"We were very happy with the results. It is so nice to look out at our yard and see everything looking so nice instead of a bunch of projects to do. Really wonderful" job!
on the sales team provided excellent suggestions for plants to replace the scrubs we removed. She was what you want in a sales person - knowledgeable and not pushy. She was a pleasure to work with.
and his crew were very professional. The job was bigger than I think they had anticipated so they brought in another crew to finish the job in one day as promised. They did all the weeding by hand and respected my wishes to use no chemicals which I am sure made it a much harder job. We also had a sizable hill to contend with and they accomplished it all with a great attitude. I would highly recommend the

How to find the right landscaper

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.

Landscaping reviews in Louisa


Pros: The initial worker showed up on time and Wali came out to check on him while I was there. Wali was pleasant to deal with and was responsive to most of my emails and two phone calls. Work removing the grout went fairly well and then it went downhill from there. Cons: . -The 1st worker placed the tiles he removed on my lawn and temporarily killed my grass in about 14 places. Two small spots have yet to come back. Wali brought a plant (which I see is offered as an Angie's list member gift) and some fertilizer to speed the green up, but since it was 90 degrees out I would have thought a landscaping company employee would know better. - 1st worker came back and grouted the tiles without bringing the proper tools to remove the haze which ultimately dried on the slate tiles. Additionally, his work was so messy that he splattered mortar on my newly painted bump-out, glass storm door and bottom frame work of my door, sidelights and my beige driveway. I understand accidents happen but he had water right next to the bump-out where he could at least have washed off the mortar on the bump-out and my driveway. Unfortunately, by the time I got home from work he was gone and I had to send Wali an email. He came out with vinegar and removed the grout off the bump-out along with my new paint. I now have to repaint. They did repaint the bottom of the doorframe woodwork but not the bump-out or one of the sidelights. -Because the tiles were not properly cleaned and grout was allowed to dry on uneven areas of the slate there are numerous places where the mortar will not come off. The tiles is a deep red and now the edges of the tiles where they tried to clean the mortar off is lighter than the rest of the tile. Ends were not initially finished properly and I had to go out with blue tape and identify all the problems with the job. They did not initially remove the grout from the front and sides of the porch saying the grout would match....it did not and they had to come back and re-grout . I was so unhappy with the 1st workers performance that Wali sent a different employee the next time. I found out later the 2nd guy was not a qualified mason but a fill in with some masonry experience. Although he was very personable, you can tell he did not have the experience to smoothly

the mortar on the front of the steps. He also mixed the mortar differently so in places it is not exactly the same color as the first employee. -The very last time they had to come out and replace a small crushed tile on the porch. Believe there was not enough mortar under the tile because I could see a hole under it. They fixed the crushed tile with more mortar, and did the finish cut on the uneven edges. Mortar dust was left all over the walkway along with more mortar, sand, and grout on my driveway from where they mixed the mortar. I tried getting the mortar off the driveway with vinegar and it did not work. I also spent a whole morning this weekend on my hands and knees removing the dust with a sponge. -I would not recommend them for a repair. I feel Wali did not assign properly qualified masons to this project which is why I gave a "D" to the Overall experience. I gave them a "F" for quality primarily for the employee knowingly coming out to do a mortar job without the tools to finish the job properly which then contributed to the other problems. Wali did try to fix the problems but once you have dried mortar on slate it is very hard to come back from that. He also did not apologize for his subordinates lack of work quality, or offer a discount for the problems encountered.

I had first contacted the company in December 2014. Clay came to my home and I told him what I needed, and asked him to provide a plan, with the possibility of doing the work. He informed me that a plan was $2k, and would not be started until a $1k deposit was made. I paid $1k in January 2015. At the initial meeting, Clay informed me that he was working on an extensive project, and would not be able to do any installation until that project was complete.. I had been assured changes could be made to the initial draft. After contacting him via phone and email, I finally received the draft plan in April 2015. Again, I was told that the other large project delayed his work on my project. On May 1, 2015, I emailed him that changes needed to be included on the draft and asked him to contact me. I received no response to my email. I paid $1,000 for an incomplete plan, received no response to my email regarding changes. Although I was very patient, Clay should at least have told me he was not interested in doing the installation, or even completing the plan. I assumed Clay thought his obligation for the receipt of half the plan cost had been taken care of, but would think a responsible company would make clear whether or not he was able or desired to complete my plan, much less the installation. I am disappointed, to say the least.

I interviewed 2 other landscapers before our neighbor referred us to Greens & Blooms. What immediately distinguished Greens & Blooms was the fact that the owner,
Louisa Landscaping Companies Provider Name Locked
, is a creative and experienced designer, in addition to landscaper. Other landscapers did not provide a blueprint of what was being proposed. There was a reasonable charge for this blueprint, and well worth it when you are starting from no yard. Before the job started, there was no question of what it was going to look like. The blueprint showed us plant beds, specific plants/trees and their size, look of rock/granite flagstone, areas and designated grass areas. Once the design and estimate were agreed upon the work took approximately 1week for front and back yards.

Pristine in fact.
I obtained three bids for the job.

I have never seen a group of more hard-working men. Apparently the fire pit was much deeper and stronger than they thought and it took great pains to remove. They never charged me extra. They worked very hard and were really good people.I wanted them to remove the stone from the front brick facade that had been cemented on 16 years ago and initially they agreed but once their specialist arrived he told me they didn't want to take any chances in removing the stone in case the brick was damaged - that was very disappointing but they suggested I patch the grout and reseal - it looks better but I still really want to have the original facade back......but not their fault....
