More Than Three Decades of Serving The Houston Area

Laird Landscaping has been serving the Houston area, proudly, for more than 32 years and we are just getting started! We offer an array of services under one roof. Often times, multiple contractors and professionals are hired separately to complete a task that Laird Landscaping can do autonomously.

Why hire a hardscaper separate from a landscaper? Why hire an architect separate from a gardener? The question is, why not hire Laird? We are all those things and many more!
A message can get skewed when there are too many cooks in the kitchen. The gardener can accidentally mow a sprinkler head and then trip over a bush, knocking down the gazebo he didn't know was there. A bit of a stretch? Maybe, but If you'd had hired Laird Landscaping, that wouldn't happen at all. What would happen is we are the one's to do all of those things. Build the gazebo, plant the plants, design the drainage system and be fully aware of how everything works, macrocosmically. No need for yard bureaucracy-- consolidate. We are your one stop shop for yard excellence.
