"it started with me being notified that I need to talk to Mr.
regarding the landscaping for our house. I called him a couple of times but" never heard back from him. I figured he was busy, but when the builder asked me what the status was on the landscaping I told them I had not heard from Mr.
. The builder called him and he told them he had not heard from me. I called him again and he answered and agreed to meet my wife and myself at the house to discuss our landscaping. It was the middle of winter and we were concerned about the landscaping going into the ground when it was so cold, but he assured us all would be well and there was "1 year warranty" if there were any problems with the plants. he talked to us about the kind of plants that we wanted and he said he knew what we wanted and that he had some suggestions. We have since learned these were very cheap suggestions and not what we really wanted. For instance my wife wanted something large that would be a good screen for around the pool and he suggested emerald arborvitaes. he did not tell us they were very slow growing in our region and that a lot of them needed to be planted for an effective screen. He also neglected to tell us that they are very susceptible to disease and parasites. When we moved in several of the plants were dead and we had to have them replaced. This occurred probably because he planted the plants between two ice storms. He kept telling us they were dormant until finally we made him come over and he agreed they were dead and then replaced them. When we moved into the house we found that the drainage in the back yard was not done properly and everything was flowing into our pool. After months of talking with him and the builder he finally came back and regarded the yard and then moved the placement of the runoff spout to the middle of the back yard. At least it doesn't flow back into the pool now. The plants keep dying off and he has been very difficult to get a hold of on the phone. I one time made the mistake of calling him twice in a row (his phone was doing something strange and did not let me leave a message) and when he called back he snapped at me and asked what was so urgent that I needed to call him so much. He then proceeded to chew me out for calling him and not waiting for him to call me back. The next time I called, I waited to see how long it would take him to call me back, and then got tired of waiting after two hours and called him again. He then barked at me again about calling him and that he was "very busy". I decided to go through the builder without talking to him. On the final time that I talked to him, he told me that the plants which were dead in the backyard were dead due to parasites probably and that his warranty does not cover parasites. He said he would come out and look at the plants and let me know. Two weeks later on a Saturday morning, some people were wandering around the backyard and my wife asked them who they were and they said they were with
. They told my wife that they were checking the plants and the irrigation to see if they were being watered enough. Then they left without replacing any of the obviously dead plants and we have never seen or heard from them again. When we moved in they were supposed to go over the irrigation system with us, but that never happened. I downloaded instructions and read the manual and figured some settings out, but nothing more than the basics, and still do not know what is included in my system.

Lawn irrigation and sprinklers

Watering your lawn sounds simple enough, but many people don't do it correctly, even when they invest in automated irrigation systems. An inexpensive timer is the best investment whether you're using buried water lines or a garden hose.

Angie's Answers


Cost depends of course on your locale, and distance to nearest pit or quarry that carries your desired type material. Be careful also where fill is coming from - you don't want someone pawning off a load of construction/demolition or land clearing debris or petroleum/chemicals contaminated waste on you.


Generally, in broad terms and excluding inner cities where delivery round-trip time is long due to distance from pits and slow traffic or very remote areas far from material source, the delivery charge or trip charge will normally run from $50-150 per trip, plus cost of material being hauled. Note you may be quoted just a per-ton (or per cubic yard for topsoil commonly) price based on a full truckload which would include trip charge and material charge. Others will quote separately, and some will forget to quote trip charge and only give material price. For instance, if you call and say "what does topsoil run per yard" they may say $30 - neglecting to say you will be charged a trip charge for the truck trip regardless of whether you buy 1 yard or 25 yards, so if $150 trip charge would be net $180/cy for 1 yard, but  $40/cy net if a 15 yard full truckload, for instance - so get clear on TOTAL cost for specific amount of material. I am always amazed at hearing hauling contractors gripe about rejected loads because when they showed up the homeowner did not realize there was a trip charge - and of course many times the driver dumps it BEFORE getting payment - BAD idea, as it costs more to get a loader in there to pick it up than to just give it to them without charging for the haul.


General round numbers for types of materials (and some areas may fall outside even these broad ranges) - common (unclassified) fill around $3-12/ton, sand/gravel around $5-15/ton, sand/gravel or crushed rock screened to a specific specification (like for clean drain rock or pea gravel or driveway base or structural fill or such) $12-30/ton, cobbles and crusher oversize (generally 2" plus material to about 12-18 inches - size varies by source) $15-40/ton, quarry spalls (mostly 1/2-6") with some fines and occaisonal up to 12 inch shot rock roughly about $15-40/ton, small riprap (6 inch to maybe 2 foot) $35-100/ton, large rirrap (2 foot plus) $50-250/ton, topsoil $5-50/cubic yard, decorative garden/yard rock $40-500/ton depending on fanciness and how far away imported from. Wide price range because some areas have numerous close sources, other have to go to great effort to produce certain sizes - especially with crushed highly durable rock and riprap, where it may be very hard to find good quality bedrock sources like in the lower Mississippi valley and areas of the midwest with heavy glacial sourced cover over the bedrock. Ditto to topsoil, where very cheap in some midwest areas with active subdivision development producing waste topsoil, to very expensive in some far northern and desert-like and near-beach areas where topsoil is virtually non-existent.


If you are going to be walking on this material, for kid play areas you want rounded river gravel or sand because it moves around and cushions falls better, but for walking areas/paths you generally want crushed materials so it does not move and scrunch around under your feet, though with decorative stone each particular type will only come one way - like rounded river rock, or angular reef limestone or lava rock.


Topsoil, in areas which a choice of sources, you need to specify if you want loam/loess (silty, sandy with little organics), clayey, peat/organic rich, or blended (organic plus sand) to reduce packing and caking and improve drainage.


