identified and solved a drainage and grading problem in our yard that had occurred over the years due to erosion and settling. He suggested" building up the soil around the area where the patio was to be installed rather than building up the level of the patio. This kept the cost of the patio and labor down considerably. The grading of our yard is slightly bermed up in areas and not completely flat or level, but
was able to
out a patio design that was well-suited to the area and looks great! His crew (
) worked very hard . They were always very courteous, professional and friendly. They cleaned up the area after each phase - deck and shrub removal, regrading with dirt, installing the patio and even laid fresh sod around the patio and area near the gate where they corrected the drainage. Everything was done neatly and in a timely manner. Overall they did a great job with everything! We would highly recommend
is very knowledgeable about the product and installation requirements as well as design. He always responded quickly to any of our questions or concerns. His crew does a great job! Our patio looks fantastic! (Our only negative comment would be regarding the Unilock bricks. There are still several with efflorescence which hopefully will dissolve soon., but overall the Unilock Brick Pavers are beautiful.)

"Excellent experience! We have no complaints whatsoever, only good things to say. We have recommended
to our neighbors and friends who need" similar work done. He is an honest business owner, very hard worker and his team are long term employees that we could trust. They work like a well-oiled MACHINE and get everything done on time and to specifications.

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.

Textured pavers are not smooth, but have a textured look that can prevent people from slipping while walking across them, says Wood. (Photo courtesy of Angie's List member George L. of San Francisco)

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 Winnebago


It was a great experience. Rich is very knowledgeable and understood what I needed for my landscape. After accepting his estimate he came with a crew that quickly and skillfully completed the work I needed. I highly recommend Rich and

When we agreed to the project with
Winnebago Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
, the estimated schedule was mid to late
Winnebago Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
. The week before the work was to start,we got a call from
Winnebago Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
confirming the work would start the following week. The timing was consistent with our expectations. We were told the work should be completed in 3 days, but it only took 2. The crew at our house seemed very efficient. They showed up early each day, went straight to work and knew exactl;y what to do. At the end of the project, they did an excellent job with the clean up.
In the end, the work that was done was excatly what
Winnebago Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
had told us and the quality was excellent. Both walkways look great!

To start, I do not write negative reports very often. This will be the second time in 12 years. We had a beautiful patio and seat wall installed 5 years ago by
Winnebago Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
Winnebago Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
. This past May I called to have the patio’s joint polymer sand redone (typical maintenance work) and was told by

Winnebago Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
, in charge of patio maintenance) would be handling this part of the business now. However,
Winnebago Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
turned out to be unresponsive to our needs over the past 10 weeks.
Upon first check in with
Winnebago Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
in early May, a site visit and estimate were provided. We also stated a
Winnebago Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
2 deadline due to hosting a
wedding on our patio. He assured us the maintenance would be complete by then. A few weeks later, we had to call back to follow up for scheduling, having not heard back from
Winnebago Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
Winnebago Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
was to relay a message for
Winnebago Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
to return the call. This never happened. Instead a crew showed up without an appointment and without
Winnebago Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
’s knowledge in the first week or so of June. Our patio wasn’t prepared for the power washing, furniture had to be moved last minute, and the weather forecast called for rain over the next few days which eventually
Winnebago Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
to poor setting of the polymer sand compound.
During the power washing, the crew was sloppy, as it resulted in damage to the patio and the surrounding herb garden. Rather than spraying out toward the lawn, they sprayed the polymer into the garden. The power spray also hit the patio bricks around the joints and affected to composite so that now the underlying white, discolored pebbly structure of the bricks is showing as the finish has worn off. This has affected the edges of around 80% of the bricks, resulting in an undesirable look to the patio overall. In addition, when the crew came back a week or so later after the joints had a
Winnebago Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
to dry (which they actually hadn’t) the application of the new polymer filling went poorly. There were a number of empty pockets throughout the patio, and even more stretches where the joint polymer didn’t set properly. This has resulted in sandy stretches where the joints are eroding and the patio has a gritty feel. Needless to say we are very disappointed in the results.
Throughout this challenging process we tried to contact
Winnebago Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
about our concern over how the project was being managed. His response was that this was
Winnebago Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
’s project, and
Winnebago Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
would follow up.
Winnebago Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
never came by in response to our first complaints about the power washing job. He finally came out around June 18 and was very surprised to see that the joint polymer hadn’t taken properly and assured us they would fix it as soon as they could. Regarding the wearing out of the patio bricks themselves,
Winnebago Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
claimed that this was to be expected during power washing. However, this was never explained to us in advance or we may have requested a different approach.
Winnebago Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
’s visit six weeks ago, we haven’t heard back from
Winnebago Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
to schedule repair to the failed maintenance. The wedding proceeded despite the problems. We have called several times to see when they would be out. Most recently my wife called on
Winnebago Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
21 and 22, leaving messages for
Winnebago Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
, but he has yet to return the calls.
I understand that the early part of this summer has had unprecedented rain and this likely has delayed projects. However, as a business owner myself, I understand that communication is a customer service responsibility. This is clearly another failure for
Winnebago Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
. Not only do they have a poorly performed maintenance job that they have no desire to repair, but also a business owner that prefers to pass the buck to his employee, who himself is unresponsive. It seems after spending $13K on the
original project, when it comes to
Winnebago Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
upkeep we are forgotten. The patio is one of our favorite places but this experience has tainted it.


