Springtime Curb Appeal Projects to Add Texas Hill Country Charm to Your Yard
Flowers Along the Fence Line

A prime place to dress up your property, the fence line may already have some dirt that’s been disturbed and won’t require too much in the way of additional soil or fertilizer (ahem…cows). Your choice of flower may vary, of course, but the look of it is definitely quaint and country.
Making Use of What You Have

If you have some old implements in your shed or barn, the garden, yard, or entryway to your property is a fine place to put them. Get some rust paint in the colors you like (or try to match its original color), add some decorative grasses, mulch, and flowers, and you have a tiny piece of Texas Hill Country charm right there.
Make Use of What You Can’t Get Rid Of

Instead of considering that giant rock or stump you can’t get rid of an eyesore, why not make it work for your yard by glamming it up some? Perennials that offer blooming appeal, tall grasses that complement the object’s height or size, and even a sign with your family name, are some great ways to gussie it up. Your neighbors might even wonder how they could get their hands on their own rock or stump when you’re done!
