Stay Light Years Ahead of the Neighborhood.

This time of year, Houstonians work and play long after the sun sets.  Many of our residents are working all day and want to recreate in their back yards at night.  When you add the perfect outdoor lighting system your property is inviting for family members and guests both day and night.  How does that sound?

Think of it this way.  Your back yard is another room in your home that has yet to be fully appreciated.  You wouldn’t think about leaving the living room without light would you?  Let the neighbors live with that light bulb outside of their door.  By the way, it also adds luster to your outdoor sculptures or fountains.

Come on, you worked hard to acquire your home, now show it off!  Because of our temperate climate in the Katy and Houston area any time is a good time to consider outdoor lighting.  Call us to discuss your outdoor lighting and general landscaping needs.  We are Katy’s best landscape company voted by you.  That’s Laird Landscaping at (281) 578-2795.

The Best Time to Install a Sprinkler System…or Drainage System.

How about right now?  There are several advantages to making that important investment and having a new system in November/December in the Houston area.  Having said that, it is so very important to make sure that just because we live in a temperate climate we must not get ripped off on a new sprinkler or drainage system!

Here are a few things to watch for –

1.  Prices were recently increased so they could give a “deep discount”
2.  The job will not be done as professionally so that the seller of the system can cut corners
3.  They just happen to be having a “going out of business” sale

Laird Landscaping is NOT going anywhere!  We have been serving Katy and the Greater Houston area for two generations and we continue to be one of the very best landscaping experts around.  This really is a great time for the installation of a new sprinkler and/or drainage system.  Give us a call at Laird Landscaping at (281) 578-2795.

It’s Concrete…not a Diamond!

Concrete will always crack, it’s inevitable. At Laird Landscaping one of our primary focuses is the design of hardscapes.  That often entails ridged pavements such as poured concrete. Concrete joints are a relatively minor part of most projects, but can easily lead to poor planning and design if installed incorrectly.

To avoid unwanted cracks, we utilize a couple of concepts: control joints and expansion joints.  Control joints are installed in concrete to control cracks where they are desired.  They only crack at pre-planned locations.  Expansion joints expand and contract independently of one another without cracking.

Whatever you need done with the concrete around your home we can provide the design that you need to make your property a castle.  For decades we have served Katy and the Houston area with professional landscaping ideas and implementation.  Before you begin your next project give us a call at Laird Landscaping (281) 578-2795.

Cover Up…But Not Too Much.

When you sit out in your backyard you want to enjoy the wide-open spaces, but a patio cover really enhances the experience.  Patios as well as decks create marvelous great outdoor spaces, allowing you to enjoy the natural landscape of your home, while also maintaining a sense of enclosure or closed space.

Here are some different types of patio covers to consider –

1.  Wooden…simple and elegant
2.  Aluminum…the most common for durability
3.  Acrylic…holds up in harsh weather
4.  Latticed…appealing as well as elegant

There are many choices when it comes to choosing the right patio cover for the backyard of your Houston area home.  Whom to call to help you with this project is easy.  It’s Katy’s best landscaper.  Laird Landscaping voted Katy Texas’ best landscaper by survey!  Call Laird today and make your patio cover dreams come true at (281) 578-2795.
