Bed Edging.

What is bed edging? No, it’s not fighting for room to sleep at night. It is that accent piece of landscaping that gives your Houston area lawn and garden its perfect look. Think of it this way, it lies between a lawn and the adjoining garden. Landscape edging can define a flower border, a shrub bed, a tree, or that transition area from a patio to the surrounding garden.

Bed edging is one of the many talents of the crew from Laird Landscaping of Katy. They serve the landscaping needs and dreams of the greater Houston area. Landscape edging is something that helps to accentuate each separate space while also lending a unifying element to your garden's design…voila!

Water, Water Everywhere.

Well, not everywhere, but rather fountains just where you want them on your Houston area property. Fountains add so much aesthetic value to your home…as well as value. Laird Landscaping of Katy has been designing fountain systems AND installing them for decades.

Here is just one idea…on the house. A pondless, or sometimes referred to as a disappearing fountain, is one in which the water reservoir is hidden underground. Pondless water features near a patio, for instance, or along a path provide a unique visual and add the soft sounds of water.

Are you considering fountains around your Houston property? Laird Landscaping voted the best landscaper in Katy more than once, is the right choice for design and installation. Call the team at Laird Landscaping now at (281) 578-2795 and explore your options. You will see for yourself by visiting lairdlandscaping.com.

Are you Ready for a Fire Pit?

Attention grill-sergeants! Your season is just about upon us (especially here in the Houston area). How about a fire pit? In your backyard, they should be about 1-foot high or so from the base to the top of the wall. This is a good place to begin the designing phase. Of course, you will want Katy’s best landscaper Laird Landscaping to design it for you.

First of all, the Laird family knows that you need “local approval” to build that pit in the first place. Then, and only then, they may begin. An important factor is to position it away from any possible high winds or potentially hazardous areas of your property. See…a lot goes into building a fire pit!

You Could Read a How To…or have it done Right the First Time.

First, a bit of a tutorial. An expansion joint is a material placed in the cracks (AKA joints). It goes between concrete slabs to protect those slabs from cracking when they contract and expand as the temperature changes. In the Houston area that temperature change can be dramatic as we all know!

Here are a few steps that Laird Landscaping in Katy will follow –

1. All of the dirt and debris needs to be removed from the area.

2. Use a putty knife to remove old material.

3. Apply something they found to be perfect for the area.

4. Insert a rod called a “foam backer”.

There are many other steps, of course. When you are ready to tackle a job such as expansion joint replacement…stop! Think of how beautiful it will look when done by the pros at Laird Landscaping who serve the greater Houston area. Just call them first at (281) 578-2795.
