did everything he said he'd do. His crew works hard. The tree removal was the best I've ever seen. No grinding. Just dug up" the stump. No roots left at all. A couple small pieces of aluminum boarder were used to fill in small gaps. These pieces move out of place, so I wasn't thrilled with that. We are talking with him about other work and he said it was no problem to fix it.

take out our front yard grass and replace it with drought resistant plantings and new irrigation. Again the design was great and the installation went relatively smoothly. I have to say, though, that on balance,
is not a good value. His work is very expensive, as befits someone with a great design sensibility and extensive knowledge of horticulture. But
's company falls down on execution and customer service. For one thing,
is involved primarily at the beginning. Once installation begins, he disappears, and his crew takes over. The quality of work and the time and expense depend on them. When they are good, things go well. When they are not, they don't. Moreover,
does not return phone calls. You can leave multiple messages on his one phone line. His staff, including an office manager named
, never returns phone calls and never checks his email. If you call them and leave a message, they may get back to you within a week or they may never get back to you. With regard to the latest work, we told
that we would do it in two stages. We were supposed to speak when the second stage was to begin. Instead,
was on the verge of scheduling the work for a day when we were not going to be at home, and for a sizeable fee that we had not agreed upon. I had to reach out to him to cancel the work before it was undertaken. Finally,
's crew installed an irrigation system built by a company that has gone out of business. The irrigation system has malfunctioned on a couple of occasions, resulting in dead plants. When I've tried to schedule someone to come out and maintain the system, I have either not heard from
's crew when promised, or they show up when no one's around (our gates are locked and we work for a living). This, despite repeated phone messages and emails saying: Our gates are locked. Call before you come over. Now, it's been three weeks, our plants are still dying and
is nowhere to be found and no one is returning the voicemail messages. We're done.

How to find the right landscaper

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


Landscaping your property adds beauty, value and curb appeal. Start with a clear plan of what you hope to achieve, then decide if want to do it yourself or hire a professional.

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

People typically embark on home renovation projects with a mind toward increasing the value of their home for resale purposes.

Landscaping projects are about more than making your lawn area lush and inviting.

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.

will blame his sub-contractors for not showing up, or say his equipment broke down, or blame the weather, or come up with an infinite number of other excuses. In my case, many months went by with multiple excuses for not producing the work that I had already paid for. DO NOT be taken in by

was especially hard working, and took great pride and integrity when constructing the new walls, with attention to leveling, backfilling and securing the block. Did extensive repair of the lawn damaged during the process, including topsoil, seed and hay-- waiting for the grass to grow back.
- William G.

They performed only the work that was needed - didn't try to "add on" unnecessarily. On 9/1/15 they came back because we had a problem with the sprinkler working. It was an odd issue, it worked and then didn't work well. They suggested that the water pressure might be an issue and, because the problem was unusual, said that a second opinion might be a good thing to do as well. Although they thought that the other valves could be suspect and perhaps in need of replacement, the water pressure check was recommended.
After contacting the city, they came out and found that the water meter replacement performed on 8/18 was the issue!

is a business that endeavors to do the right thing instead of the most profitable thing - I highly recommend them to anyone.

We have several large Junipers that had died and poor drainage near a retaining wall. They designed a plan that would remove the junipers and drain the water away from the wall and suggested a ground cover. They also replaced the sod around our yard. The finished product was exactly what we wanted. The crew was professional and prompt.
