"We loved the company!! They showed up and walk through the project with us. The team came in and in 5 day we had our patio and starting enjoying this great nights" out doors in the back yard. The leader worker was very easy to work with and would keep us updated on everything that was going on. I would recommend this company to all my friends and family!!

"We have a very large house with a wrap around deck and a very large lake front house. The replaced many rotted boards on the deck, re-stained the entire deck and" did some support work also. Very, very good job. Our landscaping had been let go for a few years and was very badly overgrown. They hand pulled all the weeds out of the rock beds, trimmed all the shrubs ( in very nice shapes) cleaned it all up and made it look beautiful. The whole finished job looked better then I imagined and the price was more then reasonable. Finished the job on time on budget and did a better job then I expected I would very highly recommend
for all your outdoor yard improvement needs. Not just fixing your old landscape or deck. They also build new decks and design and install a complete new landscapes custom designed to your specifications. Should also mention the owner has a very high degree in horticulture and landscape design from U of M. Great knowledgeable guy.

Angie's Answers

I don't care about lawns--I planted mine in clover and don't have to mow it. When I do need to mow I use a rotary Fiskars mower, which is great--or a scythe. That's right--a scythe (the European type, which is smaller, and it's very good exercise). Gas-powered mowers, chemical fertilizers and weed killers--all nasty stuff that gets into everyone's air, soil, and water. I'm sure my neighbor doesn't like my wildflowers, semi-wild pockets of fruit bushes, and unmown areas and yes, dandelions (I have 10 acres) but that's too bad. It's better habitat for wildlife, especially the pollinators on which our food supply depends. I think this obsession with the Great American Lawn is a waste of time and resources. Plant some food instead.


One of the more difficult issues facing you will be making sure you compare apples 'n apples while understanding the differences between apples 'n oranges.

Some things common to all:

How far from your (water) meter pit to the home?

Do you know what sort of water pressure you have?

Those two questions sortta drive the rest.  How many sprinklers you have is a piece of the puzzle but it is lower on the issues list than how much water pressure and gallons per minute of flow (gpm) you have.  Knowing the water pressure and gpm coming to the house is important because it is the info divided by the flow rate of the heads to tell you how many you can run at a time.

 That, plus the number of heads it takes to cover your yard will let them decide on how many zones to cut the yard into (each zone is X number of heads that run at the same time).

Will the different estimates be for systems that are all parts from a single manufaturer or will it be a collection of brands?  Some will tell you that the parts (controller, back-flow, heads and even specific heads) are better from different manufacturers while others will tell you that all from a single manufacturer will give you an optimized system.

And, are the contractors equally certified?  Not only education and experience but certifications from the various manufacturers who's parts they want to use.  And, will their installations be the same?  Will they open trenches all around your yard and be a week getting the stuff layed, connected and back-filled?  Or, will they pull the flexible pipe and be in 'n out in one day with water flowing to cover their intrussion before they leave that day?

Will your system need to be blown out with pressurized air at the end of the season to avoid winter freeze and bursts or will it drain automagically?

I know, I took your simple question and made it hard.

When I bought my system about 9 years ago, I had a variety of estimates and the differences sortta fell into the mess I listed above.  The low estimate was a person who seemed to be from the "get it in the ground and fix it later" school.

The highest estimate was from someone who seemed more concerned about my yard and the final result than I was.  The low person was using parts 'n pieces from a variety of manufacturers.  The high person was certified by the company that made all the parts he was wanting to use and he carried a fairly high rating from them for his past performance..  He would vary for me if I wanted but he had sound reasons from the controller to each of the heads as to why he preferred his "brand".

It doesn't look like you are a member of Angie's List.  Given the size of the investment you are looking at, this might be a great time to join and see how others in your community have rated the contractors you are considering or if there is one you should add to your list. 

My yard is between 12 and 15,000 square feet less the house, deck, two mini-barns and it is interrupted with a number of blocking (blocks the stream of water) evergreens and planting beds.