Typical load size - small individual hauling companies haul 1/2-2 tons/load in small pickup or trailer loads, common dump truck sizes are around 8-10 ton capacity for single axle, 12-15 tons double rear axle, and 18-25 tons for belly or tilt dump trailers - and some contractors have "pup" trailers than haul about another 8-10 tons on same trip if needed. However, in urban areas weight restriction may prevent full loading - ditto during spring breakup in areas with road weight restriction to protect roads that are thawing out.


Rough BALLPARK estimating numbers - about 1.3-1.5 tons per dumped (uncompacted) cubic yard except for topsoil, which can run 0.8-1.3 tons per cubic yard depending on moisture and organics content.


Excavation contractor is AL search category I think and I believe I saw a Topsoil category once - but if you google you can find Topsoil and Gravel/Rock haulers, then check them against AL for reviews. For small quantities (a truckload or two) of topsoil, or specialty landscaping rocks, then a landscaping/plant center is sometimes your best source, though pricier for common materials than from a local topsoil or gravel pit or rock quarry, becdause they have apid to have it hauled to them, then have to pay to have it scooped up and hauled to you,plus their own profit and overhead costs so plant centers commonly about double direct from pit costper ton or yard.

Irrigation System reviews in Lodi


Lodi Lawn Irrigation Services Provider Name Locked
was prompt, responsive, thorough, and tidy. He was able to locate the valve and replace it in less than an hour. I did not rate the cost effectiveness as I usually do sprinkler repair myself and have nothing to compare. His wife
Lodi Lawn Irrigation Services Provider Name Locked
handles his schedule and was always very prompt and responsive.
- Randy Z.

These guys arrived on time and did the entire yard (almost 1/4 acre) in one day and the sprinkler system is now running at the best I have ever seen it and the yard looks fantastic!
- Dianne M.

A pricing proposal was promptly sent over to me. It was very detailed, understandable and gave me two options to consider. Bill was very knowledgeable and thorough investigating my sprinkler issue. I agree with his findings. I am waiting to do this work next spring.
- Judee W.

I purchased the tune-up, but I knew I would need many things done, as my sprinklers had not worked for years and I had many leaks. They spend several hours checking the system, and then gave me a detailed description of what needed to be done and the cost. They listened to my needs and focused on the areas that I wanted taken care of. They worked several days getting it all done, including installing an area that had been taken out when we had a pool put in. The work was done well and I believe the price was worth everything I had to have completed in a yard that is more than an acre.
- Kathy S.

My initial consultation with
Lodi Lawn Irrigation Services Provider Name Locked
went great. She is very knowledgeable and is very easy-going. We discussed a plan to remove some VERY large bushes and install some new plants and trees. After a day or two, she sent me a drawing with suggestions. I responded and asked if she could incorporate a few small existing fruit trees and maybe do a more "tropical" option. She sent me another drawing with those changes, which I loved. The price was a little above my budget, so I asked if we could downsize one of the garden areas, reduce the size of the path, and apply the Angie's List discount. She did all of the changes, except she said the Angie's List discount was no longer valid. The price was still better than before, so I asked her to go ahead and schedule it. She wrote me a short time later to let me know they would honor the discount from the older magazine since that was how I found them. Very classy! Linc came on a Friday, cut down all of the old bushes in one day, cleared all of the stumps and prepped on the second day, installed the plants on a third day and completed the path on the fourth day. It looks wonderful! Now I hope I can keep it all alive!

Right after I ordered the very nice receptionist called to schedule the appointment. They came out this morning, it was supposed to be between 8-10am but they were there promptly at 8am. Two very polite young men came out to work on the system. They were familiar with how this system works since it is an older model. They fixed a sprinkler line that was out and reset the timer. I was given a quote to fix a cut line for one of the sprinklers. I will call soon to schedule, I am very happy with the service!!!! I would recommend to anyone looking for sprinkler help!
- Kathleen M.

Between time appointment was made and company came out one zone on the sprinkler system stopped working. When tech arrived he asked if system was working or if there were any problems. . I told him about the zone and he immediately started discovery process to find out what was wrong. He checked to see if a zone was dead and said he found one. He used a
Lodi Lawn Irrigation Services Provider Name Locked
to determine that the wiring to that zone was deteriorated and that it had to be replaced. He gave a price for replacement of the wiring which was around $800 and said he didn't have time or equipment to do the work that day. I reminded him a 2nd time that I had paid for a sprinkler system tune up and wanted that service completed. He ran the "test run" on the system and stood by each zone to make sure they were operating but I had to ask him to adjust the heads where they would reach areas that were stressed from no water at each sprinkler,. He showed me how to manually use the zone that he said wiring needed replacement on. Heads were not cleaned as he said they were not dirty. . He wanted me to pay 1/2 of his estimate to get work scheduled for the zone that he said was dead. I requested he reset the timer for every other day to run all zones and said that I would visit with my husband about the "expensive repair that he said was needed. I ran a test on the system the next day after he left. ALL zones worked and nothing was needed. All sprinklers have worked since so apparently there was not a problem with the wiring. My thoughts are that my husband didn't set that particular zone to run on schedule and when it was reset by the tech it fixed that. . I'm glad I did not spend the $800 plus dollars to fix something that was not broken. I'm very disappointed that an experienced tech that said he had owned his own business would make this kind of mistake in diagnosing the problem. Due to this experience I would not use this service again.
- Phillip N.

arrived on time and diagnosed the problems quickly. It took 2.5 hours to complete the repairs, which would have taken me significantly longer. The repairman was polite and professional. My only complaint would be the price. It was a little steep but I believe they are in line with their competitors. You get what you pay for and they had excellent service. I will be using them in the future.
