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.