The low estimate I had was about $2,500 and would take three days to put in from the time they began to trench.  I don't recall how many heads he wanted to put in but if it was off, he'd be able to put another anyplace and tie it to the nearest zone to give me good coverage.  Uh, this was the get it in the ground 'n adjust later person.

The high estimate I had was around $4,500.  This proposal was for seven active zones each having 5 to 7 heads.  There was enough capacity (extra zone controllers and space within the system controller) built in to add drip irrigation at a later date for the planting beds without having to replace anything.  He drew the entire yard and gave me a copy with the heads marked showing the "throw" of each and the overlap he built in to avoid any missed areas.  And, they wanted to arrive in the morning and leave that evening with the system watering to cover their tracks throughout the yard.  One day and they would not leave until it was working as advertised!

I took the high estimate.  I have a neighbor who bought from the other folks.  Both of us are happy.  He is really happy because each time he calls his company for adjustments or corrections (yep, they got it in the ground and are still putzing with it) they are out within the week, they are really easy to do business with and their service calls' costs haven't gone up a whole bunch.

Sorry, you can't look at the price and divide by X number of heads and have a fair comparison.


1) IF you are talking the root crown - the portion where it is not one solid truck or "bole", but still a solid or near-solid mass of roots coming off the base of the trunk, then that has to come out on way or another. Typically, once you get beyond about a 3 foot circle then you are in the radial portion of the roots where they spread out laterally, and are a foot or more apart, and new roots can grow in that area fro the new tree OK. Of course, be prepared to have to trim some volunteers so the old tree can't come back, and be sure to fertilize the new tree per recommendations because the old roots will still be trying to extract water and food from the soil to support the tree that they do not yet realize is gone. Do NOT put stump killer or poison in the old tree - will kill new one too.

2) The proper commercial way to do this is to have the entire root crown and larger roots removed with a stump grinder - looks like this -


You need a tree service that can grind down at least two feet below ground level and remove the root crown and larger root segments. If you hve large roots running laterally quite a ways, he can grind them up too - ditto to "trippers" sticking up above ground. Just be sure to have it clear (spray painted) upfront how far he is going for what he quoted - typically about $150 for tree up to 1-2 feet in diameter, up to $500 for a massive sycamore or walnut or cottonwood or redwood with 6 foot diameter crown. While you can rent stump grinders at tooll rental places, I REALLY do not recommend it - the rental ones you can afford to rent for one use are pretty light duty, and they can chew a person up in no time flat if you lose control when it snags in the wood or hits a rock.

3) Another way is to go out to where the massive roots taper off to something you can reasonable cut - say 4-6 inches in diameter, and cut them all in a circle around the stump, then with a come-along or CAREFULLY (not more than a few hundred pounds) with a vehicle with a trailer hitch, put a steady pull on a good rope or strap or chain in a shallow notch cut around the top of the stump (so it does not pop off easy), then while it is being rotated up out of the ground walk around and cut any root you see still attached or trying to lift out of the ground. This works much better if the stump is left about 4-6 feet high so you get some real leverage on it with the pull, but if already cut down short run chain or strap over the top of it and around a large root on the far side of the stump. I use a Sawzall with foot long coarse tooth wood cutting blade for this - goes through roots really fast, and blade is only $1 or so apiece so ruining one or two hitting rocks is no big thing, and also reaches in under the stump better and safer than an axe. I helped a neighbor take out a back yard full of birches this way - took us about half a day to remove about 15 trees with about 6 foot diameter circle of crown and roots, leaving holes about 1-2 feet deep where each tree was. Remember this - whichever way you use to take it out, you will need maybe 1-5 wheelbarrow loads of good growth medium to replace the divot. 

4) Cheaper route - cut off flush with ground level (or leave some stickup as a planter or stool or feeder base or whatever), and plant new tree at least 4 feet away from old crown, in a spot between the old roots.

'Reasonable' is one of those words that means wildly divergent things to different people.  Check with your local high school to see if they have  any sort of agricultural program.  If yes, perhaps someone in that program could help you.  Being a landscaper myself, I must say it sounds like you want something that is - first and foremost - cheap.   This is NOT the best way to look for any service.  You would be better served looking for 'competant' than with 'cheap'.  The nicer you want your flowerbed to look, the more important it is to find someone who REALLY knows what they are doing.

