Landscaping in the Houston Area Knows No Season.

When many people think of landscaping they think Spring and Fall. Those that live in the northern half of the country may be right. However, in the Houston area, landscaping is a year round business.

This is a great opportunity for you, the Houston home owner. Many folks will wait until spring or summer to make landscaping and hardscaping investments; thinking that such services are unavailable to them in the fall and winter months.  Laird Landscaping serves the Houston area year around.

Face it, there's no snow to plow, no blizzards to stop us and no avalanche warnings in the Houston area.  The weather would rarely slow us down from putting in a fence, a putting green, a retaining wall, sod, the list goes on... All year long.

Call us today or call us tomorrow at (281) 578-2795. Call anytime.
Laird Landscaping is ready to cover your needs, whether it's Winter, Spring, Summer or Fall.

Perennial Plants May Increase the Value of Your Houston Area Home.

Are you looking to add plants to your property that provide beauty and stimulate compliments all year round? Here are three types of flora that can bring appeal to your property:

Alstroemeria (Peruvian lily)

The Peruvian lily
comes in shades of purple with dark flecks and last well in bouquets. Alstroemeria aurea (The Peruvian lily) blooms come in shades of yellow and orange.

Aster x frikartii

Delicate-looking flowers on ultra-tough plants tolerate just about any soil type. ‘Mönch’ grows to 2 feet-tall and pumps out 2 1/2-inch lavender-blue flowers almost all year if spent ones are removed.  Wonder of Staffa’ is another favorite with lavender blue blossoms.

Coneflower (Echinacea)

Colorful and super tough, ‘Ruby Star’ from Monrovia nurseries has large pinkish-purple blooms with pronounced coppery centers.  The plant grows 2-feet tall; the flowers are 4 inches across. Among the many showy hybrids are ‘Orange Meadowbrite’, butter-yellow ‘Sunrise’, and reddish-orange ‘Sundown’.
