It Could Be the Pits if You Try Doing it Yourself.

Having a fire pit might be great, but building it yourself might be the pits! Why not let Laird Landscaping of Katy do the job? They are expert fire pit builders in Houston. It starts out rather simply by outlining what will be the footprint of the fire pit to mark the work area. It gets much more complicated from there.

If it is a circular fire pit you must drive a stake at the center of what will be the fire pit location. Then, using marking paint tie a string around the stake. The diameter of the circle should be slightly larger than the outside dimensions you’re preparing to build. Remove the sod and dirt to a depth of about 7 inches from inside the perimeter. Believe me, that is only the beginning!

At Laird Landscaping fire pit building is just one of the many ways to enhance your Houston area properties’ beauty and value. You will see the many ways that Katy’s own Laird Landscaping has become one of Houston’s best Landscapers over and over by visiting lairdlandscaping.com. Please call (281) 578-2795.

Expand Your Houston Home’s Horizons.

An expansion joint, which is also known to some as a movement joint, is an assembly consisting of a separation in concrete as well as a flexible material such as a sealant or bond breaker. They are designed specifically in order to break the bond between building sections to ensure the sections can separate. Laird Landscaping in Katy has a product called Trim-a-slab that creates a nice flexible finish that fills the void of the rotted out wood joint. Ask about it.

Since the Houston area has been prone to heavy rains in recent years, moisture movement is caused by materials expanding and contracting from increases or decreases in moisture content. Some materials will expand when saturated with water and return to their original state after drying out. They act as a dry sponge when they are initially installed. Trey Laird and his team will examine expansion joints in patios, walkways and driveways where the wooden expansions joints deteriorate over time.

Expansion joints may be very important to your Katy and Houston property. Professional, guaranteed expansion joint installation is done by Laird Landscaping located in Katy. Call them for an assessment of your property this spring at (281) 578-2795. You will see all of their landscaping talents by googling lairdlandscaping.com.

What is the Purpose of an Arbor?

An arbor is a vertical structure used in landscaping or gardening that can provide shelter, privacy, and serves as a beautiful accent piece on your Houston area property. It often blends in with the landscape or separate different garden areas and directs traffic. It consists of an open framework to support colorful and fragrant vines.

The standard height for an arbor is about 8 to 10 feet, which allows plenty of room to walk under and maintain vines or plants overhead. Whether it will be freestanding or attached, an arbor will be supported by columns or posts, which support horizontal beams. In addition to vining plants, the arch or roof can be lattice or covered with a shade cloth.

Only your imagination can inhibit you from having a gorgeous arbor on your Katy property. To achieve that perfect touch, look to the Houston arbor-building experts at Laird Landscaping of Katy. They know what makes your property look better! See their designs at lairdlandscaping.com and call them this spring at (281) 578-2795.
