"The front yard is divided into two parts. There is a smaller side and a larger side. On the smaller side, the grass did grow, but it was more of a twitch grass. On the larger side," the grass did not grow well at all and there are now a lot of large, bare spots. We had found complaints on Angie's List regarding sub-standard application and poor responsiveness. We also checked the BBB, and discovered an unsatisfied customer report on their site. Eventually, when we had called several times, they finally did offer to come out and plant more grass seed and
more straw for an additional $400.00, which was outrageous as the job was not properly finished the first time. We are requsting a refund of $350.00 because we don't want them to come back here.

"Cliff responded to my request immediately. He was so pleasant and scheduled a time to meet us and look at the yard so he could prepare a bid. He came out the same week, looked over" the yard, we told him what we wanted, he told us what had to happen for the prepping of the yard and gave us a very competitive bid. My husband shook
hand and said we wanted him to do the job. Cliff said a handshake was all he needed to get started. We had our contractor bring in topsoil and Cliff came in to install the sod. He did all the installation by himself! He ordered the sod fresh-cut the day of install and it looks fabulous!! Cliff went over how to take care of it before it freezes this winter. He was so nice and is a very hard worker! He even came back a second time for a small adjustment and took care of everything quickly. Nice guy! Good work!! Great price! Quality sod!

"
and his crew are always fun to have working on my yard. They work hard and clean up after themselves.
brings good listensing skills and" great ideas to the table which make him an unusal contractor. This is the third of five projects he is doing for me. Next spring he will complete the front yard and then in two years he will be putting in a soaking tub and deck for me. His work has always been superb and reliable. I would recommend him to anyone who needs work done.

Finding the right landscaper can help ensure your yard is taken care of to perfection. (Photo by Katie Jacewicz)

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 can be a major undertaking, and a long-lasting one. Start with a clear plan of what you want to achieve, then decide what parts you want to do yourself and what would require a professional. If you're thinking of selling your home, a bit of landscaping can give it the 'curb appeal' it needs.

Landscapes in certain areas require more water due to their higher chance of drought.

You have to water your landscape more often in certain areas due to the higher chance of drought. Will watering restrictions mandate a new mindset toward our home landscapes?

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.

Workers were polite, friendly, invested in their job. And more than willing to do anything I asked of them. Consulted along the way -- two days in a row. Pre-inspection and planning decisions were done with an owner of Wellspring present, his tree experts (two visited my property before making decisions on how to proceed)... mulch was brought and applied... along with nutrient enriched soil. They are professional. They are personal. They care. Very comforting to know people run their business with this kind of standard and approach. i contracted them for a full year -- to administer to my property: the trees, bushes and lawn care on a yearly basis.
Their prices are totally competitive... in fact lower than many individual gardening services and individuals.
I was given cell phone numbers (of the owners and director of services) and urged to call them for ANY reason or questions. At any time. How refreshing is that?
The response is always same day. By phone and/or email.

was very responsive to all our questions and suggested we look at plants at

's. He even offered to pick them up and deliver them to our home. We were scheduled for the 8th of October. The guys showed up on the 6th of October (2 days early) and went right to work. They removed old sod and existing plants (which were saved fro replanting). They prepped the planting beds and planted the new and existing plants exactly where I wanted them. The crew worked fast and did a fantastic job! They had left an area open so our contractor could bring in topsoil for the sod then came back on the 8th to complete the mulching of that area.

Sione, the owner, communicated with me from beginning to end. He is actually onsite almost every day doing the work. They came exactly the week they told me that they would and were finished in 6 days. They checked in with me every other day, and more often when decisions needed to be made.



They cleaned up very well, leaving the property better than when they arrived.



I was so pleased that I had them come back and install a shed, build a railing, and repair my front porch. When they returned, they redid part of the wall which had moved due to my French drain. He reconfigured the drain so that it would no longer flow into the wall.



My neighbors can't say enough about how beautiful our yard looks!

I have recommended them to my neighbors also.

It went well.
Newport Landscapers Provider Name Locked
used our plan and the plants we wanted. They bought the plants at a wholesale nursey that they use. Mason picked healthy good looking plants and he and his workers dug good sized holes for the plants. Our hillside was not easy to work in, and they used a drill for many of the holes. He will be back to plant one more plant and to spread one more load of dirt. Mason was more than willing to do what we wanted on the hillside and was very responsive to that end.
The price we are being billed included all labor, all plants, and two loads of dirt in their large trailer. They were a small crew that worked very hard in difficult conditions. We would recommend them to others.

In front of our house we had 25 year old bushes that had grown tall and were unsightly. We also had crepe

trees. The old bushes were difficult to remove but they had a tractor, The new plants were planted without problems and the ground covered with mulch. They did break a sprinkler pipe but fixed it. The only problem was they were a day late starting. They were very professional. We are extremely pleased with the design and final appearance of the landscaping project. I give the landscape architect an A+ and the workers an A.
