Weston Dean has been a highly sought after Boerne custom home builder in San Antonio’s popular Monteola community.  As with many of these, home buyers have the opportunity and the privilege of not only being intimately involved with the customization of their dream home, including features and other prized amenities to fit your personal lifestyle, but also to personally select the lot upon which your home will reside.  Within this private, gated community of Monteola, every single lot is no smaller than 5 acres of land that will belong wholly to you and your family.  Even better, while each custom home from Weston Dean is priced starting at the $550,000s, property taxes here are actually a third less than they are within the city limits of San Antonio.

Throughout Monteola you’ll find every bit of security you could want to ensure the safety of your family, such as video surveillance, guardhouse, and sculptured street markers beyond each entrance gate.  There are premier golf courses for the avid, expert, or beginning golfer.  Of course, each resident is within minutes of San Antonio itself, known for its fine dining, high quality entertainment, and countless shopping and retail options.  Your access to downtown San Antonio is quick and easy for pleasure or work, and you’ll love just how smooth a commute it is.  Additionally the Medical Center is accessible and convenient for all your health needs.

All families with students enrolled in the independent public school district of Comal County will find a home-away-from-home at Bulverde Elementary, Spring Branch Middle, and Smithson Valley High Schools, offering educational excellence and plenty of recreational activities for every interest under the Texas sun.

Weston Dean has mastered plenty of contemporary architecture styles, elegant and perfectly fitted to match the area’s natural beauty in its landscape.  Luxury, personal touch, leisure, and nothing short of perfect – we can definitely make that dream home of yours happen!

Since we’re pretty sure you’ll want to see this community firsthand, here’s how to get there.  If you’re going to be driving along US 281 and 1604, be sure to head north for about 9 miles on 281, and take the FM 1863 exit.  Turn left (West) beneath the highway toward Bulverde.  Continue on 1863 and make another lefthand turn ont East Ammann Road.  The entrance to Monteola will be on your right just before you reach Blanco Road.

However, if you’re already at Blanco and 1604, head north on Blanco Road and drive for roughly 11 miles to reach East Ammann Road.  Make that righthand turn and Monteola’s entrance is on your left.

And with that: You have arrived!

Be sure to take time out this weekend to come and see for yourself why Monteola might be the place you want to call home!

Get Started on Your Spring Garden

Categories: Uncategorized | Posted: March 7, 2019

Weston Dean Custom Homes, a premier Boerne custom homebuilder, understand that you probably have a little cabin fever and ready to get outside and enjoy the weather.  (That’s not to say some of you haven’t already been doing so!)  That being said, it still might be a little cool, cloudy, or rainy in the coming days, and indoor spring cleaning can only be so engaging.  But on the days where it’s a little nicer out and you can’t quite escape the desire to be outside, take advantage of these early weeks of spring and get your garden ready to start growing!

“But wait!” You might say, “I’m not really a gardener and I don’t know the first thing about growing anything.”  Well, the good news is that most maintenance tasks you can perform now definitely prime your yard for springtime growth, and you don’t need to know anything specific at this time.  But this early set up will afford you the chance to take up a new hobby and make your yard absolutely beautiful in the coming months.

So what do you do to get started?  Our friends at HGTV recommend a fair number of activities that get you started.  Even better, these ideas are great for a family to do together as well as getting you active and moving (don’t make us remind you of your fitness-related New Years Resolution!).

Have you used mulch in previous years?  Mulching is a great way to add moisture and nutrients to the soil and the plants you want to cultivate as well as smother the weeds and unwanted lawn creepers.  Check the depth of your mulch as it has likely decomposed some or been washed away over the winter months.  Replenish your supply and use a rake to spread it around your garden and general landscape approximately 2-4 inches high.

Does your yard have stepping stones used for navigating outdoor traffic as well as adding to the general aesthetic?  We recommend that you check on these.  Sometimes with extreme temperatures,  they can become worn and weathered, making them unstable and precarious to walk upon.  Work those muscles to lift them from the ground and use a level if you need to to determine whether or not they are even.

Check your yard to ensure there aren’t potholes or tunnels that have been dug by critters.  Not only are they counterproductive to any planting aims you have, but they’re rather dangerous; you might step into one and twist your ankle.  Fill in these holes with dirt and soil and make sure they’re firmly patted down to prevent any accidents.  You’ll be able to add seed and grass turf to these bare patches in the coming weeks.

What are your plans for your garden this year?  Are you planting any fruits or vegetables, or are you sticking to flora and fauna?
