Wave the Flag.

That’s always a good idea.  In this case we are referring to flagstone.  For the uninitiated, flagstone is known to be an easy material to work with due to the flat, thin nature that comes from the splitting layers of sedimentary stone.  The large, flat stones are used in a variety of landscaping projects. 

So, what’s your project?  Is it a patio, path, walkway, seating area, or maybe walls?  They are available in several different colors, shapes, and thicknesses.  The color palette for flagstone varies from red, pink, orange, brown, blue, gold and even white.  It probably should be at least one inch thick to stand up to heavy traffic.

These are all things that you may or may not know, but I guarantee you we do!  We are Laird Landscaping Katy’s and Houston’s premier landscaping company.  We are proud to have served this community through thick and thin for decades.  Please give us a call to discuss flagstone or any other landscaping idea at (281) 578-2795.

Turn Down the Heat.

Shading and evapotranspiration from trees can reduce surrounding air temperatures as much as 6° F.  Did you know that?  Better yet, did you have any idea what evapotranspiration is?  An explanation of this 7-syllable word would be the process by which a plant actively moves and releases water vapor.

Because cool air settles near the ground, air temperatures directly under trees can be as much as 25°F cooler than air temperatures above nearby blacktop.  Using shade effectively requires you to know the size, shape, and location of the moving shadow that your shading device casts.  Your landscaper can help you save energy and improve comfort!

That is where we come in.  We are Laird Landscaping of Houston.  We were voted Katy’s best landscaper and we believe that we are your best choice for designing energy-efficient landscaping on your Houston area property this summer.  It starts with a phone call to our family-owned business.  That number is (281) 578-2795.
