Craig Ranch McKinney, Texas

Spring has officially sprung at Craig Ranch! Now that winter has passed, you need to prep your home for the new, warm weather. Don’t worry though, we’re here to help guide you through the process.

Here are a few tips to help get your home spring-ready:

Exterior maintenance – If any part of your home took a beating during the winter, now is the time to fix it up! Be sure to survey the exterior of your home, scanning for damaged areas, especially seals around windows and doors. It’s also a good idea to check your roof and to remove blockages in your gutters, often caused by leaves or other debris. Remember, any major changes to the exterior of your home must be pre-approved by Craig Ranch Community Association. Completed applications can be submitted online at, faxed, emailed or dropped off at the CRCA office.

Landscaping – Give your landscape a little love after the long winter months. One of the best parts of spring is beautiful, bright colored flowers. Before you plant your fresh landscape, check out this list of seasonal spring flowers. Once you spruce up your flowerbeds and give your grass a good cut, your yard will be ready for the new season!

Interior fix-ups – Don’t let the idea of spring cleaning scare you! Once it’s done, you’ll love the fresh, clean feel of your home. Take the time to clean out closets and de-clutter your home. It’s also a good idea to clean your ceiling fans, windows and fireplace, too. Don’t forget to have your air-conditioner serviced before the extreme summer temperatures arrive. If you’re in the mood to redecorate, consider adding a few bright accents to your home to liven the decor for Spring. After you’ve finished interior maintenance, you can bask in the new look and refreshing feel of your spring-ready home.

Take this opportunity to transform your home into a spring masterpiece. With a renovated exterior, a bright landscape and a clean interior, your Craig Ranch home will look and feel like new!
