Have You Thought About a Sprinkler System for Your Houston Property?

If you have considered a sprinkler system around your Houston or Katy area home Laird Landscaping is ready to do the installation of a new, guaranteed system. Of course, it all begins with the local building department to obtain all necessary permits and contacting a center to have the local utilities marked for any buried electrical cables, gas lines, or sewer lines.

From there some of the steps toward your new sprinkler system are -

1.  Digging trenches with the proper machinery.

2.  Making the correct water connection.

3.  Installing zone valves.

4.  Properly placing the pipes within the trenches.

5.  Connecting the pipe at the valve box.

And on it goes from there. Does that sound like a DIY job? We don’t think so! At Laird Landscaping we will do all of it from start to finish to your satisfaction. Installing sprinkler systems has been a specialty of Laird Landscaping in Katy for decades. See examples of our quality work at Call us while the weather is moderate (281) 578-2795.

Expand Your Houston Home’s Horizons.

An expansion joint, which is also known to some as a movement joint, is an assembly consisting of a separation in concrete as well as a flexible material such as a sealant or bond breaker. They are designed specifically in order to break the bond between building sections to ensure the sections can separate. Laird Landscaping in Katy has a product called Trim-a-slab that creates a nice flexible finish that fills the void of the rotted out wood joint. Ask about it.

Since the Houston area has been prone to heavy rains in recent years, moisture movement is caused by materials expanding and contracting from increases or decreases in moisture content. Some materials will expand when saturated with water and return to their original state after drying out. They act as a dry sponge when they are initially installed. Trey Laird and his team will examine expansion joints in patios, walkways and driveways where the wooden expansions joints deteriorate over time.

Expansion joints may be very important to your Katy and Houston property. Professional, guaranteed expansion joint installation is done by Laird Landscaping located in Katy.

What is the Purpose of an Arbor?

An arbor is a vertical structure used in landscaping or gardening that can provide shelter, privacy, and serves as a beautiful accent piece on your Houston area property. It often blends in with the landscape or separate different garden areas and directs traffic. It consists of an open framework to support colorful and fragrant vines.

The standard height for an arbor is about 8 to 10 feet, which allows plenty of room to walk under and maintain vines or plants overhead. Whether it will be freestanding or attached, an arbor will be supported by columns or posts, which support horizontal beams. In addition to vining plants, the arch or roof can be lattice or covered with a shade cloth.

Only your imagination can inhibit you from having a gorgeous arbor on your Katy property. To achieve that perfect touch, look to the Houston arbor-building experts at Laird Landscaping of Katy. They know what makes your property look better! See their designs at and call them this spring at (281) 578-2795.

Tackle This Problem BEFORE the Rains Come.

Every year now, the Houston area seems to get a good shower. From heavy rains to hurricanes with strange names come calling. This year, let’s get ahead of the game by concentrating on the drainage system of your property. You see, excessive water will cause the soil to expand around the foundation, which is why it is so important to have proper drainage.

Foundation damage occurs as a result of nature’s uncontrollable effect on concrete slabs and joints. Directing water away from your Houston home is paramount. You do not want to allow water to pool around your castle, which can happen quickly in a major storm. Are you willing to count on a dry 2021?

Check out Laird Landscaping on the internet at and click on the word drainage. Here, you will see the work that they do to control drainage on Houston and Katy area properties. It looks beautiful, doesn’t it? Now, before you really need it and it is too late call Laird Landscaping at (281) 578-2795.
