The Reality of Flooding in Houston.

Let’s face it, Harvey reminds us that Houston is built on what amounts to a massive flood plain, pitted against the cantankerous Gulf of Mexico and routinely hammered by the biggest rainstorms in the nation.  The nation’s fourth largest city is vulnerable to more devastating flooding in the future.

Harvey may have been unprecedented in and of itself, but we will be deceiving ourselves if we turn a blind-eye to future flooding.  Here are some landscaping flood-prevention steps –

1.  Swales redirect water damage.
2.  Use heavier mulch.
3.  Divert rain spouts.
4.  Add drainage to the sides of your house.

There are others.  To learn more about preventing future flooding on your Houston area property contact Laird Landscaping.  We are Katy’s flood control landscape professionals.  Laird Landscaping has been dealing with Houston area landscaping issues for decades.  Please give us a call to get an assessment of your property’s flood control at (281) 578-2795.

Has your Lawn’s Sprinkler System seen Better Days?

Believe it or not, because we are blessed to live in the Houston area spring is nearly here.  We live in a climate where year around watering is common and if your sprinkler system is beyond 20 years old you are probably living on borrowed time.  When was the last time that it was checked for efficiency?

You may find that some of the components are outdated, but that the sprinkler system itself has not yet met its maker.  This is Houston NOT Chicago and it is definitely not too early to have the entire system checked by a professional.  I know, after Harvey you are probably thinking…not MORE water, but your lawn needs that consistency in the months ahead.

Laird Landscaping has been recognized in Katy and throughout the Houston area as a premier lawn sprinkler system replacement company.  This is just one of our many talents.  To see them all, please visit  Check out what services you may need in the year(s) to come.  Then call (281) 578-2795.
