Springs are amazing in Texas: The weather warms up a little, patios begin to fill in and we all start thinking about pool season and summer vacations.

But the spring also means it’s time for spring cleaning. While no one enjoys cleaning, doing certain things around your house in the spring can protect your home — and your wallet — for years to come.

I have seen the return on my home and homes I have sold by doing just a few simple things that keep your house updated and looking beautiful.

Check out these 5 tips from my friends at Check Out DFW to do around your home and garden. Your summer self will thank you.   

1. Spring cleaning

Spring cleaning is a necessity in Texas thanks to this season’s new blooms of allergen-inducing particles.

2. Clean and insulate your home’s exterior 

We all remember the old childhood rhyme, “spring showers.” Springtime absolutely brings lots of rain and other weather surprises.

3. A/C maintenance and inspection 

No air conditioning during a Texas summer is the worst. Some of us have unfortunately undergone it, and nothing will motivate you more to take care of your home’s air conditioning unit.

4. Lawn Care

Springtime is a suitable time to fertilize and treat your lawn. This is a simple and affordable process that can save you a lot of expense and time in the summer. For a helpful guide on current lawn fertilizers and what they offer, check out this site

5. Planting/Gardening

While it does depend on your zone area (you can look it up here), many Texans plant spring gardens and do landscaping work in April, after Easter. Weather patterns are such that most of Texas is free from fear of freezing or deadly frost by then.
