"Very reliable, responsive and knowledgeable. Answers telephone messages and shows up on time for the job. Everything looked great after he completed the work. Definitely" would hire him for other landscaping needs in the future.
's Lawncare is definitely worth a try!

-Kathleen L.

was an absolute pleasure to work with through both phases as well as the landscaping crew. They were communicative and punctual and after" each day they completely cleaned up the project area as well as completely hosing down and cleaning our driveway and any areas of use. In our initial meeting with
, we gave him a run down of the changes we wanted to make.
picked out the stone shapes and colors for us and when I went to look at the materials prior to phase one, I was very pleased with his selections. His choices look absolutely beautiful in our backyard. The colors complement our existing stamped patio, our house color and a new Trex deck on the horizon.
will be our go to landscaping company for years to come!

How to find the right landscaper

There are several things to look for when hiring someone to work in your landscape.

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.

Landscaping reviews in Grabill


My consultation with
Grabill Landscaping Companies Provider Name Locked
greatly exceeded my expectations about could be accomplished in just a two hour session. Because of his creativity and knowledge of plants, he was able to completely design a front yard that will be less thirsty and much, much more attractive than what we've had.
Using our preferred color palette, he selected and sited plants, suggested replacement hardscaping, and solved the design problems of our entrance-way courtyard. We now have a very detailed plan that can be submitted to the contractors he recommended we get bids from.
He gets our highest recommendation!
- Susan N.

Called several times over 2 weeks. My mower broke and I have been trying to find a lawn care service for over a month. I had several atrociously high quotes ($600!). Their quote was good - $185. Nice gentleman to talk to, but most of the time you can not speak with him because his VM is full. Mostly talked via texts. Said he would come last week (10/01/15), we unlocked the gate and after I texted a comment about the yard, he called back to say since the storms are coming, he would rather wait. This I can understand, but he waited until 5 p.m. on the day he was supposed to do the work. Said we would keep in contact over the weekend to see if things dried out. On Sunday, said he wanted to do the work on Wednesday. I said ok. I unlocked the gate- no call, no show, no response to text. I'm done. Will not hire. Do not want call back.

Working with
Grabill Landscaping Companies Provider Name Locked
and his team of designers and project personnel at
Grabill Landscaping Companies Provider Name Locked
was a treat. They were professional, skillful, experienced, punctual and most importantly customer service focused.
Everything started with a call with the owner
Grabill Landscaping Companies Provider Name Locked
. He listened to what we were after and recommended a course of action. This was especially helpful as we are new home owners (having always lived in pre-landscaped codominiums previously) and
Grabill Landscaping Companies Provider Name Locked
walked us through the whole procedure which made us feel very comfortable.
Next we met with a designer who took our (fuzzy and dynamically changing) vision and created a landscape blueprint which was followed to a "T" by the project personnel that came in a few weeks later to complete the work.
The work crew was

by a foreman that was present at every important stage of the project. The individuals were professional, prompt, and cleaned up after themselves at the end of every day.

Did great. Would definitely use
Grabill Landscaping Companies Provider Name Locked
again. Extremely polite, professional and knowledgeable. We unfortunately will not know for sure if his wok will actually do the trick until we get our next huge downpour (inches per hour). But I was very happy with
Grabill Landscaping Companies Provider Name Locked
and his entire crew's work. Am already recommending him to neighbors.
- Warren S.

We were very impressed with
Grabill Landscaping Companies Provider Name Locked
and his team. He contacted us immediately and came out to give us an estimate within days. He was professional, punctual and knowledgeable. He told us that he was not the most expensive but not the cheapest either. When we asked him why he was higher than the other estimates he explained the detail and quality of work he does. We were not disappointed! He and his team did a phenomenal job and it was definitely worth the money.
The men working for him were also professional, friendly and hard-working. They finished the work within 4 days and made sure that we were pleased with all the work before they left. Our neighbors loved his work as well and have asked for his number. We will be calling him for future projects and highly recommend him to anyone needing work on their home.

Weadock and his Monument Landscaping crew worked carefully and completed the job within the agreed time frame. He stayed within budget, completing all jobs under his estimated price, which seem reasonable. The design is very pleasing and well executed. Most of the plants are thriving in their new surroundings and we are happy with his work. We will ask Monument Landscaping to maintain the gardens and to plan and execute further projects in our yard.

and the young men who work with him provide impeccable service. Their work is of the highest quality, and it would satisfy even the most stringent perfectionist. My neglected flower beds were disreputable-looking with all the weeds in them, and

both removed all

genuinely cared about meeting and exceeding my requests. He carefully cut down a small tree, as well as some very tall tree branches protruding from my neighbor's tree, plus the tall branches of crape myrtles and privets touching my roof. He always called the night before he came to my house to advise an accurate time of arrival. Clean-up after work was completed left my lawn in pristine condition.

discusses the bill, which he itemizes, and he is careful not to add on & bill for additional services which have not been requested. However, when I wanted to add some additional items,

was able to do the extra work during the same visit. His pricing is fair, reflecting good value for services provided.

is honest, hard-working, personable, dependable, and a delight to deal with. I could not be more pleased with the outcome of the extensive work he did........a rave review is definitely in order!

These guys were fast and clean! It took some time for our tree to be removed (poison ivy and HOT weather) But the owner worked with me on a tight deadline and pulled it off. Already have recommended him to neighbors
