Everybody always like to have their lawn and the areas surrounding it to be in top condition. This is why they always look for ways to ensure that the place is worked on by an experienced landscaper. When landscaping in Houston, it is important to know how to choose a great landscaper.

When looking for landscapers you usually make sure that you look at their experience. It is best to work with a person that knows the type of area they are working with.

Kate Landscaping Designs And Builds Custom Landscapes


We help homeowners to create beautiful surroundings. We pride ourselves on being communicative, creative, reliable and friendly. Our clients rave about our polite, considerate and hardworking crew.

We work with water, installing ponds, waterfalls, and unique custom fountains. We work with rock, placing boulders and creating retaining walls, crushed rock or flagstone patios and paths. We work with wood, building decks, arbors and raised beds. And we work with dirt, installing site appropriate, unusual trees, shrubs, grasses and perennials to complement your home and lifestyle. All our landscapes include efficient, fully automatic irrigation systems to maximize water efficiency and foster optimum plant growth.

Design/Build – is an all-encompassing philosophy. We believe that real design happens in real time, on the ground, in response to actual site conditions. Drawing the “paper plan” onto the dirt with flags and marking paint creates opportunities for the client’s, the designer’s and the crew’s inspiration and creative improvisation. Furthermore, when the designer and the landscaper are the same entity, they can be fully responsible for the outcome; there is no disconnect between the landscape vision and its implementation. And with fewer opportunities for miscommunication between multiple parties, we believe that the client is better served.
