Commercial and Residential Landscaping.

In the greater Houston area we are blessed with good weather nearly 12 months a year.  This does present challenges as well as opportunities.  One of the challenges is making sure that your personal or business property is in top condition 365 days a year.  There are improvements that could and should be made during the course of 2017.

Why not begin imagining what those landscaping innovations may look like in the New Year?  Perhaps a waterfall, some hardscaping, flagstone, a sprinkler system, tree and/or shrub planting, drainage, or lighting around your home or business.  If you can imagine it then there is a true professional in the Houston area that can realize the dream.

That landscaping pro is Katy’s #1 landscaper Laird Landscaping.  They have been serving Houston area residences and businesses for four decades and will bring new perspective to your landscaping ideas in 2017.  Start by writing down some of your ideas in December.  Then call (281) 578-2795. 

Merry Christmas from Laird Landscaping of Houston, Texas.

‘Tis Always the Season for Landscaping.

Take a look at the national weather map.  Aren’t you glad that you live in the Houston area?  No snow shoveling.  No outrageous heating bills.  No chains on your tires.  It is glorious this time of year.  While others are bundled up unable to make improvements outside of their homes up north we have the luxury of looking at our landscaping needs both now and in 2017.

What a great opportunity!  You don’t have to wait until the spring thaw to invest in hardscaping and landscaping for your estate.  This is a great time to consider a putting green, installing a fence, erecting a retaining wall, adding sod, etc.  Your winter landscaping ideas in the Houston area are inhibited only by your vision.

Now let’s choose the right landscaper.  Let’s make it one of Houston’s very best and voted #1 in Katy.  That is Laird Landscaping.  They are your full-service year-round Houston area landscaper.  Call them any time during December and explore your ideas of the upcoming year.  No matter what the season your landscaping solution is Laird.  Give them a call at (281) 578-2795.

A Landscaping Company that Does it All!

There are landscapers in the Houston area and then there are Landscapers.  Do you just want your lawn mown regularly or do you want your home and its surroundings to be your pride and joy as well as the envy of the neighborhood?  Choosing the right landscaper will make all the difference in the look and livability of your property.  Everything needs to be done right the first time!

How about contacting a full scale landscaping and architectural design firm?  Not only that, but a company who understands the intricacies of hardscaping as well.  The most important thing to avoid is a company that sub-leases a great deal of the work.  When that happens you have little or no recourse if the job is not done to your satisfaction.

How about trusting a 30+ year reputation of landscape service professions in the Houston area?  Laird Landscaping was voted the #1 landscaper in Katy and their portfolio is extremely impressive.  You have nothing to lose by calling and arranging for them to come out to your property to share your vision.  Give Trey and the guys a call at (281) 578-2795.

Perennial Planting Time in Houston.

This is a great time of year to consider perennial plants.  Put them in the ground now and they will bring color and extra value to your Houston area home for years to come.  Remember that word value.  When your home looks like the outside of Downton Abbey it is easier to market if you ever decide to sell.  Even if you stay in your home for the rest of your lives it is still a great idea.

Allow us to introduce you to several of these magnificent perennials -
1.  The beautiful purple Aster.
2.  The Coreopis or “mango flower”.  Wait until next summer to see its mango orange bloom.
3.  Forget-me-nots.  Stress-free light blue blooms.
4.  Gaillardia.  These have the appearance of daisies.
5.  Gaura.  You will look twice at these beautiful white flowers.

Of course, there are dozens of other choices.  To do the job right and completely the first time contact the company that was voted the #1 landscaper in Katy TX.  That’s Laird Landscaping.  They will add the charm that your backyard is missing.  Better yet, they can consult and in most cases implement any Houston area landscaping need that you have.  Call them today at (281) 578-2795.

Lighting Your Backyard.

Now we are into the longer nights and shorter days.  In the Houston area we are blessed that these are some of the best days of the year.  Travel 500 miles north and see how much time people are spending in their backyard this time of year.  Since we are blessed with moderate weather most of the year why not take advantage of it around our home?

Let’s start with a plan.  An underground line will need to be run, so a shallow ditch will need to be dug.  It is imperative to have wiring skills and all of the proper tools.  Where should the electrical post be positioned?  The digging of the trench could become nasty work if you try to do it yourself with mounds of dirt piling up everywhere.

Come on now, this is NOT a DIY project.  You are a phone call away from the #1 landscaper in Katy and one of the top ten in the entire Houston area.  Pick up that phone and call Laird Landscaping.  They have been the area’s backyard lighting professionals for decades.  Let them plan and execute the job…and let there be light!  Call (281) 578-2795 today.

Adding Seasonal Color to Your Home.

This time of year in Houston the weather is still quite warm, but you start looking around your yard and imagining what it would be like to add seasonal color to your landscaping.  This is a perfect time to add a tree or two and some shrubs.  Think of the benefits…shade, beauty, variety, and perhaps most importantly…the value of your property increases!

Why plant a tree now?  Here are some good reasons -
1.  Your home’s resale value.
2.  Energy efficiency created by the shade.
3.  Beauty…obviously.
4.  Sitting out in your backyard will put you in a better mood.
5.  Privacy.  You love your neighbors…but maybe not ALL the time.

The next step is to choose the right landscaper for the job.  Pick up that phone and call Laird Landscaping, the tree and shrub pros at (281) 578-2795.  They are one of the top ten landscapers in the Houston, TX metro.  Ask Trey about planning and planting to make those backyard (and front yard) dreams come true.  You’ll be glad that you chose Katy’s #1 landscape company - Laird Landscaping.

