    Need Landscaping referrals

    I'm in Urbandale, so anywhere close is fine. I'm looking to put in a stone patio with a few other things. Any help is appreciated.

    Re: Need Landscaping referrals

    I call tell you who absolutely in no uncertain terms not to use...

    Al Carey Landscaping - located in Waukee.

    Worst experience with a subcontractor by far. Someone else in our same neighborhood had the same problems.

    If you want to fight and fight and fight with someone to get your job done at all, get strung along, have mediocre work done, etc - go with Al Carey.

    Re: Need Landscaping referrals

    Along these same lines, does someone have a good recommendation for Sod Installation? My father wants to have his front and back yards torn out and re-sodded. What should that cost?

    Also, he's lookin for a company that will maintain the landscape. Not the mowing as much as occaisional pruning, weeding, and clean up.

    I work for Country Landscapes--we do work everywhere in Iowa (locations in Iowa City area, Ames, and Clear Lake). Phone number is 1-800-794-9795.

    What are you looking to do? Do you want to build it yourself?

    Edit: Forgot to mention that both owners are ISU alumni and fans!

    My neighbor in Ankeny, and fellow ISU alum, had a very nice stone patio put in last year by another ISU alum as a side job. I'd be happy to send you his name if you'd like.

    Re: Need Landscaping referrals

    For landscaping ideas, the designers at Timberpine are awesome (ISU Grads) I've worked with Jay or Katie.
    www.timberpine.com
    As for sod, timberpine can do that too if asked, but I have found that if you are willing to lay it yourself (its honestly not that hard) you can save half as much. But if you don't want to do it yourself, I have had good luck with Capital City Landscaping. If he doesn't want to mow much, I would hire out a kid down the street, they are 100% more affordable than a place like Perficut.
