"We are fairly happy with the work done, however there are some bad "banana" boards used to build the , the staining was not done" well (only 1 coat), and the cement put down to hold the patio in place has already separated from the patio bricks. Our biggest issue is with the invoicing. We were over charged by $287. We discovered this over charge after we gave our check for the full cost of the job. I contacted on May 7 about the discrepancy, and on May 8 he said he would get us a check for the over payment. I contacted 2 more times, on 6/14 and 7/9. Both times he promised he would send a check for the over payment the next day. It is now 20 and we still have not received a check for the amount we overpaid. I will take the company to small claims if they don't refund our over payment, but going through all that hassle to correct their mistake is very frustrating. They are so unresponsive I have no faith they will fix any problems that arise with the patio or , even though they promise a 5 year warranty. I would caution anyone against using this company due to the frustration we are experiencing. The time, hassle, and frustration aren't worth it.

"We had a very hot and cold experience with Landscaping. They were very responsive when we first asked for a quote to remove numerous shrubs" and redo all of the landscaping in front of our house. The estimate came back quickly and was very reasonable compared to other companies. At that point, we wanted to change some of the plants used in the estimate. It took between 3 weeks to a month to get any further response with our changes. We would call on his cell, call the main office, and email but get no meaningful response. Then, responded, made the changes, provided the new estimate, and got his crew out in less than a week to do the work. I am not sure what caused the difference between the times when was incredibly responsive and the period where he was totally unresponsive. The work itself looks great. was very willing to work with us, listen to our thoughts on what we wanted, and put together a beautiful landscape that captured exactly what we wanted and made it look even better than we had imagined. His crew left a few branches from some shrubs they removed which they could have disposed of, left a very large landscaping stone in the yard instead of in the landscaping, and moved our hose from the backyard to the frontyard without returning it when they finished. They also broke a feature on our hose nozzle. Other than those couple small problems, it was great to work with .

Creating a unique look for your yard means more than just cut grass, trimmed shrubbery and pretty flowers. Hardscaping, the creation of any man-made structures on your lawn, is just as crucial for overall appearance.

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.

Hardscaping reviews in Madison


don't waste your time with these guys. My wife and I took a couple of hours of personal time off work each to be there for the meeting with . No one showed, no one called. I'd like a refund for the time off we took from work.
- Eric B.

We had to reschedule the appointment a few times due to weather, but once the work began they were in and out in just over two hours. They were flexible with us changing the pattern on them at the day before insulation and everything went smoothly. The end product looks great.
- Derek P.

listened to all of our wants and needs. Phone calls and emails were responded to quickly. He was willing to make sure everything was done by a certain date even with our last minute change requests. The quality is amazing and the look is perfect for our small yard. Just put our yard and patio to bed for the season. There hasn't ...More been a day that has gone by since finished our patio, fire pit and the surrounding yard that I haven't said a silent thank you for all that he did to make it what it is. is a magician.
- Dianne B.

is wonderful to work with - clear, thoughtful and precise. He works hard as he chafes by the hour and he makes every hour count.
- Vicki G.

The are best price, always on time, very nice, easy to reach, never had a billing issue. Would highly recommend.
- Todd B.

I hired Nick to plow the driveway and parking lot of my commercial building in the winter of 2012. I called him in December 2013 to find out if he wanted to continue to plow it in 2013. He never called me back. I saw him plowing the driveway and parking lot next door to my building one day and I asked if we wanted to continue ...More to do mine. He said yes and he plowed the driveway and parking lot that day. During the next snowfall I cleared the snow from the driveway and I left him a message telling him that I still needed the parking lot plowed. He did not plow the lot and he did not return my call. I know a lot of folks don't check their voice mail, so I sent him a text message. No response. I ended up clearing the lot myself with a snow blower. Two voice mail messages, two text messages and two messages through his website later and I have still not heard from him.
He did a god job last year, but I need a contractor who will return my calls.
- Josh M.

I was extremely impressed with the work ethic, knowledge, care and professionalism of everyone who worked on the project over the week they were here. These guys know what they're doing!During demolition, there was very little room to maneuver the bobcats between the wall being torn down and my neighbor's garage and deck, but these guys were ...More pros all the way. They also left a clean work site every night, which was no easy task.The employees who built the new wall did an incredible job that required a lot of hand-digging and absolute accuracy to make sure the new wall stayed inside my property line. They also incorporated an attractive curve and steps that show creativity and pride of workmanship. I added some landscaping to the original project and I'm very pleased with the way they planted the trees (to make sure they were aesthetically pleasing) and regraded and mulched one side of the house. The final price was in keeping with the estimate and with the price quoted me as I added the landscaping. Overall, I'd give 's an A+ (which I don't hand out easily).
- Teel H.

Overall, it was a perfect experience! From start to finish the process was smooth and a complete success. This was our first time using as I found them on Angie's List, and the reviews here are accurate. was our landscape architect and from the 3 different bids and plans I received, he listened ...More the most closely to what I wanted and for all that the plan included by far it was the best price and certainly the most creative. was very responsive to questions and modified the plan as necessary to fit our budget. Another aspect that we appreciated is that they have a big crew, so the project didn't drag on and on for weeks...they were done with the grading and hardscaping within 3 days. was our foreman and he kept us informed of their progress and made great suggestions.
We have done several building and landscaping projects in the past (on different homes) and provides truly excellent service...we will definitely be using them again!
