Don't just take our word for it, read what others are saying about us.


When I purchased my commercial property over 10 years ago, the Landscape Update company was already maintaining the property. I remember clearly the first time I inquired about this property, it was the well manicured lawn and the beautiful flowers that caught my attention. Once I purchased the property I most certainly kept them to continue doing the great work they do. My clients and friends are always asking me who does the flowers out front, now I just have their business cards to hand out. They also maintain my primary residence and two of my children’s homes.

I am very satisfied with their services and very excited about the landscaping project they completed for me. They were both a pleasure to work with. Give them a call. I highly recommend these guys!
— Mrs. G. Anderson
I am so happy I chose the Landscape Update Co., Shawn and Gerard did an awesome job making my front yard landscaping simply stunning. Their ideas were exactly what the yard needed. I love driving up now and seeing a new home, everything is blooming and growing, which I apparently can not do. So, I have hired them full time to maintain the lawn and the new landscaping. LOVE!!!
— Tammy A.
Landscape Update provides the best lawn service! We love dealing with Shawn and Gerard, the actual owners. Our previous lawn company employees never understood what we ask them to do, they stopped doing the extra things they had agreed to do and they were so fast and then gone. Gerard still bags all the leaves instead of blowing and trying to hide them in the beds, trims all the shrubs, and fertilizes the lawn twice a year. We are beginning year 5 with Landscape Update. These guys are truly two of the nicest, honest and hardworking guys around.
Two Thumbs Up!
— David & Linda L.
I have used Landscape Update for about 13 years. They have transformed my yard over the years to what I had envisioned, probably better. The guys are great, very upfront and very hard working. I refer them every chance I get. They have done work for my neighbors and for all my children!! Awesome Job
— Mrs. Sheila H.
I called Shawn to come visit me at my home. He was on time and very knowledgeable. I hired him to landscape my front yard. They did an EXCELLENT job. Every aspect of the landscaping job was done as promised. It is exactly as we spoke about, except for the rain delays. I will definitely recommend him and his company.
— Rachel K.
The management company I work for uses so many different contractors on a daily basis to maintain the properties we manage. But I have to give it to Shawn, he handles everything for me in a timely manner, he follows up with emails and photos when needed and anything out of his normal responsibilities I have asked of him, he has handled it like a true professional. The properties he maintains for us look the best and the homeowners and tenants are satisfied. Which means less complaints for me to handle. Thank you Shawn and Jay. I really do appreciate everything you do. Where’s my donuts!!
— Jennifer G.
Hard working and honest guys. I hired them last year to landscape around my pool area and they did an outstanding job. I recently fired my lawn man of 4 years and hired Gerard to maintain my lawn.
— Thomas R.
Hello, I just wanted to pass on to you and landscape Update Co. how happy we are regarding the completion of our new project. The experience was extremely smooth and enjoyable. Really good job guys!!
— Mr. T. Mason
I am very happy with the services from Landscape Update. I am a new customer, and have dealt with a few other companies in Houston, I can say they are definitely much easier to work with. They have a lot of knowledge on all plants/flowers and were able to provide me with exactly what I wanted on time. I was also able to speak with them when I called. Thanks again.
