Time to Sprinkle.

Have you ever heard it said “is this a good time to install a sprinkler system”?  The answer is always YES, even after Harvey.  Nearly any time of year in the moderate climes of Houston is a good time to get a new, more efficient system.  However, there are several advantages to purchasing and installing a sprinkler system in the autumn.

There is also something to be said about avoiding the difficulties of installing a new sprinkler system in the heat of summer. Our soil can get so hot and dry that you'll see more damage to the lawn/landscape as well as irrigation pipe not able to be buried to the proper depth.  Why subject yourself to that?  Now is the time!

In the Houston area three generations of home and business owners have trusted Laird Landscaping.  They are your Houston and Katy Texas sprinkler installation professionals.  It is already mid-September so make it a priority to have someone from the Laird Landscaping team come out to your home or office for an estimate.  Call (281) 578-2795.

Building from the Ground Up.

Before you begin new home construction or home improvement project, please consult your civic association regarding possible deed restrictions.  This is vitally important in the Houston area because you may not purchase a building permit until you sign a sworn deed restriction affidavit.  You must agree to any and all construction restrictions.

As you move through the process you must determine exactly which permits are required for your project and which are not necessary.  Will you need a general contractor?  How long is each permit valid?  Are you able to file an extension?  What about your sidewalk and driveway.  What permits are required there?

There is plenty to consider.  When you get down to landscaping and fencing the job gets easier.  Simply call Laird Landscaping.  Otis Laird and his team have been one of Houston’s top landscapers for decades.  It is the icing on the cake of your new Katy and Houston area home!  Laird Landscaping an area institution at (281) 578-2795.

Harvey Was No Gentle Six Foot Rabbit.

Harvey has come and gone and left us with the most devastating destruction our area has ever known.  We hope and pray for the safety and future of your family wherever you live in the Houston area.  An event such as this makes us all reflect on how precious and fragile life can be in our home town.

One thing is certain…Houstonians WILL come back stronger than ever!  It was not that long ago that major flooding dealt us a set back and we battled back from that one.  A special thanks to all of the amazing Americans who have helped us recover with their generosity. 

We at Laird Landscaping will be here to help people of the Katy and Houston area as we slowly get our properties back to normal.  In some cases, you may discover that your home and its surroundings will be better than ever after the needed renovations.  Katy’s best landscaper is ready to serve you.  Give us a call at Laird Landscaping (281) 578-2795.

Time to Sow.

As the Bible tells us there is a season for everything.  The time to plant in the Houston area may be now.  Soon, the summer heat and humidity will give way to the more moderate days of autumn.  Look around at your property.  It may very well be time to begin planting for enjoyment and beauty in the years to come.

Here are some reasons why planting now in our area is a good idea-

1.  The ground rarely freezes, so a tree or shrub can take root over the next 6 months.
2.  Planting a tree now will provide shade next summer.
3.  Planting in the fall or winter allows those trees to flourish in the spring.
4.  Less watering is needed this time of year.
5.  You can add instant fall color to your property.

The where, the when, the how, and the whom are all important factors in your landscaping plans.  Why not choose the Houston area landscaper that was recently named Katy Texas’ best landscape company?  That is Laird Landscaping lending its expertise to tree and shrub planting for decades around here.  Call them today at (281) 578-2795.
