Don't miss Lady Antebellum performing in Houston on Augusts 27th! 

Ahhh…Cooler air is on its way.

Fall is right around the corner.  And with the change in your personal schedule comes a change on your property.  Simply put, Autumn is the best time to plant trees in the Houston area.  It is almost like clockwork.  When Labor Day comes you should take serious note of your property and the trees that ARE on it as well as the ones you WANT on it.

Why plant trees in the fall around Houston and Katy?  Well, it has been proven that newly planted trees thrive in the cooler weather.  They will spend the winter integrating into the landscape so that they are strong and healthy when the summer of 2018 comes to Houston with all of its searing heat.

Selecting the proper trees, planting, and caring for them should be done with the help of a professional.  For decades we have trusted Laird Landscaping.  The Laird family has cared for your tree planting needs throughout the Houston area and will do so for many decades to come.  Call Laird Landscaping and discuss your desires at (281) 578-2795.

Only the Best Yard Drainage.

Your home deserves the best drainage possible.  Need we remind you of the torrential rains in the Houston area not so long ago?  If you choose not to think ahead then it is bound to happen again and you will definitely be caught off guard because you did not call a professional landscaper for your property’s drainage.

Just a modicum of rain will create an eyesore on your property.  The grass will die in those spots and you can’t run your lawn mower over puddles.  Here is another treat for you…people track mud into your home from stepping in the goo!  One more thing, if that free-standing water is a haven for breeding mosquitoes.

When was the last time that you thought about proper drainage for your Houston area home?  Now is the time to contact the company that was named the best landscaper in Katy.  That is drainage expert Laird Landscaping.  Please give them a call so they can devise the best plan for your property at (281) 578-2795.

A Definition of Hardscaping.

First of all, what is the difference between hardscape and landscape?  Hardscaping is a term that is typically used by people to describe anything used in an outdoor space design that is made of natural materials, but not living materials such as trees, shrubs or other plants and grasses.  That could include things like concrete walls, retaining walls, stone pathways, etc.

Landscape is the term with which we are most familiar.  These are the terms that refer to all  softer living materials. Plants, turf or sod grasses, and organic ground covering materials of many types can be considered landscaping.  When hardscaping and landscaping meet in proper measure that is when the magic happens on your property!

To achieve that perfect balance of the two you should consult the Houston hardscape and landscape professionals at Laird Landscaping.  As you have been sitting in your backyard this summer you may have envisioned a different look.  Laird Landscaping will help bring that look to fruition.  Give them a call today at (281) 578-2795.

What Type of Grass Do You Want?

Wait a minute…is it legal in our state yet?  No…not that type of grass.  We are talking about the kind in our yard - the green stuff that we walk on all year.  We are truly blessed in the Houston area to be able to grow lush, green grass all year with our temperate climate.  It is something that we should not take lightly.

Keeping your lawn lush and green should NOT be taken lightly.  Do not be fooled into thinking that “grass is grass”.  There are several types that each have their own benefits, such as Bermuda which is drought tolerant and rapid growing.  Zoysia a fine textured grass that grows well in partial shade.  There is Ryegrass used during cold months.

An expert will help you decide which type of grass to plant in your Houston lawn and exactly when to plant it.  That expert has been Laird Landscaping.  For well over three decades they have been Katy and Houston’s landscaping professionals.  For all of your home and office landscaping needs call (281) 578-2795.
