Are You Feeling the Christmas Spirit Yet?

It is harder this year…isn’t it? Christmas 2020 is not like any other one in our memories. Yet, it is still Christmas, so how do we get into the spirit of the season? For many, stress may have a lot to do with sapping our Christmas spirit, whether it’s our finances, too much to do, having to be around people we may not enjoy being around…maybe 2020 will eliminate that last point!

Here are some tips to get into the spirit this year –

1.  Listen to holiday songs. I’m dreaming of…

2.  Watch Christmas movies…maybe avoid Die Hard!

3.  Decorate inside and out if you like.

4.  Wrap gifts

5.  Bake lots of holiday treats.

Here at Laird Landscaping we hope that your family as well as ours will remain safe and healthy this December of 2020. Our family has been serving Houston’s and Katy’s landscaping design needs for decades and will continue to do so in 2021. From the Laird family to yours have a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

It Starts with The Sheepskin.

That is a strange beginning for a short missive about a landscaper, but in this case it was a compassion of Otis Laird Jr. to get his degree in Landscape Architecture at Texas Tech University. Later, son Trey graduated from Tech to become a landscape architect as well. When his dad knew the business was in great hands, he turned it over to his son in 2007.

Time flies (even in 2020) and Trey has now been pleasing clients with his skills for more than 20 years. Here is the offshoot of the hard work put in by the Laird family…The Houston Business Journal named them one of the top ten landscaping companies in the Houston area. Then the city of Katy named them the best landscaper in that community.

Never has the Laird family taken your specific needs for granted. Every job is unique! As we enter a better year remember to call Laird Landscaping of Katy and the Houston area for your landscaping design needs.

It’s Tree Time!

Fall is finally here. Now that the weather is becoming slightly cooler, it is a perfect time to add a new tree or a grouping of shrubs to the landscape. Or perhaps you have an area in the landscape that needs 'remodeling' or rejuvenating. The fall may be the best season to plant, better even than spring in the Houston area.

Many people around Katy prefer January through March for planting, but the fall months of September through December have distinct advantages. Fall planting follows the heat of summer, and prior to a cool winter season. Trees and shrubs planted in the fall use this to good advantage.

This is a perfect time to “think outside the box.” Hasn’t that been what 2020 is all about? Plant those trees and shrubs now with the help and advice of the Houston area tree planting professionals of Laird Landscaping of Katy. Look up Laird on the web at Give ‘em a call at (281) 578-2795.

Yes…Even Today Good Fences Still Make Good Neighbors.

A fence is not only good because it increases the privacy and security of your Houston area home, but to make it more appealing from the curbside. Obviously, it also keeps your pets inside your property. Pick the absolute best style for your home, and maybe double-check that you’re doing things the right way, as well as the legal way.

Here are some tips to fence-building –

1.  Be certain of what you want before you even think about beginning the project.

2.  Each fence type brings certain maintenance responsibilities.

3.  Let your neighbors know about your plan…they will be affected too.

4.  Choose a fence installation professional to do the job.

How Do you Look from Out Front?

It is a question we may have asked of ourselves many times. When it pertains to the front yard of your property try to step back and see it as if you were standing in front of your Houston area home instead of inside. Here is an idea…walk down the street, then turn back. Do the same in the other direction. Are you pleased with what you see?

Here are some questions you may ask yourself –

1.  Does your house blend into the neighborhood?

2.  How distinctive does it look from the street?

3.  Does it need stronger horizontal and vertical lines?

4.  Are you making notes of your hopes and dreams?

Then call us Laird Landscaping and design the dream scenario for your castle in Katy or around the Houston Metro. Here at Laird Landscaping we will make your property landscape design dreams come true. See some of our eye-popping work on the web at How about giving us a call at (281) 578-2795.
