1000 Can be a “High” Number.

When is 1000 a high number?  It is when that number translates into the number of high-water rescues that have recently occurred in Harris County.  There have been thousands of weather-related calls for service during this recent flooding.  Every day presented new and dramatic challenges as the Houston area recovers.

Here are some landscape flooding solutions that will attempt to avoid disaster next time –

1.  Swales are any depression in a landscape that redirects water drainage.
2.  Install a rain garden.
3.  Use heavier mulch.
4.  Divert rain spouts.
5.  Add a drainage system around your home.

All of this and more can be done with the help of Laird Landscaping of Katy and the greater Houston area.  Next time you will be prepared!  Avoid flood damage to the greatest possible extent by planning ahead.  Call the professional landscape team at Laird Landscaping (voted Katy’s best) at (281) 578-2795.

Here are some tips –

1.  Start by sketching out your beds on four pieces of graph paper.
