Yes…Even Today Good Fences Still Make Good Neighbors.

A fence is not only good because it increases the privacy and security of your Houston area home, but to make it more appealing from the curbside. Obviously, it also keeps your pets inside your property. Pick the absolute best style for your home, and maybe double-check that you’re doing things the right way, as well as the legal way.

Here are some tips to fence-building –

1.  Be certain of what you want before you even think about beginning the project.

2.  Each fence type brings certain maintenance responsibilities.

3.  Let your neighbors know about your plan…they will be affected too.

4.  Choose a fence installation professional to do the job.

That is where we come in. We are proud to be Katy’s best landscaper…again. Our name is Laird Landscaping. We are a family-owned business serving the Houston area’s needs for decades. Here at Laird we not only build strong, reliable fences, but much more. Visit our website at Please give us a call at (281) 578-2795.

How Do you Look from Out Front?

It is a question we may have asked of ourselves many times. When it pertains to the front yard of your property try to step back and see it as if you were standing in front of your Houston area home instead of inside. Here is an idea…walk down the street, then turn back. Do the same in the other direction. Are you pleased with what you see?

Here are some questions you may ask yourself –

1.  Does your house blend into the neighborhood?

2.  How distinctive does it look from the street?

3.  Does it need stronger horizontal and vertical lines?

4.  Are you making notes of your hopes and dreams?

Then call us Laird Landscaping and design the dream scenario for your castle in Katy or around the Houston Metro. Here at Laird Landscaping we will make your property landscape design dreams come true. See some of our eye-popping work on the web at How about giving us a call at (281) 578-2795.

It is Not too “Hard” to Explain.

Hardscaping contains the non-living elements of landscaping. Hardscape falls into one of the two subcategories of landscaping. The other category is known as softscaping. What items are typically involved in this category? Hardscaping materials that are commonly used include concrete, brick, stone, wood, and metal…makes sense, doesn’t it?

There are many ways hardscape can be used to enhance the other objects on your property. Stone retaining walls create planting areas, concrete patios, and brick patios to offer a more upscale look. Flagstone patios are low cost options for natural stone outdoor flooring providing shade, and pergolas that are arbor-like structures attached to the house or other buildings.

Hardscaping, softscaping, or the term we all know landscaping are all specialties of Laird Landscaping of Katy, Texas. Laird serves the landscaping design and application needs of the greater Houston area, and has done so for decades. Turn your landscaping dreams into reality.

We are not Just Top Designers, but Really Good at Maintenance as Well.

We hope that you will think of us first when you want to design the landscaping for your home or business. What about keeping the exterior of your property beautiful for all that pass by? Well, we think we are pretty darn good at that as well! What about the issue of keeping your trees and bushes neatly trimmed and pruned?

If you are trimming heavy tree limbs, you have to be extra careful not to damage the bark or interfere with the tree’s natural healing response. Doing it right does not have to be any more difficult than doing it wrong, particularly if you think ahead to how much work it would take to remove a dead tree!

Here at Laird Landscaping, voted Katy’s best landscape firm, we also specialize in the continued aesthetics of your Houston area property. Sure, we are much more than tree and shrubbery maintenance, but when it comes to those things please think of us to do the job professionally. We are Laird Landscaping of Katy Texas.

Come Out, Come Out, Wherever You Are.

Hey Houston! Are you ready to spread your wings again? We would like to help you have more fun this year and for many years to come on your own property. Why not consider creating a beautiful new patio in your backyard? It should mean more than just setting out a few chairs and hoping for the best.

Transforming your dull, neglected backyard into a lovely destination often means taking on some heavy lifting. This could mean spreading out gravel and sand first as a base, then laying a broad range of stone pavers. Perhaps we may add a glowing string of lights to soften your home's brick siding and add to the crisp, clean look.

We have been making Houston and Katy area homeowner’s dreams come true for decades. Today, it may be more important than ever! Please give us a call and let’s begin making your backyard THE entertainment mecca of your dreams. Call Laird Landscaping voted Katy’s best landscaper today at (281) 578-2795.
