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

How Do I Improve the Drainage in My Houston area Yard?

Fear not, this occurrence happens to homeowners all throughout The United States. It is more common than you’d think, and it usually starts with small puddles and wet spots appearing in your grass. You may even be seeing muddy patches and swamp-like areas in your yard. That is not very attractive or even conducive to foot traffic!

Here are some of the causes of drainage problems in and around Katy –

1.  The soil’s plane does not divert water away from your house.

2.  The downspout is too short.

3.  The soil has become impacted due to construction projects.

4.  Runoff has stripped away some of the topsoil causing erosion.

5.  A concrete path in front of your home could be blocking water.

What Does the Hot Summer Sun do to your Expansion Joints?

When your Houston area home was built, expansion joints were a huge part of the construction because they allowed materials to withstand the shrinking and expanding effects of the surrounding temperature. When expansion joints need to be replaced you can call Katy’s own Laird Landscaping.

Concrete is the most common construction material used to make expansion joints. However, it is known to expand during the summer (especially OUR summers). You may very well have questions as to what materials are to be used to fill up those concrete joints. Trey and his team at Laird Landscaping will answer those questions.

Expansion joints, pavers, flagstones, arbors, sprinkler systems. The list goes on and on. For more information about how Laird Landscaping serving the Houston area turns your home into a castle just visit When you see what they do we’re pretty sure you won’t hesitate to call (281) 578-2795.

Have You Heard of a Disappearing Fountain?

No, this is not a new David Copperfield routine! A pondless disappearing fountain as you might have suspected is one in which the water reservoir is hidden underground. Laird Landscaping of Katy and Houston uses pondless water features near a patio or along a path to provide a unique visual and add the soft sounds of water.

A disappearing fountain may be the right option for your Houston area yard. It is comforting to know that they are safe for your children because there is no open water. The intense sun around here does not trigger evaporation that causes water loss. And…they are perfectly suitable for smaller spaces.

Is it time for you to consider a disappearing fountain? Let Katy’s best landscaper help you decide. Laird Landscaping will show you the benefits of any fountain system for your Houston area home. See the full story at Let Trey and his team help you decide. Just call (281) 578-2795.