Natural stones will have some degree of variance given the lack of pre-made consistency.


1/2" is too much from stone to stone and should be able to be fixed with additional leveling sand. 




Lakefront Landscaping reviews in Greensboro


This company came highly recommended. They seem very knowledgable and environmentally conscious. We have been pleased with their work. There have been a couple of small things that are annoying. Once, the service provider called my cell phone and left a message, but never rang the bell. We were home and he could have saved us all significant effort. Another time, someone came out for a problem, but the work order did not detail the specific problem we had called about. Again, a small problem, but he wasted his time investigating something that was already being addressed and then having to refocus on the problem at hand.
- Anne B.

This company was supposed to come out and do a consultation with me for a pond. I paid them $60 upfront and they blew me off twice and now will not respond. They said they would send me my money back and I still have not received it and that was over 3 weeks ago.
- Frank P.

This company continued throughout the summer 2015 to give me poor service with my property. They did not weed, prune, left small limbs and debris in my yard that they supposedly were to pick up per the contract, and missed several places where the grass was not cut or the mower blades were dull. My rocky areas in my ditch were not sprayed for weeds, but one time, then had to request for them to do it this last time, which there were minimal weeds to
Greensboro Lakefront Landscapers Provider Name Locked
the second go around, and they could have simply taken care of it. The lawn guy ran over our mat in front of our home this summer and they had to have it replaced. Last summer one of their lawn guy that was fired actually fried areas in front of our flower beds and around a tree and bush, which they had to come out and replace with new grass. While they took care of those problems, whenever I complained to Garden Guys in
Greensboro Lakefront Landscapers Provider Name Locked
about the lawn issues, this year of weeds, trimming, missed areas, etc. this summer all I was told is "Ok we will fix it." I thought, oh ok, they'll send someone out immediately to fix the problems. Wrong. I thought maybe they would send a manager to see the discrepancies, "Never happened this summer." They failed to send any manager to take a look at their lawn guys work when I made complaints about the weeds, trimming, etc., and we still have weeds in our flower beds and areas missed buy the lawn guys. I even sent them pictures of the problem areas. The problems unfortunately were not fixed even though we paid for it. In our contract ant control was in there, unfortunately they never took care of the ants either. My 3 bushes were not maintained/trimmed like they should have been either, had to actually go ask them to do it, which is in the contract for them to do. Why should we have to ask, should be done automatically per contract. At the end, this year they jacked up my rate to $190.00 per cut, when last year it was $75.00. I honored my side of the contract, but unfortunately this Summer, Grounds Guys let me down big time with their quality. They did a great job during the first few cuts last Summer when we hired them, but after that, hang it up. Aggravating to get them to do the work properly. I would have escaped from them earlier, but was in the contract and I was hoping that they would improve. Completely appreciate them charging me 2 1/2 times what I paid last year, from $75.00 to now $190.00, made my decision a lot easier to find "Quality" lawn company that matched their pricing and offers the same services. If the new company simply does the lawn work of weed control, prune, trim bushes, I will stay with them for years. Grounds Guys, "Guys" caused them the problems at my home, not me the homeowner, however, corporate came down on me the customer. Why would I pay $190.00 for poor service?

He had the dead weeds removed and hauled away, making certain that the program was 100% within the boundaries of our property and our FWC permit.

was brimming with enthusiasm and ideas.Was enthusiastic to have us try her services.We set up time to "try her landscape services".She had expressed that she had definite openings in her schedule.
Day of service crew performed satisfactorily and she verbally agreed to assist us going forward. ...More /> One week later she does not call but writes she cannot assist us at all because she committed to another job . She does not have the courtesy to call after all the time we spent talking and committing to helping us. This was highly inconvenient as we spent quite a lot of time interviewing other service companies.This communication was inappropriate and felt very unprofessional. Now I understand when another landscape professional told us he had a similar experience with this individual. Potential customers beware.
