How Does a Pergola Differ from an Arbor?

It is probably not the topic of conversation that you had at your last dinner party, but if you are ready to beautify your Houston area property it may be a subject that will come up. Either way, Laird Landscaping of Katy are experts at designing the perfect arbor or pergola on your property.

If you are not familiar with a pergola, it consists of columns used to support a roofing grid of beams and rafters. It could be attached to your home or free standing. Arbors, on the other hand, are usually smaller, simpler, and have smaller curved structures at the top. Plus, they are generally free standing structures.

You see, Laird Landscaping has designed and installed pergolas, arbors, and so many other structures to beautify your Houston area home for decades. When you are ready to make your home the envy of your neighborhood call Laird Landscaping of Katy at (281) 578-2795. For an eye-popping look at more of their work visit

How Do I Improve the Drainage in My Houston area Yard?

Fear not, this occurrence happens to homeowners all throughout The United States. It is more common than you’d think, and it usually starts with small puddles and wet spots appearing in your grass. You may even be seeing muddy patches and swamp-like areas in your yard. That is not very attractive or even conducive to foot traffic!

Here are some of the causes of drainage problems in and around Katy –

1.  The soil’s plane does not divert water away from your house.

2.  The downspout is too short.

3.  The soil has become impacted due to construction projects.

4.  Runoff has stripped away some of the topsoil causing erosion.

5.  A concrete path in front of your home could be blocking water.
