"The contractor was very swamped with other business initially but once finished it looked great. There was a mixup in communications between the foreman and the" workers resulting in the initial product not meeting what was originally agreed on. However, subsequent correspondence with
, the owner, corrective actions were taken and now it looks even better than originally envisioned. I know the price was good because when we originally sought bids, another contractor was surprised to find how affordable the bid was from COC. I would use them for other projects in the future, either at our present location or if we move.

-Mary G.

and his team showed up early in the morning and completed the job by lunch time. He was there on site during the job and was very responsive" throughout the entire process. The patio looks incredible and he and his team reseeded the worn areas of the lawn created by the install. I would definitely use them for any of my needs in the future.

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 Canterbury


Villium arrived to do the estimate on time and was very professional. Materials/pavers were delivered about 3 weeks later. Three days after the pavers were delivered Villium himself delivered the base materials.. and an hour later four workers showed up to do the job. They were finished this after noon.. looks beautiful.
- Sandra and Dennis T.

We are beyond thrilled with our paver patio and fire
pit. We wanted our new outside space to be functional and fun, and not look like just another paver patio.
Canterbury Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
had us sold when he spent over an hour with us just talking and listening to how we wanted to use the space. He gave us great ideas about the placement and flow of the patio. We loved the design he provided us, and he had a real vision for what the space would look
like. He made our patio truly custom by using the same stone we have around our fireplace in the family room and the
brick that our house is made of. He added features to the design that no other contractor thought about – a bar
area around the grill, boulders strategically placed, added in the landscaping and the landscaping lights. We could not
wait for our patio to be installed.

and the crew were great to work with. I have never seen a construction crew of any
kind work so meticulously and hard. These guys were working during the hottest of hot this summer. Every night they cleaned up everything – tools, garbage, the work area. They took are of the site as well as the yard around it.
We could not be happier with the finished project. We love every aspect of the patio – the stone and brick, the curves of the patio, the different paver materials, the boulders, the landscaping, the landscaping lights….. It was truly amazing.

It went so well! We are really happy with the results. The patio area looks wonderful and it's clear that these guys really know what they're about with pavers. The crew was here early every day, worked right along and cleaned up nicely when they were all done.
Canterbury Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
was especially helpful with all the choices that need to be made during a project like this; the whole crew was concerned with getting everything the way we wanted it.
What more can we say - the project was completed on time, on budget, and we got what we wanted. The crew was a nice bunch with a great attitude, worked hard and seemed to enjoy what they do. We'd hire them again in a NY minute. You should, too!
Thanks, EcoQuality!
- Ric E.

They were very professional, call us back and came to the appointment on time, they give us suggestions and were very good. We are going to wait to do the work because we will build a pool in the back yard first, but they are one of our option to execute the work in a few months.

was very responsive and they were quick to give me an estimate. Their price is very reasonable and they are true professionals in their field. Once an appointment was set,
Canterbury Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
was very clear if it had to be changed for any reason (weather, etc). The team itself was very punctual and answered every question I had. When I wanted clarification on the process/design, the team was very patient in explaining it to me and my brother.

It is refreshing to work with such a professional team and trust that they will do an excellent job. The added section on the driveway and the walkway look great and the team completed both portions in 2 days. I'm happy to have found a company that is easy to deal with, reasonably priced, and does a professional trustworthy job. I'll definitely be using them in the future should I need landscaping performed.
- Patrick M.

The crew was on time. They had to remove a large section of lawn to prepare area for concrete. It was a very hot day - 102 degrees - and they worked steadily. In removing lawn, they broke a sprinkler pipe but repaired it and tested it the next day before pouring concrete. Cleaned up area and street before leaving both days.

The experience with

and the end result exceeded our expectations. We received several bids, but decided to go with

because he provided the best solution for our specific situation. His quote was detailed in explaining everything that would be done and he followed up with additional information when we asked. Since our backyard is difficult to access we were concerned about damage to our property.

installed a good sized paver walkway from my front door wrapping around to my breezeway door and the driveway (325 sq feet). They also paved and enlarged my driveway (which is rather large at 2 car widths by over 160 feet long with an additional parking pad so around 3100 sq feet).

is the owner and he is very good to work with. When scheduling,

promised the work to be done by October 15th and they got it done over a week early. I liked their attention to detail and desire to get everything right.
The pavers we chose were Nicolock pavers and they look great. The installation was done beautifully; they cut the stones into a curve where needed with a soldier pattern border that looks great. They put topsoil fill in where it was needed and graded it nicely.

also stucco'd my foundation which had multiple cosmetic problems like hairline cracks in the sand finish, paint splatter from old paint jobs, and a couple of larger cracks. The foundation probably looks better than it did in '53 when the house was built. Nice job.
The driveway was widened to two car widths and a parking pad alongside my garage was added also. Where the walkway joined the asphalt driveway the seam was flawless. I was there all day watching the crew