No More Summers without a Swimming Pool.

That’s it…you have decided that the summer of 2016 was the last one without a swimming pool on your property.  The way things were in the Houston area this spring we could have just gone out into the backyard for a swim anyway!  Since that weather is a thing of a past, let’s turn our attention to the summer of 2017 and far beyond that.  Your family deserves it.

The first thing to keep in mind is that a beautifully constructed in-ground swimming pool will add significant value to your home.  It virtually pays for itself over time.  You could spend hundreds of dollars every year going to a theme park or you could bring that theme park to your backyard.  Simply put - a swimming pool is a great investment in your home AND your family’s happiness.

So that’s it right?  No more dreaming.  It’s September already.  Let’s get busy.  The first step is to call Laird Landscaping.  They are one of the top ten landscapers in America’s 4th largest city Houston TX.  Ask Trey about planning the landscaping for that dream pool and what needs to be done to fulfill that dream.  You’ll be glad that you picked up the phone and dialed (281) 578-2795.

Landscaping Reviews.

“Great owner, great crew, and great work ethic”.

“The new drainage system is allowing us to enjoy our backyard again”.

Future Flood Prevention.

Now that it is just a memory, let’s not hide our head in the nearest puddle.  Look ahead at the years to come and try to take steps to avoid what we just went through.  This is not just about your personal safety, but it also involves your property and its future as well.  How will it look in the years to come?  Ask yourself…have I taken steps to protect my property in succeeding years?

How is the drainage system around my yard?  Have I replaced trees and shrubs?  Did I repair and prune damaged foliage?  What about any fencing or structures that were downed by the flooding?  It is time to “lick our wounds” and remember what happened to get us there and do what is necessary to avoid it from happening again.

In the future, stay in touch with Laird Landscaping.  For decades Laird Landscaping has been a family owned flood maintenance and repair landscaper in the Houston area.  They were there for your parents when flooding occurred in past years and they will be there for you now and in the future.  Look to the Houston and Katy landscape experts Laird Landscaping at (281) 578-2795.

Flood Damage Control in the Houston area.

Your property has felt the effects of the wettest spring in Houston area history.  Well, we made it to the 4th of July.  Happy holiday everyone!  When you look around your yard these days what do you see?  Do trees and shrubs on your land need pruning and trimming?  That is probably the case with all of the inclement weather we went through.

After you read this go into your backyard and walk around its entirety.  Then begin to map out in your mind what you wish for it to look like when Labor Day arrives.  This is a realistic course of action.  Do your dreams include better groomed trees, a patio cover, a waterfall, a deck, or a fountain?  Maybe some of the above could be accomplished this summer.

You need one of the top ten landscapers in Houston, Texas.  You need a company that offers a full range of landscaping services.  Especially one that has been around for generations building a unique and solid reputation in a thriving and growing metropolis with many dozens of beautiful suburban cities.  Call Laird Landscaping your full service landscape pros at (281) 578-2795.

A Top Ten Houston Landscaper.

There are hundreds of choices in the country’s 4th largest city for landscaping.  Only a select group can be declared one of the top ten.  It is heady stuff and it comes with great responsibility.  To be able to create the perfect look and feel for your property you have to be on the cutting edge of any and all landscaping ideas and innovations.

If you are going to maintain a top ten status, then you must be ready to sit down with anyone who has a landscaping need and listen to their ideas.  One of the most important issues for your property is proper drainage.  Without drainage water may collect in areas of your yard and cause damage, even destroying beautiful plant life and damaging any hardscaping.

Laird Landscaping is not only one of the top ten in Houston, but was also named Katy’s TOP landscaper.  It is a combination of hard work and experience.  The Laird family has been servicing the area as a respected landscaping company for decades.  If this summer is your time for that important landscaping project, then call them today at (281) 578-2795.

How to Prevent Erosion around your Houston Home.

It is important to know the three basic tenants of controlling erosion.  Use the land only up to its capacity.  You should always protect the surface with some type of covering.  Make sure that runoff is controlled so that it does not develop into erosion that cannot easily be managed.  Follow these three basic premises and you are well on your way.

Understand that one size does not fit all.  One conservation practice may be perfect for a particular home, but not the right fit for another.  Erosion effects everyone.  We are losing 1% of our topsoil every year.  If you have a garden or just love your lawn there is sufficient damage being done over time that will become irreparable if not managed properly NOW.

Consider the help of a company that has helped protect Houston property for decades.  That would be Houston’s premier erosion control specialist Laird Landscaping.  Before another 1% of your lawn disappears forever make that call to Laird Landscaping for an estimate and a professional solution at (281) 578-2795.

Rain, rain go away!

We have had enough already.  For the second straight year the Houston area has been deluged with an enormous amount of rain.  It has taken a toll on all of us, but it is especially detrimental to your property.  Soil erosion around your home’s foundation is a major problem throughout the area regardless of where you live in the Houston metro.

One sure-fire way to reduce soil erosion is landscaping and decorative additions to your yard.  Use this unfortunate circumstance to your advantage and give your property a face lift.  Plant grass to keep the soil in the place where you want it.  There are other measures such as landscape timbers, concrete pavers, gravel, and good old rock.

It is time to look for someone who has been protecting Houston property for decades.  Houston’s top erosion control specialist IS Laird Landscaping.  They were voted the #1 landscaper in Katy, not by politicking, but by reputation and word-of-mouth.  Call Laird Landscaping for an estimate and a professional solution at (281) 578-2795.
