" is a little spark plug... unbelievable energy on tap... uses quality ingredients that are expensive. If you don't" mind paying for it, you get it... They deliver on time, they were able to get through my gates with their small truck and the dump bed delivery driver was able to put it on target with little fuss... no damage... exactly as we wanted it.

-Rose A.

" soil Mix #3 killed all the garden and landscaping plants. We called them repeatedly over a 5 week period and told them about the contaminated" soil. Their employee came and took soil samples to be tested yet they issued a general denial and did not address the evidence. They have provided terrible customer service and we have been denied a summer harvest from the garden and cost us approximately $1,200 in plants and labor. We must now remove the contaminated soil ourselves - not an easy job. We are very disappointed that the owner, Lowinger, has acted in bad faith despite our giving him and his company many opportunities to do the right thing and honor their guarantee on the product. We are seeking restitution through the courts. We do not recommend this company.

man shoveling mulch

Mulch & Wood Chips

Mulch can be a lot of different things, but at its core it exists as a material that is applied to landscaping, walking paths and flower beds for aesthetic purposes, to suppress weed growth, retain moisture and supply nutrients to soil through decay.

one-story home on a hill with green lawn

Here's how to jump start your spring lawn and landscape projects.

Landscapers mulch to moderate soil temperature, conserve moisture, suppress weeds and to add organic matter to the soil as the shredded bark breaks down.

Looking to add some mulch to your landscaping?

"We are now able to enjoy the backyard with friends and family. The kids have somewhere to play, the family can roast marshmallows or just enjoy some music and a cold beverage." (Photo courtesy of Angie’s List member Tim Kelly of Huntersville, N.C.)

Is your yard so sloped, it's unusable?

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.

I've been familiar with &D Property Services for a while now since they maintain the property at my family's business. I was in desperate need for some lawn care at my own home so I decided to call with &D. I explained what I wanted (lawn cut, driveway blown off, ...More trim up the bushes; etc). They happened to be close enough by that they were able to go by that same morning and take care of it. I've paid people to do lawn work before and it's looked "okay", but WOW oh WOW - &D did a FANTASTIC job! They really went above and beyond - they didnt skimp on anything - you can tell they really take pride in their lawn care services. I would highly recommend them and plan on using them in the future!
- Rebecca T.

I have only gotten a quote for the work to be done but they appear to be very knowledgeable and have been very responsive. They are leveling my road (dirt road) today and putting down crushed concrete. This is phase one. They are then going to put down sprinkler systems in my front yard and my lot next door. They are also going to sod my front ...More yard. May just seed the lot next door since it is so large. This will all be done in phases. Check back in a couple of months.
The road has been completed. They did an excellent job. I have had the well pump installed, the well house built and electricity run to the pump and well house. Electric was done by Crown Enterprise ( ) and they did an excellent job.
The next project for is to remove all grass and weeds in the yard, put in a new sprinkler system and then sod and mulch the yard. I'll keep you posted.

- Linda S.

It was GREAT! I first found this company on the internet and gave them a call Friday afternoon. I spoke with and explained what we needed done. He offered to come out the next day (Saturday) and take a look at our site and give me an estimate. He showed up early and told me what he thought it might cost. After confirming with ...More his boss ( ) he called me back and we set up a time for them to come the next day.

They showed up a little late, but that was because their previous job ran over. Once they got here, they got to work right away. Within ten minutes the pine tree was down and they had cut off the branches to the palmetto. Then they brought in this really cool remote-controlled stump grinder. It made short work of the huge palmetto stumps, and also the 5 or so tree stumps that were left. They tilled the soil so it's ready for us to sod. They completed the whole job in under two hours! This is something that would have taken MANY man hours by my husband to complete alone.

They were great to work with -- nice, respectful and enjoyable to talk to. We will definitely use them again should the need arise. I would highly recommend them for a tree/stump removal project.
- Jon S.

This job was not complex, but it was a lot of back breaking work. The owner of the company and his co-worker came on time, and did a great job. I told them exactly what I wanted, and they completed the job in a timely manner. I would have liked them to put down some weed prior to putting down the weed ...More , but I didn't ask for it, so I guess I got ONLY what I asked for. I have found it really hard to find anyone in Jacksonville thats willing to do the job right the first time, on time, but these guys are an exception. I will use them again if needed. Overall I had 5 areas in my yard done. $300 covered lava rock removal, weeding, weed , and mulch.
- Jeffrey M.

. Fry, the proprietor, also does a lot of the work. He contract employs additional help as needed. He responded to my call which is more than can be said for another larger company I contacted. He came on time to provide the estimate. He showed up only a couple of hours late on the day he promised to do the work because of ...More work pending for another customer. knows his stuff with sod. He does not have a lot of fancy equipment. He just works with hand tools and on his hands and knees to do sod installation. It looks good and all pieces are alive a week later. When a or two of sod was defective call his supplier and secured replacement. He got more than we needed so he gave it to me to sod another area. seems to enjoy hand pulling weeds the most. I liked his attitude an work so much that I have hired him to do my weekly yard mowing, shrubbery trimming and weed control. My only concern on the job was that he showed up without a chain saw to cut large limbs. He said he had loaned his saw to a friend who had not yet returned it. Somehow he did the job with a small electric reciprocating saw. I believe is well qualified for the small to medium home landscaping and sodding job He probably needs more permanent crew for very large yards. Good man
- W S.

After trying 3 other lawn care businesses I finally found a company that shows up when they say they will and does a great job! The owner, , is fantastic to work with and they do impeccable work. I highly recommend them.
- Steven B.

They were outstanding. The owner works for customer satisfaction. They were very prompt and certitudes. The mulch was excellent. They really go above and beyond to make sure your satisfied with their service.
- Kimberly B.

They pulled out all the old plants, worked the soil, and planted all new plants and mulch. They fixed a drainage problem we had in the front. They fixed/added the sprinklers needed to water all the new plants. Everything was done as discussed.
