It’s Perennial Planting Time.

Sorry Chicago…apologies to Cleveland…and don’t even think about Minneapolis!  This is Houston and our moderate winter temperatures allow us to consider planting those perennials this time of year.  Eat your hearts out up North.  Those of us in the moderate climes of southeast Texas are going to get a head start on spring.

Actually, we are encouraged to plant now simply because the cooler temperatures will facilitate a healthy start.  Learn more about the type of beauty that you want surrounding your Houston home by researching perennials such as coneflowers, the Peruvian lily, and the always popular catmint.  You will find dozens of possibilities.

Start with a phone call to your professional Houston landscape designer - Laird Landscaping.  They were not only voted the best landscaper in Katy, but one of the top ten in ALL of Houston.  We hope that 2017 will be a special year for you and your property.  Make it come to life by relying on Laird Landscaping at (281) 578-2795.

Staying Within Your 2017 Landscaping Budget.

The New Year means new budgets.  Setting certain goals and budgets for your household is vital this time of year.  If you stick with the program it will be a more satisfying 2017.  Are you taking a vacation?  Are you buying a new car?  What “extras” are you planning for in this brand new year?  Somewhere on that list should be a landscaping budget.

Beautifying your home not only gives you and your family more comfort and enjoyment, but increases the value of your property as well.  Consider patios and walkways this year.  If you compare this to a high maintenance deck you can quickly see how you can add value and save at the same time.  Allow for some mulch.  This will prevent loss of moisture, erosion, and control weeds.

Fortunately, we live in beautiful Houston with its moderate year-round temperatures.  Our friends up north have to wait months to implement these property improvement changes.  All you have to do is decide when and how much you wish to invest.  Start the ball rolling now by calling one of the top landscapers in the Houston area, Laird Landscaping at (281) 578-2795.
