"Very pleased with the experience and the beautiful new walkway! We worked with , a representative for . He was" professional and receptive to our vision for the new walkway, while offering his professional expertise. Mr. was generous with his time and came out to the house twice to show us paver styles and examples of other jobs completed. The company responded to our initial inquiry promptly, Mr. facilitated the process efficiently, and the workers were polite and courteous. Most of all we appreciated that although we have a modest home and this was a relatively small job, we were still treated as valued customers. We will definitely use for subsequent jobs.

"Not good. Signed contract in August, work just completed to their satisfaction after many hassles. Won't go into too many ugly details, but this company" aka Construction did not do what they promised, had to argue to get the work done that was promised and end result is questionable. Suffice to say problems started with type of sand, told they weren't going to use play-sand but they did. Drainage (pavers over concrete) is still an issue which they will likely never resolve despite being told it would not be a problem. Many contacts between staff on their promise to fix the threshold to return it to handicap status. Everyone threw each other under the bus, doesn't say much for their staff. They made the PM come do the job they said their sealant guy " " would do. It's just a mess, they better hold to their 1 yr warranty.

Creating a unique look for your yard means more than just cut grass, trimmed shrubbery and pretty flowers. Hardscaping, the creation of any man-made structures on your lawn, is just as crucial for overall appearance.

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.

Hardscaping reviews in North Smithfield


was fantastic! He and his team cleared the lanai area of some light furniture and a grill before starting. They taped-off the driveway so no vendors could disturb the work area. The process took three days as the covered portion of the lanai area did not want to dry completely. The team works in stages. First they power ...More wash, then waited a day for the driveway to dry completely before sanding and sealing. Then they waited another day for the lanai to get completely dry, which is the way to do it - not rush the job. The team was very professional, and nice to work around.
- Harriet F.

Very well. The owner came over and looked at the area to be completed. I chose the kind of stone I wanted and he picked it up and delivered it. This was a special offer on Angie's List and I don't remember how much it cost, but it was very reasonable, and he did a little extra work beyond what the special offered. He was very responsive and ...More helpful ,and his people did an excellent job. I would definitely recommend him.
- Carol G.

We met with sales person (I think she is 's wife) who had several real samples of product, in different colors, and patterns. After laying out several next to the stone accents and house we chose a color. She did a drawing of the layout, measured it and gave us a firm quote, and setup schedule for 2 weeks away.
We ...More had to get approval, and when that was delayed we contacted to reschedule, but in the end, that wasn't needed. he was very accommodating though.
Day of install, team arrived early. They cut away the existing grass to the concrete edging onto the soil below, edging out the yard beautifully. One section needed to be hand formed as machine wouldn't fit, and it blends in great. Overall it took most of the day but looks great. We used them because a neighbor was satisfied, and now another neighbor has contacted to do their home. Great job, great color and pattern. Check out their website for all the different patterns they can do. The pattern is applied as a stamp in the damp concrete, and then accent cuts were applied by hand. It really looks stunning.
Thanks , if we ever have a need again, you would be our first call!

Excellent company to work with. Work done well with no surprises. Slight issue with miscommunication when our job had to be delayed due to weather backing up their schedule - but they were very apologetic about the communication error and pleasant to work with. The driveway looks beautiful and many neighbors have complimented us.

(owner) and his team did a great job and I highly recommend them. He was easy to work with from our first meeting and estimate, through planning, and project completion. has a single full-time crew and they focus solely on your project from start to finish. It was nice not having to worry if the project ...More would be done correctly. & Gardens provide quality craftsmanship, do as they promise, and are easy to work with.
My family is enjoying our new beautiful backyard!
- Allen C.

Abracadabra did a fantastic job! They take pride in their work and it shows! We have a resort like backyard that all of our friends want to hang out in! Abracadabra pays attention to all of the details and makes sure the job is done right. They think of everything and go the extra mile to make it perfect. We will definitely use them again and have ...More recommended them to all of our friends.
- Dawn T.

Perfect! and his crew did a fabulous job and it was not in an easy place. We live directly on Rt. 23 so it took organization and good management to complete this job in a safe and thorough manner. was present on the job site at all times and worked alongside his crew every step of the way. He's pleasant, ...More honest, professional and a pleasure to work with. I would highly recommend him and would use him again if I ever had the need.
- Debra B.

The first time I called he answered right away, we setup a time for him to come out. His client before me was taking longer than expected and he called me with plenty of time to spare so I wasn't sitting around waiting, I really appreciated that. He got there when he said he would be there, very efficiently changed out ...More the sprinkler valve and explained that they parts are made with plastic and they break down every few years, which made me feel better cause mine had been breaking like crazy! He replaced the one and cleaned up after himself and you couldn't even tell any grass had been dug up.
The second time I used them was this summer, I had another sprinkler valve in the backyard that I had run over with the lawn mower and it wouldn't shut off! came out when we agreed (I was able to turn off the sprinkler system so I wasn't in a huge rush) he dug up the offending valve and discovered that the previous home owner had done some very inventive routing of the sprinkler lines. There was a tree root right under the valve and the previous owner had run the lines around it and over it, which is why I ended up running over the thing with my mower. was able to straighten out the mess and get everything back in the dirt so I won't have that problem again.
His price was exactly what I was expecting. He was very easy to work with and I will definitely give them a call again if I need it.
