"We needed to have a special time for this service and
Utter made sure to accommodate us.
, the team leader, double" checked our drip system as we had a major increase in our water bill. He found no problems but suggested it would be our water feature. He performed extra pruning on a fan palm that had become too large. He and the team always respond to our requests and leave our property clean.

"I had a previous lawn service that I was not happy with. The previous company was not taking care of the lawn like they said they would and the property would always" be a mess when they had left. I am so glad I switched to White Tail and I could not be happier. The lawn has improved tremendously! They really do a great job and the property looks great. I would highly recommend White Tail for any of your landscaping needs. They are a real professional company that go above and beyond to make sure you are happy.

How to find the right landscaper

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

Landscaping

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 time to “think outside the bed” for your next landscaping project.

We love our pets and our lawns, but the two don’t always live in harmony. Try to combine functional space with beautiful landscaping for you and your pet.

If your idea of outdoor entertaining still involves a portable grill and a Styrofoam cooler, it might be time to upgrade.

Outdoor kitchens cost thousands to build. That’s because labor charges can account for as much 70 percent of the cost.

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 -

http://www.tractorbynet.com/forums/attachments/build-yourself/117273d1230307978-stump-grinder-questions-stumpgrinderred.jpg

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.

Terrible work and terrible customer service. Gave them the benefit of the doubt several times and yet they still never mowed my yard when promised. I had to call and call to remind them when to come, like having babysitting to get the job done...even though I was supposed to be on a bi-weekly schedule. They were usually 2 or 3 days late after calling to "remind them" Then they would forget to bill me...and I would have to call about that!! When they did mow, they used a weed-eater to

everything in my flower bed (not sure how you can't tell crab grass from a hosta)... Maybe it wouldn't have been so bad, but they sprayed round up on my annuals, and bulbs, and pretty much anything green....along with busting half my solar lights. Horrible service & worst experience. Beware of this place.

I sent Angel two (2) messages by way of Angie's List messaging system and left him two (2) voice mail messages on the business phone regarding our interest in a Written Estimate to have existing sod removed, disposed and new sod sod installed, and I never received a reply. In good faith, I decided to provide Angel a reasonable amount of time to respond to me, but I never received a reply. Despite the great rating with Angie's List and past customers, any reasonable potential customer would find them hard to believe. At minimum, I would have appreciated a response from the likes of an assistant, a receptionist, someone!

I'm writing a follow up review for one I posted a couple of years ago. Initially we were satisfied with the services provided. Where the down spouts were buried are now causing us further yard flooding issues. After doing more research and looking at other yards, I now see the down spouts are all brought to the

of the yard instead of the middle, as is what was done with ours. The larger issue here is after 3 years, 4 of our 10 evergreen trees have died. These trees were 4ft tall and not cheep.

warranties the plants up to 1 year, which I'm learning is standard. The issue with the trees happened when we dug them up and all of them still had the burlap on them & this hadn't decomposed. The other issue is one of the trees still had the wire basket still on it. I was willing to count the other ones as a loss, but the tree with the wire around was very concerning. We contacted
Little Compton Landscaping Companies Provider Name Locked
and didn't hear anything back.
The other issue I've had is we have had them spray our yard (not after the dead trees) and asked they call ahead and we would put our dogs in the house - otherwise they have a doggie door and an invisible fence. On several occasions we found our dogs barking after the man spraying the yard. He didn't appear to have any concern for the dogs and continued while the dogs were barking and running behind him. Of course we called every time and asked they call ahead of time and expressed our concern but nothing was done about it.
Overall the services were marginal and very expensive.

We had no idea what to do with our overgrown backyard in our new house, but Navid took the time to listen to what we wanted in our outdoor space and made a great design that suited those needs. After a few planning visits, we were ready to proceed but scheduling work is difficult due to our work travels. Navid and his crew

to the challenge! They worked with us at every step, and really made the whole project happen in one weekend- amazing! The crew was on time, considerate of our neighbors (no early morning power tools on the weekend), courteous, professional, and most importantly did a great job. The stonework was great! Our family will enjoy this backyard for many years to come thanks to

managed the project and did a great job overall. He had to bring in a big piece of equipment to move some of the large landscape rocks but the job was done in a timely manner. The only real challenge was communicating with his workers. I had to adjust my original plan because they misunderstood and filled in the area that I had reserved for a shed. It turned out fine though. One sprinkler head was broken but since we were redoing all the sprinklers, this wasn't a big issue. Overall, I appreciated his completion of the project in a timely manner with the least disruption in the rest of the yard.

We were impressed by how knowledgeable the owner was about plants, and he seemed to really like his job.
He brought a crew of several men to work on our yard the day of the work. There was so much to do that it took most of the
morning. The pruning was done differently, depending on the type of plant they were dealing with. It is useful to be home
if possible when you hire them, because they will consult you while they are doing the work if anything comes up they have
a question about, but it isn't necessary to be home if you can't be. The owner came with the crew and directed them all,
overseeing everything done.
