"This was a fantastic experience. returned my call promptly and came out within a few days to do an estimate. I showed him a few pictures" of what we were thinking; he discussed stone types and their pros and cons, particularly with regard to cost. He communicated with me regularly about the expected start date and came out a few days before the start of the work to go over the project with us. The work started Monday morning and was complete by Tuesday; he checked in to see if we were satisfied with the final project. It looks amazing, and exactly like what we had envisioned. I would recommend him without hesitation - first quality work, attention to detail and regular communication throughout the process. If only every contractor was like this!!

-K O.

"We were very fortunate to have had a team by G - his guys showed up on time every day, and in the hottest days of" August, they gave 100%. They made short work of breaking up the concrete slab and then making sure that the natural swale would find a different direction off the property. G is definitely the gold standard for landscape design - as they were placing the plants, he made a special effort to scope out the best vantage points from the driveway, from the back of our property, both sides and even from inside of our house, to make sure he gave us a great view from every direction and from each window that looks out onto the new area. should pride themselves in hiring friendly, approachable people - every one of them was easy to talk to, and they knew their stuff. kept their word on every aspect of the project, as promised, Project Managers Raido and regularly checked the progress, every phone call was immediately returned, and at the end of every day, the work area was totally cleaned up. My only complaint would be that it would've been nice to have had visit the project, introduce himself, and see for himself how hard his guys work. We realize our project wasn't a huge money maker for , but whatever the cost, their professionalism, dedication and timeliness speaks volumes about giving the customers their money's worth!

Lakefront landscaping

Landscaping can be a challenge in ordinary circumstances, but lakefront landscaping poses additional challenges from sloping and floodplain issues. What ideas will help you create your perfect lakefront escape?

It’s a simple concept: You want a beautiful lawn, but you also want to conserve 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. 




Lakefront Landscaping reviews in Hollywood


responded quickly and efficiently to my request for a job bid. He suggested a pattern that would include brick matching the house within the stonework. The work was done in a few days and all the mess cleaned up. removed the original brickwork remants as well. We were pleased and have no negative comments. ...More It's so wonderful not to have any issues.

- Tony L.

and one helper arrived early, and they put in several hard hours. The evergreen and other shrubs along with mulch fabric which had become one with the roots after being ignored for 15 years, was removed and hauled away. Oh, and a mess of lava rock too. Cleanup was perfect and they did exactly as I requested. I added a couple ...More last minute things over the original estimate of $400, and they cheerfully handled the work and the additional funds were very fair. The project was worked on until completion! I have asked them to do some additional work next spring, and I will certainly recommend them to others!
- ronald T.

Poor Communication, Jury Rigging with $3.00 bags of dry sakrete concrete mix as Weights for a teetering unstable floating pier. a small stereotypical job that should have been in and out. Outsourced or Subcontracted work out. Trying to bury and hide non-disclosed costs for " mobilization" after the fact due to their ...More inability to gain access with friendly neighbors direct access boat ramp. $3.00 dollar bags of sakrete used as weights then fell out into the waterway. then has nerve to state that: "Permit, and Finalization" was closed out and Approved. Payment needs to be made, and then they will try to send someone out. No Payment will be made AT ALL until Satisfactory Job and Floating section is stabilized. Plenty of issues were overlooked such as lack of communication and 24Hr Notice, Dropping of Material without Notice, placement of dropped materials on lawn when specifically told not too put on lawn or sprinkler system heads. It seems to me that & just want to do large monetary jobs and when it comes to single residential solutions. I personally would Look Elsewhere. I would not utilize again. Especially, after and his strongarming tactics.
- jason D.

Our future neighbors interviewed several vendors for themselves and us and suggested at . The build would be done while we were still living in Indianapolis. They were the only contractor that offered Trex man made decking product. The overall quality and method of construction was superior of one of ...More the other large contractors. drove pilings into the lake bed to support the structure. The other contractor had some method of using a high pressure hose to dig out holes for the support wood; not nearly as good as 's method which is the way docks are built on saltwater inlets, harbors.
gave both us and our neighbors a discount since we built at the same time. I think might be a little bit more expensive but the better quality is very evident.

- JIM J.

came over and looked at it and I had a written estimate in 1 day. The work was performed the next day. Excellent service and the work was done beautifully. I did not care for the color of a few stones and they replaced them without any argument even though the job was completely done. I would highly recommend ...More for their service and quality of work.
- David P.

very responsive - very professional & knowledgeable. they listened to my needs and did not try to 'upsell' me on more than i wanted.
we came up with a multi-year plan that allowed me a 'fresh start' with my property without having to do everything all at once.
the result was great. also ...More coordinated with other contractors ( eg; sprinkler system ) who also did a great job.
very satisfied - many complements from the neighbors
- Robert D.

Everything went very well. They were very responsive and would pre-empetively email me with every step of the project, including what tools they were bringing in, how long that part of the job would take and constantly making sure I would be I OK with their methods. A few deviations from my original plans were needed, but Co. ...More always made sure to bring ideas to me for approval before getting started. I am very pleased with the results and the final price was very close to the estimate provided long before work began, who've is always a pleasant thing. I highly recommend Co. to anyone who needs landscaping work, both large and small.
- Matt B.

I was on the verge of just getting rid of my pond. It had been neglected for so long and was so out of balance I just wanted it gone. I had too many little fish and I needed to start getting rid of them but they would hide in the water weeds that were growing in the pond. So my initial call was just to have clean it out enough ...More so I could begin to catch the fish and dismantle the pond. Well, and his son did such a fabulous job of cleaning my pond that I am now reconsidering! They cleaned out the , spray washed the rocks, and added healthy pond bacteria --it now looks even better than when it was new!! I am pretty sure my next call is to get some healthy plants and start a good maintenance program. And maybe next spring I will invest in some koi. I can't compliment them enough, they did an excellent job.
