Landscaping Ideas for 2015 On A Limited Budget

Maintaining a beautiful yard year round may not be as expensive as you think.  If your budget is modest, there are many options and we can help you maximize your space as well as your budget.

Patios and Walkways

Here is one alternative to an expensive and high maintenance deck.  Laird Landscaping of Houston can construct a ground-level patio with pavers made of brick or stone. If properly sealed, once your patio is installed the only care it needs is to be hosed off with water occasionally or swept to ensure the patio remains clean.  You will really appreciate the low maintenance that this entails.

Go Grassless

Hardscaping will stand the test of time for years to come. Shrubs and other low maintenance plants can cover the ground in areas that are free of grass. Potted plants which thrive in our intense summers and mild winters can also provide greenery without putting a dent in your wallet and maintaining a grass-covered lawn.

Remember the Mulch

Mulch prevents erosion, weeds and moisture loss. The mulch should be spread around tree bases, shrubs and flower beds. Bark, sawdust and wood chips are relatively inexpensive. Stone and plastic liners can be placed around trees and flower beds with mulch inside of them. You may also consider stone, which is more costly but very low maintenance.

Low maintenance and low budget options are endless to beautify your Houston area home. For more information, contact Houston’s Laird Landscaping at 281-578-2795 or online at
