Landscaping is a Family Business.

At Laird Landscaping it all began with our patriarch, Otis Laird II. There is a huge difference between a landscaper that mows your lawn and trims your bushes and a true landscape architect. Laird Landscaping of Katy is definitely the latter! That means we turn your Houston area home into the pride of the neighborhood.

Now, as we enter our fourth decade servicing the landscape design needs of greater Houston, we are proud to have been named Katy’s best landscaper more than once. We take this honor very seriously and work as hard as we did when Otis found the firm in 1982.

Today, we work together as a landscape design family (family being the key word) to make sure that YOUR family is 100% satisfied when we leave your property. We plan on helping Katy and Houston in general continue to count on us for landscape design for decades in the future. Please give us a call at (281) 578-2795. You will see our work at lairdlandscaping.com.

Is This a Good Time to Plant Grass and Shrubs in Houston?

As you might suspect, there are several distinct advantages that make this time of year the best time to plant cool-season grass seed. The soil is still warm from months of summer sun. This combination of warm soil, moderate daytime temperatures and relatively cool evenings encourages fast germination of grass seed and successful growth of plants.

Again, the landscape design experts at Laird Landscaping of Katy and the surrounding Houston area suggest that by planting in the fall, trees and shrubs will develop a strong root system during the fall, winter, and early spring months. When you have been doing this for more than 30 years in the Houston area you get a pretty good idea of “the lay of the land”.

You can count on Laird Landscaping and its decades-long landscaping expertise to give you the right ideas about your dreams for the property that you own. After you see lairdlandscaping.com we think you’ll agree. Then call Trey and his team at (281) 578-2795 to get your fall projects started.

How Does a Pergola Differ from an Arbor?

It is probably not the topic of conversation that you had at your last dinner party, but if you are ready to beautify your Houston area property it may be a subject that will come up. Either way, Laird Landscaping of Katy are experts at designing the perfect arbor or pergola on your property.

If you are not familiar with a pergola, it consists of columns used to support a roofing grid of beams and rafters. It could be attached to your home or free standing. Arbors, on the other hand, are usually smaller, simpler, and have smaller curved structures at the top. Plus, they are generally free standing structures.

You see, Laird Landscaping has designed and installed pergolas, arbors, and so many other structures to beautify your Houston area home for decades. When you are ready to make your home the envy of your neighborhood call Laird Landscaping of Katy at (281) 578-2795. For an eye-popping look at more of their work visit lairdlandscaping.com.
