Interested In Fencing In Houston?

Interested in fencing? No, not that kind, Zorro. We mean building a fence on your property. Maybe it’s to divide that nosey neighbor who pops up every time he hears you. He’s six feet and your wall is five. You’ll never have privacy! So, what do you do? You build the fence of your desire. Seven feet tall will block out most nosey neighbors (unless you live next door to a chatty NBA center who exceeds seven feet in height).

Sometimes you need a fence to separate an area. Maybe to keep the dogs in a designated area or to keep the kids out of the pool area. We can work with you to figure the exact dimensions that are the most conducive to serving the functionality and comfort you desire.

Whether is a single brick wall, an iron fence or a tall cedar wall to completely enclose your property, we can cover you. Literally.

Call us today for all of your fencing needs. If you’re looking to become a swordsman, give us a call anyway. We can probably build you an outdoor practice area with storage for your épée.

Adding A Water Feature Can Improve The Sight And Sound Of Your Back Yard

Is your beautifully landscaped yard missing something? Maybe a fountain is just what your space needs. By installing a water element, you'll add life and motion to your backyard oasis.

Enjoy relaxing on your patio while listening to the soothing sound of water, your property will be instantly transformed into a retreat. If you enjoy watching Houston's fauna, moving water elements attract more native birds than standing water alone. This added feature will give your space a more tranquil ambiance and an upgraded look all in one.

Water features come in many shapes and sizes. Some look like glazed pots that give off a soothing bubbling sound and motion, other types include a shallow in-ground stream that cascades into a swimming pool. Perhaps a hanging wall fountain is more your style or maybe a small tiled fountain pool nestled away in a corner. The options are endless.

Another added benefit of incorporating a water feature into your property is that the water noise can drown out city and road sounds, turning your yard into a spa like feel.
