8 Tips for Adding Curb Appeal and Value to Your Home Here are eight ways to help your home put its best face forward. Next: Tip #1: Wash your house's face Tip #1: Wash your house's face Before you scrape any paint or plant more azaleas, wash the dirt, mildew, and general grunge off the outside of your house. REALTORS® say washing a house can add $10,000 to $15,000 to the sale prices of some houses. A bucket of soapy water and a long-handled, soft-bristled brush can remove the dust and dirt that have splashed onto your wood, vinyl, metal, stucco, brick, and fiber cement siding. Power washers (rental: $75 per day) can reveal the true color of your flagstone walkways.Wash your windows inside and out, swipe cobwebs from eaves, and hose down downspouts. Don't forget your garage door, which ...

Coping With The Unspeakable. My husband and I love music of all kinds.  We love to sing and we play several instruments (some less well than others.)  There is something about music that charms us, soothes us, inspires us.  And we find ourselves constantly circling around music. Some years ago, when my husband was learning to play the bagpipe, we acquired a taste for Scottish and Irish things. One day, while doing a little research trying to find authentic Irish and Scottish music, we came across an interesting cassette tape (anyone remember THAT technology?  It followed 8-tracks).  The cassette we found was of immediate interest to us.  It was quite charming in its earnestness, and its particularly quaint folk style.  That CD was by the Grehan Sisters.   We were instantly charmed.   In...

The Wearing of The Green, and the Living Out the Green – a tale by GreenECO Builders and its homebuyer club, GreenSTART Home Club. (Katy, Cypress, Spring, Houston, Dickinson, Rosenberg, Bacliff, Texas)   "The Wearing of the Green" is Irish street ballad dating back to the repression around the time of the Irish Rebellion (1798).   Wearing a shamrock  on your hat was a sign of rebellion and green was the colour of the Society of the United Irishmen (a revolutionary organization).       Well, that has ZERO to do with being a green builder, but we thought you might enjoy the song.   Enjoy the tune, while you read about the green features on new homes by GreenECO Builders.   They have nothing to do with each other – but the color “green.”  Don’t try to make it into a morality story or a cau...

I have always attributed the signs of spring to foliage.  The foliage depends on what area of the country we are living in.  In Colorado I was just just glad to see green. In North Carolina it was all those pretty spring flowers. Growing up in Kansas it was seeing daffodils come peeking through the winter landscape. I now have a new compass to go by and it is the Bradford Pear trees in the middle of our cul-de-sac. When they start getting those beautiful white blooms I know that Spring in Spring TX is right around the corner. I must admit I do miss those daffodils but here in Spring TX our land is too warm and the only way you can have daffodils is to plant them every year. (Since that does not happen I rarely get to see daffodils except at the grocery store or in pictures.) I love Spri...

Like the rest of the country we are experiencing freezing temperatures in Spring TX.  I was opening a home for a buyer to take some measurements this afternoon and drove by this fountain on the way to the home. This is Spring TX we are not supposed to be having freezing temperatures.  My client is moving here from Alaska and she was telling me how cold she thought it was.  That made me feel better as having moved here from Colorado I was thinking I had become a wimp. Our cold is a wet cold that gets you to the bone. I have a new Sanyo dual camera and I thought I took lots of pictures and just one video.  For whatever reason the pictures did not turn out but the video did.  It is a short video and a bit choppy but it does give you the feel of the icicle fountain. ________________________...

Crape Myrtle murder has started early in Spring-Tomball-Magnolia TX this year. I have been driving around watching the landscapers out pruning for the last few weeks. The sad thing is that there’s absolutely no reason to scalp murder a tree the way they do. I expect many of you have heard the story of Grandma’s roast. It seems Grandma cut the end of the roast off, so Mom cut the end of her roast off and so on. Finally someone got around to asking Grandma why she cut the roast off and her answer was so it could fit in the pan. To me that’s a good analogy of the crape myrtle murder that goes on in our area. From everything I have read and actual experience I cannot see that it does any good to the Crape Myrtle tree. I made the small video above showing exactly what I’m talking about. We ...

Last year the Houston Chronicle had a great article about plant survival in freezing temperatures. Since it is almost February I was thinking I was going to get away without having to post about this but it is not to be; we are looking to have several days of frigid temperatures starting today (lows in the low to mid 20's).  Here in Houston we rarely have frigid temperatures and for sure not several days in a row.  I love all the tropical plants that I'm able to grow in Spring and by using what they said I saved my plants last year and plan to again this year.  This year I also have a winter garden going and I sure don't want to lose my lettuce.After reading the article I realized that I've not been going at this correctly. What you want to do is mulch, water and cover. If it has not ra...
