Simple Ways to Boost Your Curb Appeal This Spring

Spring is officially here, and many homeowners across the U.S. are heading out into their yards to boost their curb appeal by sprucing up their gardens and getting weeds under control. About 50% of homeowners who upgrade their outdoor spaces spend six or more hours there per week.

Fortunately, it’s not too hard to create an outdoor space you love to spend time in yourself. Here are a few simple ways you can give your home some instant curb appeal.

Know how much to water your lawn

Nothing says curb appeal quite like a lush, green lawn. But many homeowners mistakenly water their lawns too much or too little. With the dry season coming up, it’s important to know how frequently to water your lawn and when to do it.

You’ll want to water in the early morning between midnight and 8 AM. Don’t water frequently, but water deeply. Many lawns in North Texas require one to 1.25 inches of water a week over a period of two or more days.

Use organic soil

A healthy yard starts from the ground up. When your soil is healthy, your plants are healthy. Organic, native soil is key to achieving better results from your lawn and garden. Organic soil is made up of naturally occurring nutrients, beneficial bacteria, fungi, and nematodes that can keep your yard happy throughout the year. Earthworms and other organisms can also help to keep your soil happy and healthy throughout the year to boost the growth of your plants.

Control weeds

An organic weed control service can not only get rid of the weeds from your lawn but they can also use the weeds as a way to determine the overall health of your soil. Different weeds have different soil type requirements, which can help your organic weed control service figure out what mineral deficiencies or excesses your yard has. They can then help you improve the overall health of your soil so you can have fewer weeds growing in your garden.
