Transitioning from Summer to Winter.

It is a bit early to be thinking of this (especially in the Houston area), but we wanted to give you a head’s up on your landscaping as summer draws to a close next month.  No matter where you live, there will be a change in temperature soon.  Thankfully, we will not have the same drastic change of seasons as our northern neighbors.

Here are some things you can do in the next month or so –

1.  Fall is a great time to plant perennials.
2.  Add trees and shrubs with the help of a pro.
3.  Fertilize the lawn.
4.  Have a professional landscape company on speed dial!

That last one may not be necessary, but what we want you to remember is that when you plan changes to your property’s landscaping call on us before you proceed.  We are Katy and Houston’s premier landscape company Laird Landscaping.  You can look it up.  We were voted Katy’s best landscaper.  Call us for a professional approach at (281) 578-2795.

Wave the Flag.

That’s always a good idea.  In this case we are referring to flagstone.  For the uninitiated, flagstone is known to be an easy material to work with due to the flat, thin nature that comes from the splitting layers of sedimentary stone.  The large, flat stones are used in a variety of landscaping projects. 

So, what’s your project?  Is it a patio, path, walkway, seating area, or maybe walls?  They are available in several different colors, shapes, and thicknesses.  The color palette for flagstone varies from red, pink, orange, brown, blue, gold and even white.  It probably should be at least one inch thick to stand up to heavy traffic.

These are all things that you may or may not know, but I guarantee you we do!  We are Laird Landscaping Katy’s and Houston’s premier landscaping company.  We are proud to have served this community through thick and thin for decades.  Please give us a call to discuss flagstone or any other landscaping idea at (281) 578-2795.

Turn Down the Heat.

Shading and evapotranspiration from trees can reduce surrounding air temperatures as much as 6° F.  Did you know that?  Better yet, did you have any idea what evapotranspiration is?  An explanation of this 7-syllable word would be the process by which a plant actively moves and releases water vapor.

Because cool air settles near the ground, air temperatures directly under trees can be as much as 25°F cooler than air temperatures above nearby blacktop.  Using shade effectively requires you to know the size, shape, and location of the moving shadow that your shading device casts.  Your landscaper can help you save energy and improve comfort!

That is where we come in.  We are Laird Landscaping of Houston.  We were voted Katy’s best landscaper and we believe that we are your best choice for designing energy-efficient landscaping on your Houston area property this summer.  It starts with a phone call to our family-owned business.  That number is (281) 578-2795.

Seeing is Believing.

Those words really ring true in many areas of endeavor.  As it pertains to landscaping installation it could not be truer.  When you reach the point that you want to beautify your surroundings and increase the value of your property you need to choose carefully.  Whom should you hire to turn that dream into reality?

You can hear about a landscaping company and people who have used them may rave about their work.  That is very helpful, but as the heading indicates seeing REALLY is believing.  So, instead of taking someone else’s word for it, why not visit www.lairdlandscaping.com to see the amazing work that has been done by Katy Texas’ #1 landscaper.

Laird Landscaping has a reputation which began decades ago.  Now, well into the 21st century that family pride continues.  Take a look at the gallery on the tab marked installation.  That’s impressive enough, but wait until the crew comes to your home to assess the work that will transform your Houston area property into a dream come true!  Call them at (281) 578-2795.
