"Last year, I asked them to replace a dead evergreen tree. Their "expert" said they could replace it, but all the other similar evergreens were also going" to die. I replaced the evergreen anyway (using a different provider), and *all* the evergreens are thriving. So much for their "expert". This fall, I noticed that my grass is not nearly as green as the neighbor's lawn. I e-mailed and asked for aeration as well as an application of compost or manure to the lawn this fall. I was first told that
does not do aeration or applying manure/compost. After I replied that they had done aeration previously, they said they could do the aeration but not the manure/compost. If they are a complete landscaping company, I expected them to be able to do this. They told me I would have to call another company and coordinate with them. I asked if
could coordinate for me, much like they would do on any larger landscaping job that they might undertake. They refused, and said I would have to do that. Then, they scheduled the aeration. In the e-mail I received the day before they were to arrive, they said I had to
all my sprinkler heads with flags or spray paint to prevent them from damaging them. They have never asked me to do that before, and didn't give me much time to do so. When I questioned them, they said they're trying to be "proactive". Why did that interest in being "proactive" suddenly start? If this is a professional company, why was this new practice only now being implemented? As a result of my desire to have them provide more comprehensive services, as well as questioning the implementation of the new "sprinkler marking" policy,
fired me as a customer, saying I was no longer a good "fit" for their services. Good riddance. I will be asking my neighbors for their landscaping company since they seem to be having better results.

"Many extra projects have been completed. I ask if they can replace a shower head and it is done that day or the next with minimal expense.
" just laid a bicycle path in my back yard for my grandchildren. It looks great. Done in one day. Can't say enough nice things about this company.

How to find the right landscaper

There are several things to look for when hiring someone to work in your landscape.

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 Vineyard Haven


Bill is a nice guy, personable. Crew was very nice as well. Very good at layout / design. Finished product looks professional. Cons Responsiveness needs work. Many texts and voicemails before a response on many ocassions. (except for $) Bill needs to be on the site more often, sometimes the workers bickered/argued with each other over how something sould be done.......a bit amateurish. Make sure that everything discussed with the price is put in writing. A couple of things would have been overlooked had I not reminded him of what we discussed. Originally stated a one year guarantee on the installation (shifting of pavers), but refused to put it in writing when I paid the final installment. He said there shouldn't be a problem with the installation and that the wording of the guarantee would be too involved to write at the moment. So I asked him to email me the guarantee, which he agreed to. Bill never sent me the guarantee, even after I texted him a month later. I was planning to hire this company again for pavers in my yard, but changed my mind.

These guys came to our yard and brought a vision! We asked for a playspace for our boys, and they sat at our kitchen table and literally sketched out a playscape then and there. We were amazed! We didn't end up going with the first vision because it was more than our budget would allow - but they were great about coming back to meet with us to discuss a revised vision (within our budget) and sketched out something we love just as much. It is obvious that creating awesome spaces are a passion for GRG, and

and his team were great to work with. Always friendly and responsive to our requests. They even came up with the idea to shape one of our small trees/shrubs so the boys could use that as a playspace underneath.
It looks great - it's not an eyesore, which is exactly what I asked for. And we have gotten so many compliments. I wouldn't hesitate to use them again, in fact, we plan on adding onto our structure piece by piece as my boys grow.

the owner was very gracious and straightforward. He always kept appointments, and quoted with well-written estimates. If there was a delay, he kept us completely informed through his wonderful office manager. The crew he employed was made up of professional, polite and hard-working folks.

came out and determined there was a leak that was probably caused by the ground shifting or perhaps a small quake. He fixed it at no charge to us, he really stands behind his work even two years later ! We were pleased with his original work and really pleased with his follow up. We would not hesitate to hire him again or to recommend to him to others!

are fantastic. She and her team are responsive, engaging, creative and hard working. The results exceeded our expectations. We would definitely use them again and have already recommended them to our friends and family.

Suzzette arrived on time to measure for a free estimate. The price was not the least or most expensive.
The crew arrived on a Tuesday and removed the weeds with sod cutters and
Vineyard Haven Landscaping Companies Provider Name Locked
cats. On Wednesday, they installed several trucks of black dirt. The new sod was installed on Thursday and Friday.
When we called them about a sprinkler not working, they arrived in about an hour and repaired it.
The black dirt and sod appeared to be high quality. The installation was very professional. Lots of curved edgers and cutouts to go around.
Definitely looks better than the weeds did.


Excellent job on a really hot weekend. Great guys who worked hard. No only were they a bit less than others but they made suggestions on things that we should consider. There were some challenges with the ground that they had to adjust and work around but they did it and completed everything as promised.

I want to share my experience so that others do not get into similar situation with
Vineyard Haven Landscaping Companies Provider Name Locked
and his company. I rarely, if ever, give negative feedback in a public forum, hoping instead to work out any issues before resolving to post a negative experience. But this problem has gone on for months and has been extremely disappointing.
Vineyard Haven Landscaping Companies Provider Name Locked
's employees arrived at our home that was undergoing renovation.
Vineyard Haven Landscaping Companies Provider Name Locked
, nor a manager with his company arrived on site with his workers and he had not reached out to let me know to expect workers that day. The doors were open so that workers could come in and out in other parts of the house because much work was underway. The workers proceeded to go into the wrong room (with the wrong fireplace) and demolish the existing - extremely valuable - antique French marble fireplace.
Another craftsman at the house notified me of what was happening, I tried urgently to reach
Vineyard Haven Landscaping Companies Provider Name Locked
by phone. He did not answer and did not respond to my calls and emails for 4 days. i later found out that he was on vacation. Immediately upon learning that the wrong fireplace was destroyed, I rushed to the house and asked the workers to explain. They had been instructed by
Vineyard Haven Landscaping Companies Provider Name Locked
to take down the existing fireplace and to begin work to install a stone fireplace. Because no management was on site with
Vineyard Haven Landscaping Companies Provider Name Locked
's company, the workers made an assumption about which fireplace was to be demolished and went to work. Of course, the wrong fireplace in the wrong room was destroyed and needless to say I was devastated. The fireplace was a beautiful antique from France that I had personally sourced.
To date,
Vineyard Haven Landscaping Companies Provider Name Locked
has said that he would work with his insurance company to cover these damages but I have had to reach out to him many times over 4 months to get updates and to prod this along. I learned today that his insurance company will not look into his claim (as he did not have appropriate coverage).
Vineyard Haven Landscaping Companies Provider Name Locked
has expressed that he will not pay out of pocket for the damage and loss. I am looking into other ways to manage the issue through my own insurance company or through legal assistance or both. In the interim, the other work that was to be done was left unfinished.
I trusted
Vineyard Haven Landscaping Companies Provider Name Locked
during this process and believed that he would take responsibility for the damage. I had him continue work on the walkway and he was paid for that work with the understanding that the project would be supervised by him. I have paused any work on the existing two fireplaces that were affected.
This has been very costly and has delayed the renovation of the house. I am disappointed and wanted to share this so that others could be warned about the possibility of damage and lack of follow up to find a resolution to the problem.
