"I recently moved into a new home with terrible landscaping and I was having a hard time getting anyone in the area, including my regular landscaper, to call me back" for a redesign. I found on Angie's List and left a message for Bill to call me back. He returned my call immediately and came out the next evening to take pictures of my property. He said he would come back with a design by Monday or Tuesday and by Tuesday morning he called to ask if he could come out after work to discuss. I hired him immediately. They started work that Thursday and by Sunday afternoon the entire job was completed!! I have never worked with a more professional, courteous group of people. Bill was there every day and his crew was there from morning to night each day. They were respectful and cleaned up each night before they left. My yard looks AMAZING and Bill has been out every day since, checking the lights and fixing sprinklers that needed to be adjusted. Needless to say, I have fired my landscaper and is now doing my regular weekly maintenance. Hi HIGHLY recommend this company to anyone. Thanks Bill and team!!!

"When I contacted for fill dirt, they were very helpful. They couldn't guarantee a delivery time if I chose end of day, but was told" if I chose first thing in the morning, they could delver on time. So I selected 7:30 a.m.. At 7:45 I hadn't heard or seen from anyone so I called the office and informed me that they had trouble with the loader but that he was loaded and on his way. Well, at 8:15 still no sign of anyone so I called again. Now no one answers the phone. I try several times and no answer. Finally at 9:30 - two hours late, the truck shows up. I question the driver as to why he was so late, as I was quite late for work now, and he informed me that he was sent to Winter Garden first. Not happy! I show the driver the general vicinity of where I want the dirt dumped and trust him to do it right. Well he drives at an angle across my driveway and breaks it about a foot from the and proceeds to drive over the of my paver sidewalk (although he had a whole yard to drive on) and crushes some and pops others up. When he stops rocking the truck and leaving huge ruts on my yard and gets out, I showed him what he did and his response was "yep, that's what happens when you drive a big truck over pavers". I was so angry, but had agreed to purchase the dirt for a certain price and gave him the check. I then took pictures and sent them to confident that she would respond and do the right thing by offering to help repair the damage, but again, no response. To date, there has been no response or follow up by . I will never use them again or recommend them to anyone.

Mulch & Wood Chips

Mulch can be a lot of different things, but at its core it exists as a material that is applied to landscaping, walking paths and flower beds for aesthetic purposes, to suppress weed growth, retain moisture and supply nutrients to soil through decay.

Discourage weeds in your garden landscape and get the most from your mulch with these tips from a landscaping pro.

Here's how to jump start your spring lawn and landscape projects.

Landscapers mulch to moderate soil temperature, conserve moisture, suppress weeds and to add organic matter to the soil as the shredded bark breaks down.

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.

Mulch Delivering reviews in Orlando


Landscaping was excellent! The crew was friendly and professional. The plants are beautiful and he worked with me throughout the process to ensure that everything was placed well and met my expectations. The lighting was a great addition and really makes the house stand out at night. He even finished the job early to make ...More sure I had everything done for the holidays!

clearly stands by his work and has even returned to check up on the health of the plants, as well as install some additional watering mechanisms. I will DEFINITELY use for all of my future landscaping needs.
- Jennifer S.

showed up on time for estimate and the work was performed as scheduled. They did a great job on the sod and plant removal. His recommendations on how much sod to replace was spot on and the front yard looks great.
- Bob H.

was first contracted on January 2011. In the beginning we were paying him as he would finish each segment of the job which was like pulling teeth, because every time, we were promised a finished date, there would always be an excuse, like (my grandmother died or I go robbed and I was in the hospital) What should have been a ...More 3 month job from start to finish we are now in the eleventh month ( we are now in November,2011). In trying to make a long story short because I was a fool and trusting him with other side jobs, WILL HAS DISAPPEARED and has gone MIA. It's been almost 3 months in trying to reach him and he has blocked our phone calls. We have given him the deposit to buy materials for the master bedroom addition that we are in the midst of constructing and and he had left abandoned, job unfinished. I had given him deposit for the grass and a/c to buy the unit and here we are $4,000.00 in the hole. Even though he did give us a good price, he is not a man who honors his word, he hasn't finished any of the work such as the tilework in the bedrooms, kitchen cabinet installation, tile countertops, backsplash in the kitchen and bathroom, carpet in the bedroom, exterior texture and exterior paint, installation of insulation, and finishing work in the master bedroom, electrical work in the kitchen, a/c unit purchase and installation, installation of topsoil and grass, all of we had paid deposits on and we had contracted him to do and, just like other unfortunate consumers have been fooled by this worthless so-called "contractor'. After more than 100+ phone calls, texts, voice mail messages left, he doesn't even bother to return our calls. It has also come to the point where he has blocked our phone numbers from his cell phone and Wife's cell phone. I do ask if you ever come into contact with Mr. , please be wary and know that this past client would like to warn you that you will be fooled and the work will never be finished. I would not recommend him in any way, shape or form. Someone that is honest and reliable is one that you will need, someone who doesn't give excuses that "my dog died" or "I got hit in the head and was in the hospital"...someone who is reliable and shows up when they say, completes work upon deadlines and knows how to handle obstacles and tell the client when they happen is what you want as a client/consumer --these are not the traits of Mr. . I would never recommend him not use him in any future jobs or any friend or relative.
- Carie N.

I called Landscape with a last-minute request to put down a new of fresh mulch before a party scheduled less than a week away. There were able to come out and provide an estimate the very next day, and squeezed me into their schedule in order to get the job done before the party. A nice crew who did ...More a good job. I am very pleased--great service!
- George D.

I gave a loose schedule on when to start and finish (knowing that I was hitting him in the peak of his busy season). I let him know that I "just wanted the job done right". He assured that the work would be done properly from the beginning.

was not the lowest bidder, but his ...More ratings on Angie's List helped me make my decision to go with experience and quality workmanship.

I spent (invested) a tidy sum in my yard, and I don't expect to need to do it again for a long time, thanks to 's Landscaping.
- Albert F.

Great job with a beautiful result. Due to heavy rain, I had to reschedule and the coordination was easy and smooth. The firm followed up with me to ensure date accuracy too. The work was done over the course of two days. Everything went smoothly. The people who did the work were very nice, did a wonderful job, were on time, and left my property ...More clean and neat. My whole experience from initially discussing the work through contracting to have it done & then having it done was a pleasant smooth no-hassle experience. I strongly recommend this firm.
- Ted R.

was very prompt to follow up. He has a good eye for design. The installation went well although took a little longer than anticipated. Overall we are very happy with his work.
