Installing a Beautiful Paved Patio.

As we turn the corner and head toward spring we think of spending more time outdoors in the Houston area.  A beautifully paved patio will make this year and many years to come even more special.

A patio can be created with many materials, but it’s hard to beat one made from pavers for ease of installation and low maintenance.  The initial cost may be higher than other options, but you will save in the long run by not having to stain or seal it continuously.  Plus, repairs are easier, one paver at a time.

Polymeric sand is a substance used to fill the joints when installing pavers. It is a very fine material, when mixed with water, creates a bonding agent. Polymeric sand is the medium that interlocks pavers while keeping them secured in place. 

Your future is in your backyard.  Now that you’ve thought about it pick up the phone and call Laird Landscaping at (281) 578-2795 or visit their website at
