Laird Landscaping
Five years ago we hired Laird Landscaping for a total redo of our front yard; new beds, landscaping, lighting, walkways, removal of old trees and planting of a new live oak in the front and red oaks in the back, cedar accent fencing and cedar posts on the front porch. Otis Laird provided us with a layout of the design, costs, etc. and when the job was complete, it was exactly as proposed. Our front yard was transformed and we could not have been more pleased with the outcome or with the quality of the work performed. We constantly receive compliments. Over the years we have hired Laird Landscaping in the spring to clean up our existing landscaping in both the front and back yards. This year, in addition to the annual clean up, we hired Laird to redo our backyard, complete with patio cover, new fencing, clearing out existing beds and putting in all new plantings. Laird Landscaping completely transformed our back yard. It is a beautiful oasis and we love the patio cover! The team at Laird Landscaping can be relied upon to provide professional, dependable and quality workmanship. We would recommend Laird Landscaping to anyone who is looking for a reliable, professional, landscaping company.

After five years of neglecting my landscaping, I called Laird Landscaping, which was recommended to me by my neighborhood "Best" book. Mark Corley came out and spent two hours here, walking the property and showing me what he planned to do. He was a total pleasure to work with and left me with both a price and a plan. Today he and his crew have completed the job, and I couldn't be happier. Jose and his crew were professionals, fast and neat. They pulled up trees, reused what they could, and planted what would give me exactly the look I wanted. Mark was the true visionary. He explained step by step what was to be done and how long it would take. They cleaned up everything before they left, even hauling off some old patio furniture I no longer wanted. The outside of my house has been completely transformed, and I love it!!! Thank you to everyone from Laird Landscape... they are the BEST?Happy happy,Becky Newberry

Laird Landscaping recently completed a major redo of our backyard. The job included demolition and redesign of walkway and patio, as well as complete resign of the green scape. From the initial meeting to the final walk through, each step along the way we were informed and educated about the process. We were impressed daily by the professional work of each member of the team. Each is respectful of and respected by the other. The landscape architect and supervisor , the planting crew, the crew in charge of hard scape, all worked in a very coordinated way. I was home during the day and was able to see the skill involved with the transformation of our backyard. This was not an inexpensive project, but we feel we got great value from Laird. It was a job well and expertly done. The result is beyond what we could have imagined and we will enjoy the new space for many years to come.

We had a very bad experience with a contractor who took our money and deserted the job. That is where Laird Landscaping came in. The resumed our project and restored our faith that it could be completed and to our satisfaction. They brought integrity, respect and punctuality to our project. They respected our property and maintained a clean job site. Every employee whether mason or landscape crew was professional and extremely skilled. In addition Mr. Laird as well as Trey Laird oversaw the work and made sure it was going as planned. Now we have an amazing patio and fireplace to enjoy, not to mention a killer drainage system! I cannot more highly recommend them if you have landscaping, hardscaping or drainage needs. They are truly a great group of people to work with and i would call them in a heartbeat for another job.!!

I am convinced we have found the best lanscaping company in the Houston and Katy area. We hired Laird landscaping to completely redesign our front and side yard. They removed large bushes, planted new trees, redesigned flower beds and resodded. In the backyard they resolved longstanding drainage problems & designed stone & flagstone patios. Mark and his crew were very reliable, skilled, and very approachable. They welcomed our feedback and adapted plans as necessary. Mark and Jose provided daily updates keeping us informed throughout the project. Mark worked with our family regarding budget and project time line. We are completely happy and satisfied with the finished project. We would highly recommend working with Laird landscaping. Dana H

The guys at Laird did an outstanding job on our yard. They were interested, engaged and professional. The crews were hard working and punctual, and their worksite (aka our yard) was cleaned up every night when they were finished. We had solid lines of communication throughout. Pricing was not cheap - but we have hired bargain suppliers before, and it ended up costing more in the end to fix poor work. I would say that they are as strong on design as they are on execution, and are very creative. Five stars.

Adi Landscaping & Tree Service
We hired ADI for the first time last spring. We interviewed a number of landscapers but Hector instantly got our vision an promptly provided us a proposal and quote. He was also willing to split the project into phases to fit our budget. Last year the beds were installed and the sprinkling system reconfigured. This year we had ADI return to install the plants. I just can't get enough of our gorgeous backyard. We were very pleased with ADI's prompt and high quality service.

We had our backyard totally redone - ground graded, new soil, plants, the whole works. In the front yard, we had new beds built and all new plants. I am SO happy with the results. The entire process, from start to finish, was so easy. I really appreciate the professionalism of Mark and the other workers. We finally have a backyard that I am proud of abs that I love spending time in. Would I use them again - YES! Would I recommend to a friend - absolutely.

Our property needed significant upgrading of drainage and landscaping. The Laird team provided excellent consultation and recommendations, was proactive with their communication, completed the project on budget and on time, and the crew provided excellent services. They treated our home as if it were their own. We are thrilled with the end result and will be using the team for another project after the first of the year
Tips & Advices
Irrigation system advantages:
  • Lowers water bill and maintenance time with scheduled watering
  • Evenly distributes water
Irrigation system disadvantages:
  • Professionally installed systems cost between $3,000-$4,000 for a quarter-acre lot.
  • Some do-it-yourself systems cost up to $1,500 but are difficult to install.
  • You may need to call a professional electrician and plumber, adding $300-$600 to your project.
Some plants can stand up to the cold weather, like kale or pansies. These can be planted in the autumn or early winter. Other plants need to wait until the soil is warm and ready. Plant perennial flowers in mid-autumn or mid-spring. If you're planting from seed or sprout, you can generally find information about planting conditions on the package.
Why get artificial grass?
  • Cuts down on lawn maintenance
  • It's environmentally friendly since there‚Äôs no need to water.
  • Artificial grasses may be more attractive than real grass in drought-stricken areas.
Why stick to the real deal?
  • Artificial grass has a high upfront cost - $15 to $20 per square foot.
  • It can be difficult to install.
  • Inexpensive options might look unnatural.
  • It gets hot in the sun.
First, determine which pests you're dealing with. Mounds or tunnels indicate moles or voles. Apply castor oil to your lawn; they'll find another digging spot. Determine which bugs you have by pouring a bucket of soapy water onto the lawn. The bugs will surface so you can identify them. Milky spore and nematodes keep grubs and other bugs at bay. Insecticidal soap also works. The best way to prevent pests is with good yard maintenance. Certain bugs prefer overwatered lawns or yards with thatches. Regular mowing, watering, and dethatching discourage pests from moving in.
Fertilizer isn't always necessary, but it can keep your lawn looking lush and healthy. Use fertilizer with slow release nitrogen so it doesn't encourage weeds to grow. Keep in mind that overfertilizing can spur weed growth. However, under-fertilizing can result in weak grass, which gives weeds more space to take root.
