“I heard about His Workmanship through a google search online and I’m so thankful that I did. Eric was quick to respond to my emails and got me on the schedule right away. I had a huge landscape project that ended up taking well over 100 hours of labor. Each of the crews showed up on time and worked very hard shoveling river rock. I would highly recommend His Workmanship.” – Candy

His Workmanship crew was very prompt, thorough, and cooperative. Very happy with the work they did - will hire them again!
We were so pleased with the quality of the work , we have asked them back to do more work !
This is the 2nd time I have had His Workmanship crew out, and the 2nd time they did a wonderful job weeding and cutting - very happy! Very polite and very thorough. I have a larger yard than I thought! Thanks again!
The guys pulled weeds and totally cleaned out my flower bed on my patio. Very good job, and fast.
Arrived on time, communication with the crew was clear, and they accomplished everything contracted in the time expected. Will use again for next project.
This is a great little company to work with! From scheduling to the completion, all His Workmanship employees are kind, courteous and the utmost professional. I will definitely be calling on them to help with more projects. They arrived on the scheduled day and time and worked like they were working on their own homes.GREAT experience! I highly recommend His Workmanship!
We were so pleased with this company and the workers that came to our house!!! All around 5 stars!!!
Highly recommend Workmanship to help clean up your garden and flower beds! Excellent service, attitude and care for meeting your needs. Eric is extremely prompt with response and Matt along with his partner worked hard to complete an overwhelming project I couldn’t personally accomplish. The best compliment I can give is, I’ll be hiring them for return visit.
Amazing team, amazing communication, and a stellar job done by all. I can’t say enough good things about working with His Workmanship. Communication with Eric was exceptional. He promptly responded to our request for quote, followed up by scheduling our job within a week, and never left us hanging or wondering about our job status. We had a team of 4 guys for 8 hours to clean up a completely overgrown and out-of-control property. The team arrived promptly, listened carefully, and did everything that was asked of them. They worked well together as a group and individually. It was hot, and we had so many bushes, trees, and shrubs that needed to be removed as well as lots of weeding and mulching. They worked steadily from 9am until 5pm, and cleaned up nicely before they left. Highly recommend this company!
This company is professional and very prompt to respond and super nice guys as well. They did a great job with weeding and edging our beds. Will be doing business with them again!
The workers arrived promptly & immediately began what I had hired them to do. They worked efficiently & cleaned up after they were done.
The guys did an excellent job and finished weeding and mulching faster than expected! Would 100% hire again. 🙂
Cleanup of last year’s garden and completion of all the new planting accomplished in one visit by two very nice people. I strongly recommend this service.
Great work and great young men!! Highly recommend!
Getting appt set up was very easy. Workers were very friendly, helpful and worked fast. Did a very good job!
The guys had great communication, showed up on time, were friendly and completed the task. I highly recommend His Workmanship
The crew made quick work of cleaning up my over-grown yard. From the first step to completion, the His Workmanship team was responsive, professional, and efficient. I will definitely use them again and happily recommend them.
The team was friendly & thorough. They arrived on time and were very professional. Thanks for doing a great job weeding our overgrown flower beds.
I use His Workmanship in the Village of Summit. My projects have been to weed my many planting beds on a large property. The crew requires some training and direction by me; they are not landscape professionals. Once that was done, the crew (2) were hard working, professional and completed my requested work.Projects have been a bit difficult to schedule based on my calendar and His Workmanship crew availability but so far we have been able to work that out.I plan on continuing to use His Workmanship. They have a unique service that allows me, the customer, to define a project scope, like weeding, that can be difficult to find providers - and all at a reasonable cost.
Very professional - hard workers. Well worth the money.

Ready to inquire about rock installation in Twin Cities?

Frequently Asked Questions

Some rock installation companies charge by the cubic yard and others charge by the hour. It generally takes 1 person 1 hour to install 1 cubic yard of rock. Hourly rates tend to be $50 – $70 per hour per laborer. So if, for example, you need 10 cubic yards of rock spread, then it’ll probably cost between $550 – $650. As for calculations, 1 cubic yard = 1.15 tons and 1 cubic yard = 27 square feet.
River rock is the most popular choice for landscape rock around houses and it also happens to be one of the cheapest options too. River rock is usually priced at anywhere between $60 – $80 per yard. Crushed granite and pea gravel are on the lower price end too, but they are not nearly as common.
Most residential properties have river rock that is 3/4 inch to 1 1/2 inches. River rock is smooth, polished, medium-sized and adds a decorative aspect to garden beds. Pea gravel is the smallest option coming in at only 3/8 inches. Given the tiny size, pea gravel is a great choice for a playground or pathway. Crushed granite is a good selection if you have hilly terrain since it drains very well and will prevent puddling. Check out our recent blog to learn more about Landscaping Rocks to Use Around Homes: Type, Size and Color.
If you’re installing a different kind of rock than you already have in place, you will need to remove the old rock before laying new rock. While it may be tempting to just put new rock over old rock, this would be a mistake. The reason is because landscape rock that’s too deep will spill over into your grass. Also, if there is foot traffic on the rocks, the walking may cause the older layer of rocks to be exposed and this would look bad.
Start by clearing the rocks of any leaves or branches. If you have landscape fabric underneath the rock, then you won’t need to replace that unless it is in very bad condition. You should be left with an area that only has a weed barrier laid down and pinned to the ground. Then you’ll be ready to install stones.
You will need a shovel to scoop up the rocks and a wheelbarrow to relocate the rocks to areas that need it. Since rocks are heavy, you should only fill the wheelbarrow up about halfway full. Dump the wheelbarrow of rocks in separate areas so there are multiple rock piles. Then use a metal rake to spread out the rock evenly. For further reading on the topic, view our blog How to Spread Landscape Rock: Your Complete Guide to Installation.
You generally want to have a layer of rock that is roughly 2 inches thick. If you have less than that, the fabric will get exposed in some parts. If you have more than that, the rock may spill over the edging and into the grass. That said, when you order the landscape rock from a local supplier, you should err on the side of getting too much because it’s better to have rock too thick than too thin.
You should ask for a ballpark estimate on the total cost for your stone installation project. Be ready to share about how many tons of rock you ordered and how far the rock pile is from the landscape beds. Ask the rock installation service how long they’ve been doing it and what their process is like. Google their company name to make sure they have good reviews online.
