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.

There is a Problem With Our Neighbor’s Fencing.

If you saw the cute commercial that featured this, you probably got a chuckle. If you build a fence around your Houston property without observing the rules YOU could be the one with which there is a problem! Obviously, you can’t just willy-nilly build a fence in Katy or the surrounding area without observing certain rules.

Some of the fence-building codes are –

1.  Know if you require a permit first.

2.  If so, the application MUST be filled out completely and accurately.

3.  Of course, it must be entirely within your own property.
