Flower Mound, Texas really is named after a mound of flowers. Actually, The Mound is a prominent 12.5-acre rise of virgin blackland prairie located in the center of town and standing 50 feet above the surrounding countryside. Texas’ eminent historian, the late A.C. Greene, believed the hill received its name in the 1840s because of an unusual number of wildflowers that grew on it. Early pioneer settlers never plowed The Mound, using it as a hay meadow, which made the wildflowers, especially bluebonnets, noticeably plentiful in springtime when Texas is at its wettest. Today, the city has received an increasing amount of recognition for its incredible community; find out why current and new residents alike call our team of hardwood flooring installers for their home below!
A recent study by a prominent real estate website has named Flower Mound No.1 on its annual “2017 Best Cities for Families” report. The report was based on key factors like crime, housing affordability, education quality and graduation rate, and the percentage of children under the age of 18 in the population. Flower Mound scored in the 99th percentile for both safety and affordability. Another plus to Flower Mound residency is that Texas Hardwood Flooring is available and eager to doing your hardwood flooring installation or refinishing.
FM was incorporated in 1961. Partly because of the construction and growth of nearby DFW Airport, Flower Mound is one of the ten fastest growing towns in the country, and has been for the last thirty years. In 1970, the population was 1,700; today it has rocketed past 70,000.
This beautiful town has miles and miles of shoreline on Grapevine Lake, home to parks and marinas for boating, fishing and camping, as well as easy access to the popular Knob Hills mountain bike trail. There are many acres of parkland scattered throughout the municipality, making it a truly family-friendly place. There are golf courses, a public library and a Community Activity Center that all contribute to Flower Mound being a fine place to call home. Parker Square was constructed right in the middle of town to create a sense of community; today, there are many restaurants, retail outlets, spas and artistic studios in the Square to bring people together to socialize, shop, and enjoy special events.
Perhaps in response to its record breaking growth spurts, the town encourages conservation development projects to protect and preserve existing open space, vistas, and natural habitats while allowing for controlled growth. Texas Hardwood Flooring is dedicated to conserving the plethora of desirable homes and businesses found in Flower Mound by doing the best work possible when it comes to installing hardwood flooring and refinishing floors already installed.
