After planting your new flowers, mulch the garden with two to three inches of fresh mulch, says Hudnall. (Photo courtesy of Angie's List member Christina W. of Detroit)

The end of summer doesn't have to end your beautiful flowerbed. Fall flowers can celebrate autumn in your yard.

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. 




Landscape Lighting reviews in Salisbury


As usual, they are reliable, courteous, and professional. cares for his customers as if they are family. I highly
recommend them. They also installed our light for the outside of our house and it has enhanced the appeal.

I called on 11/9/15 and spoke with about an estimate for Christmas light installation. He asked for my home details so he could look it up on google earth, and requested I text a picture of the front of my home in order to get a more accurate description. I received a reply to my picture text on 11/10/15 ...More at 11:28PM that said "I'm afraid that is too small of a house for me to do. I don't usually do projects that are less than $800. Sorry."
I live in a 2 story, 2100 square foot home. website does not state that they only serve very large homes or require a minimum investment of $800 for Christmas light installation. Further, the picture gallery of homes they have lit shows a variety of residences, including smaller single story ones. I was extremely disappointed in the lack of professionalism (late night text message) as well as not telling me when I gave him my address that he only served large homes that require an $800 minimum investment. Unless you have a mansion and do not mind working with a company who believes midnight text messages are business appropriate, stay away from this company.

My husband and I hired Visionary to landscape our back yard last fall. We spent over $11,000 for their work that was supposed to come with a one year guarantee. Once spring and summer came we started noticing that some of the plants/bushes weren't looking very healthy. We contacted them multiple times regarding these issues and they either sent ...More a cursory "they look fine to us" or when we sent photos of the now dead bushes multiple times we received no response - both via emails and phone calls.
Do not use Visionary if you are looking for a company that stands behind their guarantee!

Great experience with LLR. Arrived on time, knowledgeable and helpful. Will definitely use them again. Great find on Angie's List.

It went very well. We also had an outdoor water fountain wired in. He offered a approach, came when he said he would, and followed up with our concerns after the fact.
- Jonathon S.

They called me to confirm what we set up through the website. They didn't show up on the agreed upon day, but called me and rescheduled. I am happy with the price, service, and communication.

representative “ ” showed up the week of June

16th 2015 after I had called to have a valve that was stuck fixed. called my cell on the 19th and said he had time to

stop now and that he was on the way to my home. I wanted ...More to have the valve

fixed and met him at my house within 15 minutes. The issue was one section of sprinklers

would not turn off preventing progression to other sections to water lawn.

After showing him where the timer was and what happened when I turned the

system on and I spent 15 minutes looking for the valve box. After we found the valve box I was told by

he didn’t have any tools with him, his regular truck had been taken by

another employee for another job, the current truck he was driving had a

pliers. After looking at the valve box he determined that he was not familiar

with the system, was too old and would need help to fix the system. He said he would be back. I did leave the

gate and side garage door open so he had access at any allowing time for turf

tamers to repair system when they were available. Thus, per my request they returned when I

wasn’t at home so I have no way of tracking the time they were actually at my

house repairing the system. The system has been winterized the past 5 years or

so by and sprinkler heads repaired several times by the company in

the past. The system has worked well every year until they finished the job this summer. Although I did request one sprinkler head be repaired, I did not anticipate 7 being replaced, I was not notified that they

were replacing so many. They actually replaced one that

specifically had been capped by 2 years ago. The garden zone #11 was

working the day I was showing what was wrong with zone one. After the

repair was completed I turned the garden zone on and it ran for 4 hours before

we noticed it didn’t automatically turn off. I called in mid and they sent

someone out to review and at that time they replaced the zone 11 sprinkler head

and they sent out another person to repair and was informed everything was in working order but that the timer was

old and may need repair. The sequence of service is very confusing according to the

invoice supplied. I called requesting service on 6/15 , contacted me 6/19

and I met him at the house. charged 8.75 hours of time there working on a system he

admitted he didn’t know anything about, and at the first visit came with a

pliers only for the job. waived $200 as "good will" off the bill secondary to all the hours.

6/26 they came and did a trouble shoot for zone 11 and system and reported on the invoice “running well!” Yet

must have never really checked as the system was not running correctly

Thus, I went from one bad valve repair and one sprinkler

head replacement request to 11 hours of service, multiple sprinkler head

replacements, needing a new timer. All from a system that had been working

without any problems the past 20 years that I have lived in the house.

I have no idea if the hours are correct, I was not kept updated to what was needed, progress, or even when they had completed the job. The first I knew they were done and the “system running well” is when I received the invoice on 7/2/15. I started the system and found the system was not running well, new sprinkler heads required adjustment as they were not

sprinkling in the desired location, a capped sprinkler head was inappropriately replaced and now sprinkling the neighbor’s

lawn, I was not able to use the “well running” system the entire summer of 2015. I called and emailed, was told

“yes, I thought the hours were strange also” that was why they didn’t charge for a couple of hours labor. I trusted

the company as their previous work had been satisfactory over the past years. The activity that transpired is shoddy at

best. I requested a reduction in cost , they indicated they had already "in good faith" reduced the bill by $200! Can you imagine $1084 to fix a stuck valve. And now I need a new timer and a new sprinkler head (they actually missed one)

the office manager was always polite, answered phone messages and responded to all email.

I called several companies and left the message that I was
looking to replace my existing landscape lights. Also, I mentioned that I knew
it was short notice, but I needed someone to come out that week because I was
having some major landscaping done that weekend. I wanted to get the lights in before they
covered the area with ...More mulch. was one of the first to respond.
Velander, the owner, called me that afternoon and after I explained the
urgency, he came by the next day to take a look. He gave a fair and reasonable price
for the work to be done and he had enough lights with him to do the job with
the exception of being short one path light. said he could have it out by
the next morning which was fine with me. However, actually got the other
light out that evening much to my surprise, which I noticed when I returned
home from dinner with my wife. He and
his assistant were friendly and professional as well as completed the job
quickly. One of the reasons I initially selected ’s company among those
that I called was that was the only company I found that did outside
lighting only. In addition, it was a big plus that services the lights they
install. So, I have one less trip to Lowes or Home Depot to make. I would
definitely use and again for any outdoor lighting needs.
