came to my house a few days after my purchase to evaluate the work to be done and schedule a date for the work. Although he did not give" me a time they would arrive,
did let me know when the were delayed. This was my first big job at my home and my first Angie's list deal purchased. It was not the perfect transaction I dreamed of, but the work was excellent - which is the most important thing. I will be better at communicating on future projects, asking questions and the like. I appreciate the great work
and his men did; my yard has not looked this good in years.

"J.D. was fantastic, we stated with a quick design consultation for a modest price to test the waters. J.D. showed up, was personable and extremely knowledgeable" of his field. J.D. made my wife and I to feel very comfortable throughout the design and installation processes. J.D. and his crew began on schedule and was flexible when we needed to change dates (and some plans) based on a new fence we were putting in, as well as delays due to weather. J.D. discovered a tree in our yard was a "weed-tree" which could be damaging to the new landscaping/sod, as well as the garden we were putting in; he recommended a tree removal service whose costs were on par with other services in the area and within 1 day the tree was gone. J.D's crew was very courteous and friendly when on-site, always a tip of the hat and a wave with a smile. J.D. is the designer and actually does overseas the implementation of the design, and is not afraid to throw a little mulch around. My wife and I are ecstatic with the work he and his crew did, we just wish we had more green-space for him to work on. You should absolutely hire this company, even if you don't really need the work 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.

Picking plants and shrubs for your lawn's landscape isn't as easy as choosing what looks best or has the most colorful blooms.

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to have a lush lawn without having to water or mow the grass?

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.

was a complete professional. First, he owns large excavation equipment and was able to do a thorough job of re-contouring our land so that we had proper water drainage near the end of our driveway. We have had contractors come who took on jobs that were too big and really struggled with the final product because they didn't have the right equipment- this wasn't the case with Mr.
Fulton Landscaping Companies Provider Name Locked
Our property has a slope down to the road and requires a drainage pipe under the end of the driveway to channel water down the rest of the hill. It had been 30 years since the channel was originally dug, so the pipe was higher than the current flow of water in the ditch- which ended up just pooling (the mosquitoes loved it) after every storm. Mr.
Fulton Landscaping Companies Provider Name Locked
removed the top
Fulton Landscaping Companies Provider Name Locked
of gravel from that portion of the driveway, removed the old (and partially crushed) metal pipe, dug and graded the trench to accept a new pvc pipe, and re-graveled the top. We have since had a heavy thunderstorm and the water moved like a swift stream, straight down to the neighborhood collection system. He then added a beautiful stone veneer to the
Fulton Landscaping Companies Provider Name Locked
of the pipe so that it looks high-end and finished, which is nice since it's the first thing you see. It used to be just the razor-sharp end of the crushed corrugated pipe- so this treatment is a lot safer around children.
We also needed to replace the original yard light, which had collapsed, and the mailbox post that was heavily leaning. Neither had proper concrete footings, so Mr.
Fulton Landscaping Companies Provider Name Locked
dug new holes and poured concrete footings and removed the old pieces. He assembled and attached the new light from start to finish. Now, the new lamp and mailbox posts are solid and properly anchored (and will hopefully stand up to our snowblower for many winters).
All of this was done while we were on vacation. He said that we would be pleased, and we were (unlike 8/10 of the contractors we have used in the last 4 years). I think he has an artistic vision and works diligently to see that vision come to fruition. Most of the folks we have hired have used the "it's good enough" metric- which ends up looking amateurish but at a premium price. This cost of this job wasn't cheap, but it was fair. We were truly delighted with the end result.

was such a professional. She was punctual and provided us with a visual plan for our home that made it much easier to understand. Her price was fair and her crew was amazing! I have NEVER seen anyone come in and perform promised services in such a quick, flawless manner. It was quite amazing! Our home looks wonderful now and we've received many compliments. I would highly recommend this company for your landscaping needs. We will be using them for other services in the fall

'ts. They always do what I ask and do it well at no extra cost. When they took out pampas grass it took two men working over 1 1/2 hours. I paid them extra. They are always on time and have brought in mulch and spread it. They dig up plants and transplant them when I request it. They have taken out several bushes and replaced them. All around, we are very pleased.

Awesome. Plants that died under guarantee were replaced, needs (as for screening) were recognized, changes made, questions answered. Even unusual requests to keep plants with sentimental value were cheerfully honored. The results are not only beautiful, but unique and very much our own.

gave an estimate and valuable suggestions for how things can be done. A few days later he brought in 2 other people. They were very efficient, working hard without wasting any time in my yard for 3 days in a row. They rebuilt a brick patio.
Fulton Landscaping Companies Provider Name Locked
suggested to flip the old brick so the patio looks like new after the job was done and I didn't have to buy a single piece of new brick! They cut a few tress, removed dead thrubs, laid out a two car wide parking area with rocks, brought in a few plants to decorate around the new patio, applied mulches, fixed fences, smoothed the surface where there was old tree trunks and rocks. There were a lot of unexpected difficulties. They did an excellent job and we love our yard now!

I called
Fulton Landscaping Companies Provider Name Locked
Landscaping because they were at the top of the list when I searched for a yard clean up company. I realize now that they were only at the top because they offered the most coupons and I didn't realize my
Fulton Landscaping Companies Provider Name Locked
was set up that way.
Anyway, I called them on the phone and they lady asked for my address and when I told it to her she said "Wow, you have a big yard"… and I guess because of that we had to set up an appt. for someone to come out and just look at my yard and give me an estimate. 1/3 acre is not huge when a majority of it is concrete and a casita… Tiny area of grass about 10' X 20' and a bunch of rock and some tree's & shrubs… Oh well.
Well, just to get someone out here took them 6 days. When the gentleman showed up to the house he spoke with my wife, who told him what we were looking at having done. Basic yard clean up of leaves and some very light pruning. He said he would make notes of everything and have someone in the office get back to us.!
I got home late last night and did not talk with my wife about the landscape quote until today. I was flabbergasted when she told me that he did NOT give her any type of quote at all..!! He was here as a representative of the company, sent by the company and could NOT give an estimate. Doesn't look good when a someone who comes out to give you a quote, can't or won't give you a quote. Unbelievable..
Nobody from
Fulton Landscaping Companies Provider Name Locked
Landscaping called me this morning by 11:30am, so I called them. No answer..! Message machine came on saying that they are out of the office until Monday and that's when they would return calls.
Just a completely unprofessional experience with this company. Because of this, of course, I will not be using them.
I called another landscaping company from Angie's list TODAY and they were out here to give me a quote "on the spot" within 1 hour..!! They gave me a great price and they will be out to do the work, the first of the week.
