In Houston, Landscaping is a Year Round Job.

Those poor people up north, when they think landscaping they think Spring and Fall. Those that live in the northern half of the country will just have to wait until next spring to beautify their property.  In the Houston area, landscaping is a year round business.

Now is the perfect time for you, the Houston home owner. Many folks will wait until spring or summer to make landscaping and hardscaping investments. They may even believe that such services are unavailable to them in the fall and winter months, especially if they were born up north and have repatriated to our beautiful city.  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 our area.  The weather would rarely slow down a great landscape company from putting in a fence, a putting green, a retaining wall, sod, and plenty more ideas... all year long.  Call us today or call us tomorrow at (281) 578-2795. Call anytime. Laird Landscaping is ready to cover your landscaping needs, whether it's Winter, Spring, Summer or Fall.  Take advantage of yet another opportunity that the temperate climate of Houston affords us.

Professional Patio Installation.

Are you considering having a patio professionally installed?  This is a great time to do it now that the hot and humid days are well behind us. There are many different types of materials to choose from, however they don't all produce similar results. Many landscaping websites list stamped concrete as a low cost alternative to individual brick pavers, but like the saying goes, "You get what you pay for." Although stamped concrete achieves a look slightly similar look to brick pavers, inferior durability and the level of difficulty when it comes to making repairs has a huge impact on the actual cost in the long run.  

Perhaps the most common material for driveways, walkways, and patios is concrete. It is known for its relatively low cost per square foot which makes it an inexpensive, but quality option for homeowners. Whenever the concrete begins to crack (and it surely will) that is when the long term cost exceeds the cost of installing beautiful brick or stone pavers. Many cracks are a result of shrinkage, heavy loads, settlement, and weather changes. Once these cracks occur they're difficult to repair with an exact color match and the results are often unsightly.
