pretty wreath on your door. You can DIY this one in under 10 minutes (check out the tutorial here), or even pick up one at a craft store that’s pre-made.
If you are lucky enough to have a front porch (even a tiny one like ours!) make the most of it with a seating area. We love sitting on our front porch, having a drink and people watching. I like to swap out the pillows on the bench to keep it interesting.
