"We had scheduled an estimate with them a week before today and they failed to show up. We also called and left a message on their voicemail early this morning and still no word.

-Christopher W.

"This provider came across as very conscientious, punctual, and responsive at first, but once the job began things started to go downhill. He shot blasted and vacuumed" the recreation room in preparation for
, and then moved onto the bathroom. There was a fair amount of thin set on the bathroom floor from previous tile that required him to grind the floor. He promised a clean work space, but instead blew concrete dust all over the lower level of the house including upholstered furniture, a desk with computer and other electronics, the television, all of my children's toys, etc. He didn't tarp anything, tape anything off, or prepare the area for such a mess! When I approached him about it he was annoyed and stated that he would clean up. He did a light dusting of flat surfaces only before he left so I cleaned as much as I could before he arrived the next day. My furniture will need to be steam cleaned! The next day, I asked him if our belongings should be covered so as to avoid further dust and he said that there was no need. I came into his work area a little while later to retrieve an item from my desk and he told me to cover my face because what he was mixing was not healthy to breathe in yet this white fluffy stuff was flying out of the bucket and landing on my furniture and the kids' toys again! I told him to stop and pointed out that again he was blowing debris around my house and if it wasn't healthy to breathe in then perhaps he should be mixing it outside! He became angry and told me that he couldn't talk about it at that moment, that he had to finish what he was doing. I became very angry and sent my husband in to deal with him. My husband instructed him to clean up and seemed to make peace with him. So, the job continued. The following day I had another contractor who deals with a different type of flooring in my house to provide an estimate for a floor restoration (a type of flooring that
does not service). Mr.
verbally grilled the other contractor on what he was going to do to restore the floor. It was an awkward situation. Mr
became angry and followed the other contractor out to his car. Again, I confronted Mr.
and told him that this behavior was unacceptable. He promised that it wouldn't happen again and we both agreed that there was a lot of stress in his own life as well as outside construction on our property at this time therefore making the job stressful. We tried our best to be understanding, and have open communication with Mr.
to no avail. The
coating on the rec room floor bubbled and he did a quick, unsatisfactory job of "fixing" it. Mr.
stated that if we wanted another coat of
to fix the floor it would cost another $1000 and he wouldn't be able to do it for another 3 weeks as he had other jobs to get to that he would not put off. The bathroom floor was unacceptable- bubbles, sharp raised areas, it is bumpy and rough and needs to be removed. He promised us smooth floors and failed to deliver on his promise. We notified Mr.
of our dissatisfaction. He did call my husband in a timely fashion, but then verbally assaulted him by cursing at him and calling him derogatory names. This man is not professional. He is sloppy, cuts corners, and has an unpredictable demeanor. His finished product is sub par and he offers no solutions. Please, do yourself a favor and do not hire him!

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 Scarborough


We are getting ready to sell our house and were in desperate need of weed removal and planting to spruce up our house.
Scarborough Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
was very quick to return all of my messages and give us a very reasonable quote for the job. The landscaping was done today and everything looks fantastic, we couldnt be happier with the way everything turned out. They were quick and did an amazing job with the detail in the planting and removed some weeds that were much more overgrown than they should have been.
Scarborough Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
also agreed to mow our lawn until the end of season so we know the lawn will look great and maintained while the house is showing. Highly recommended, if we were staying in the area we would definitely use them again for our new house.

I met with
Scarborough Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
to go through the scope of work and discuss ideas. It was a long wish list. He came back in a reasonable amount of time with a quote that tied back to my original wish list along with a drawing. His quote was consistent with what we discussed and did not attempt to upsell or add plants in areas I didn't want. His prices were competitive with my other quotes. He was receptive to my request to keep the overall design intact, but scale down the quantity of plants in order to keep within my budget. When I feared I would have to forego a bluestone patio, he was able to suggest a comprise of using man-made bluestone instead. He came back out one more time to finalize the design, get a sign-off and a deposit. In terms of scheduling the job, he worked with me to accommodate a trip I had planned. I was concerned if the work was completed before I returned that I wouldn't be there to water all the new plants. He offered to have one of his crew water them while I was gone if needed. The crew that did the work was very efficient and very neat. They cleaned up the job site every day. They finished what seemed like a heck of a lot of work in 4 days. My prior experience with landscapers had the owner on site with the workers each day, but that was not the case here.
Scarborough Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
did stop by halfway through to check the progress and to
Scarborough Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
the bed sizes and shapes. I wasn't home at that time, so he emailed me to let me know and to check in. I never had a problem getting him on the phone if I had a question and his crew proved themselves capable of self-direction. They knew what needed doing and got to it. Now that the work is done, I'm still happy with the design and very pleased with the installation. I've had neighbors I know and a few I don't know compliment me on the new landscaping. The paver landing on the side of the house passed inspection without a hitch and allowed me to close out a deck permit that had been left hanging by a prior contractor. They followed up with me via email to confirm that I was happy with the work and to see if I had questions. They also reconfirmed their warranties on the plants. I have no problem recommending

and would use them again.

Very disappointed! Made an appointment with
Scarborough Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
for an estimate and
Scarborough Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
showed up on time and was very knowledgeable and had good ideas about the options for putting in a paver path and sitting area in our backyard. We felt good about him and he said he would get us a quote within 24 hours. A week went by and still no quote so my husband called his cell phone thinking he had the wrong e-mail address or something and left a message. I also left a message for
Scarborough Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
saying we hadn't heard back and was there a problem, no response. We gave them the benefit of the doubt, maybe something happened, since most Angie's List providers are more responsive but I saw other members were getting work done. Another week went by and I left
Scarborough Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
another message (never able to reach anyone directly) saying we are disappointed and will leave a bad review so she finally called back. She insisted that

had spoken to my husband and sent an e-mail. My husband was sitting right next to me and said he hadn't heard from anyone. She then said the e-mail must have gone into his spam folder but he checked and nothing. She finally sent an estimate to us but the fact that it took 2-1/2 weeks of trying to reach them and no one calling us back is really unprofessional and we decided to move on. It was a waste of
Scarborough Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
's time to give an estimate on a job he didn't follow up on and a waste of our time calling them. If they are too busy or didn't want the job they should have at least called us back and said so.

Initially started as a Angie's big deal purchase but added additional work. Had a little trouble connecting but when the job was set they came out when promised. The workers were very good at their craft and asked us many times if we liked how it was looking. Finished in good time and cleaned up afterwards.

Bill did a fantastic job! He showed attention to detail and listened to what we wanted. He had to work with an existing red paved path that was on either side of the newly paved area and tied it in nicely so it looked like it was meant to be there. He came up with some design ideas we didn't think of and even layed some irrigation pipe under the bricks just in case we changed our mind about irrigation...and we did. The finished product looks great and we get a lot of compliments.
