The Right Fencing for Houston’s Hot Summers.

Fences come in all sizes and many different types of material, but what is best for the Houston area?  First of all, we at Laird Landscaping, voted Katy’s best by the public may well recommend aluminum fencing.  Before you trot out that post-hole digger and start making holes on your property, we want you to be aware of the pitfalls.

Here are a few –

1.  Never, never dig holes without a great deal of forethought and planning
2.  To auger or not to auger…that is the question.
3.  End posts need to be as close to the house as possible without touching it
4.  Do you use dry set or wet set concrete?

We don’t want to scare you away from aluminum fencing on your Houston area property.  We are here to help.  At Laird Landscaping we know the value of a secure, nice-looking, long-lasting fence.  So why not give us a call and we’ll come out to your home to assess the project.  We are Laird Landscaping at (281) 278-2795.

What is an Arbor Used for?

Here is a good definition…An arbor is a vertical structure in a landscape or garden that can provide shelter, shade, and especially privacy, as well as serving as the perfect accent piece.  It  blends in with the landscape and can separate different garden areas and direct traffic.  Its walls and roof consist of open framework to support colorful vines.

When you consider designing an arbor for your Houston area yard, strive to repeat the architectural details of your home.  This will help tie together the house with the landscape.  As far as height is concerned an arbor is eight to ten feet high.  This will allow plenty of room to walk under it and maintain the vines and plants growing overhead.

It really is an amazing addition to your property!  It is one of the many areas of landscaping expertise provided by Laird Landscaping.  Laird was voted #1 in Katy and proudly serves the Houston area with landscaping ideas to enhance your home.  They are excited to meet you and your property.  Just give ‘em a call at (281) 278-2795.