Winnebago Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
has really been a pleasure to work with. He's smart, likable, and a very hard worker. we've made numerous changes along the way and he's taken it in stride. Anything that we felt like was his mistake he rectified at no cost to us. He's very creative and came up with his own designs, eliminating the cost of a landscape designer. He's completely transformed our 18,000 sf yard. Now that phase 1 (the hardscaping and landscape redesign is almost done), we're about ready to move on to phase 2 (the planting design). I've really enjoyed working with
Winnebago Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
and we're already thinking about what we might do next year. (Rain water harvesting system? Permeable driveway pavers?)
Winnebago Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
is very creative and entrepreneurial. He's made
Winnebago Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
into a full service company that can do it all-- landscape design; hardscaping; retaining and sitting walls; masonry; planting design and installation; fencing; lighting; irrigation; and on an on.

If you are considering hiring
Winnebago Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
.....don't DO IT! I hired him to do a job that was supposed to last one day, two at most.....he did NOT complete in two days, came back another two days then didn't show back up for a few weeks!!! He showed up late EVERY DAY then left early, had a
Winnebago Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
of his stop by for coffee, took long lunch breaks. Not to mention the work that he did was not acceptable - he was supposed to dig up an area for a patio and walkways with proper pitch and grading, properly regrade the backyard and dig for landscaping....needless to say NONE of that was done properly and I have a patio that gets a HUGE water issue with a major puddle on the patio when it rains. I addressed the issue and he is NOT taking any of the responsibility and will not fix it nor will he return a portion of my money. (I paid him in full before it rained and knew that there was a grading issue.) Now I have to hire another person who actually knows how to properly grade a backyard so there is not a water issue on my patio - which will cost me more money. This guy is completely sarcastic, rude and either doesn't care about doing a job properly or he doesn't know how to do his job properly....either way, he could care less and does not stand behind his work at all. He doesn't even bring his own water to a job site and expects the homeowner to supply him with something to drink when he's thirsty. He is also very nosey and snooped in my garage and showed up at my house when I wasn't there without notice or permission.

Now I know why he doesn't advertise his last name "
Winnebago Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
" and only addresses himself as "
Winnebago Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
" He gets two thumbs down and an "F" in my book!
- Nancy B.

All he did was spray weeds, he did not remove them and he missed a lot of them. He left the stump of the tree, and left an entire branch in the back. He didn't trim down any bushes, and now we get to look at an ugly stump, the same weeds...they're just dead weeds now. I called to ask him to come back out and was greeted with hostility. He said he would "check his schedule" and call me back. He didn't. I called again and spoke to
Winnebago Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
. She was incredibly rude and said that
Winnebago Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
did do the work and that they have before and after pictures, which is absolutely ridiculous. The yard is still a mess and I'm so upset that we paid these people $140 for nothing. DO NOT HIRE THEM!
- Maria C.

My husband called one morning to tell me he bought a bunch of boulders and to figure out where I want them placed. I was annoyed and alarmed, as I generally like to research and plan before large purchases. When
Winnebago Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
delivered the boulders he also gave us an estimate for cleaning up and re-landscaping our pool area, which had been neglected for years and was overgrown with weeds. While it concerned me that he had no Angie's list history, he was upfront about wanting to build his reputation up and also showed us his brother's landscaping business, which he had been a part of until he became independent. His assessment of our yard was reassuring. We have had various quotes for a clean up that we were not happy with - some claimed that having the sheet under gravel will end weeds for good, while others claimed it would be a complete waste.
Winnebago Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
explained that while yes, eventually we will get weeds over the sheet, it would greatly reduce and slow the weeds enough to make them manageable in other ways. Other companies would have buried or only cleaned around the large river rocks that once formed a dry riverbed (but were beginning to sink into the soil) but
Winnebago Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
said his guys would remove, clean up, and re-locate those rocks into the new landscape, and he did a spectacular job. The boulders looked fantastic - They all look like they've been there all along. My husband's best impulse-buy ever!
