"This was the first time I received yard maintenance / tree services from
and I was not disappointed.
was prompt." He arrived a few minutes before his scheduled appointment time, which I appreciated. It allowed him to survey the area that needed the most work. I could have had him come out before hand for a quote but my schedule did not allow for the additional time. He was able to give me an affordable price. He assured me
' pricing is consistent with other local company prices but I found it to be less expensive, actually.
is not only punctual but also precise. The trees in my yard have never looked better. Even though he was busy at work he answered all of my questions about the importance of tree maintenance.
was very mindful of my adjoining neighbors. He was careful to prevent debris from entering their yards.
actually removed all the leaves, branches, and even the tiniest of sticks from my lawn after the trimming was complete. Clearly he is detail oriented and I'm confident in his skills as an Arborist. The quality of his work and obvious care he puts into each task are evident. I am planning on having them return annually to continue upkeep and care for my trees.
went over the stump removal strategy with me and helped me understand the best option. He had all the necessary equipment and preformed each job with utmost safety in mind. I'm now certain
is the best company for the job.
took all the appropriate steps to protect my lawn during the stump removal. He also hauled off all the tree trimmings as well as the stump. I should also mention
is skillful at selecting native and adaptive plants. I'll be sure to add pictures of the gardens in full bloom. I'm looking forward to spring and summer now that I have a well maintained yard with hardy drought resistant plants to liven it up. Honestly, my "outdoor living space" is now amazing. It doesn't do it any justice to simply refer to it as a yard anymore. It is my hope that once you've read my review you will be confident in your decision to use
. I understand using a new service is always unnerving. You shouldn't feel that way when contacting
. Rest assured they have the experience, equipment, and valid insurance you want when hiring someone to care for your trees and lawn. The office staff are also very helpful and courteous. I'm so sure you'll be just as happy as I am with
and the owner,
, that I highly recommend them to anyone needing yard and/or tree maintenance in
and the surrounding areas. One last thing, while it wasn't a service I requested,
noticed my mail box was leaning to one side due to wood rot. He went to his truck and pulled out a 2' x 4' and fixed my mail box just to be nice... no additional charge. I offered to pay the cost of materials, at least. He said he enjoyed answering all my questions about maintaining the integrity of my existing trees and that was payment enough for the mail box repair. To summarize
is an outstanding company and I am more than pleased with all the services rendered.

"It went extremely well. Project was delivered on schedule and budget. Once the project began it continued smoothly and finished on time. We appreciated this as it" reduced disruption and met our timing needs to have the project done before guests arrived.
's crews are always polite, efficient, and clean up after themselves. We have had

have always been beautiful and functional and we are happy to recommend this firm.

The sound and movement of water is transforming, especially in the garden. Angie's List contractors discuss home water features that can liven up your yard, such as fountains, ponds and waterfalls.

Jo Ellen Myers Sharp, the Hoosier Gardener, gives advice on how to winterize water features in the yard. Preparing features such as water gardens, ponds, waterfalls for winter helps avoid damage from freezing and thawing water.

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.

and his wife
Kansas City Fountain Installers Provider Name Locked
were responsive, prompt, courteous, and pleasant to deal with. The pump cost approximately $100 so I believe that the overall price was fair.
- Susanne F.

They were fantastic! They answered my phone call and came out to my property
within 24 hours to give me a free estimate. They were knowledgeable on
the type of tree needing removal and why it had died. They made sure my house and roof
was not compromised during the whole process. Would definately recommend this service.

has cleaned and maintained our rather large waterfall fountain for about 12 years. He always leaves the fountain in immaculate condition. He is responsive to our concerns. He is prompt to respond to any problems. His service is certainly economical. I would recommend

& Spa n without reservation.
- Robert D.

this was a disaster from the very beginning. He kept promising he would be there to hang the lights and after 3 or 4 promises, finally made it. I gave
Kansas City Fountain Installers Provider Name Locked
instructions on where I wanted the lights and where specifically I didn't want them. He chose to put them where he wanted them, ignoring the diagram I had given him. Because of his error, he tried to charge me more than his original quote. I had to contact him multiple times to get him to take down the lights and he finally did yesterday.
I would not ever use this company for anything. Very unreliable. In part due to just a 1 guy show with hired help and when he is sick or truck broken, unable to do the work.
- Brenda D.

He did really well. You can tell he really cares about his business.
Kansas City Fountain Installers Provider Name Locked
and his workers seem to really enjoy their job and take pride in their work. The price was reasonable, and we still use them for routine maintenance.
- Sarah P.

This project began with a home meeting with Mr.
Kansas City Fountain Installers Provider Name Locked
, discussing our wants. He met back with us once he had completed his
design. He included multiple price points of each phase which I found quite helpful. We made our selections and agreed to

Prior to any groundbreaking, I made some design changes. (This was a learning process for us and the more we learned, the more we wanted to learn before committing to the final product.) I have to say that
Kansas City Fountain Installers Provider Name Locked
was as excited about our new ideas as we were. He was not offended in the least about the changes and he made sure that he understood exactly what we wanted.

Throughout the entire project
Kansas City Fountain Installers Provider Name Locked
maintained an easygoing and helpful manner with us. He is obviously well-respected by his subcontractors (who were also easy to work with). He was patient throughout the process and encouraged us to ask questions. He wanted us involved intimately from beginning to end. We truly felt that his main concern was that we were happy with the project.

We already plan to work with

on our next project.

They were great. The fountain was not running and had a terrible algae problem. They arrived as scheduled and quoted me a price. The returned when scheduled and got the fountain running perfectly. The were great.
- Paul M.

I contacted

to inquire about snow removal. We made a date for a walk through.

no showed two times but finally made it out. He seemed professional and knowledgable and said he'd get me an estimate. That was in September. I never did get an estimate.
Kansas City Fountain Installers Provider Name Locked
