Birmingham Landscape Lighting from people just like you.

(who is the owner of
) installed and maintained the outdoor landscape lighting at our old home. When we got ready" to build our new house, we wanted the landscape lighting installed before we moved in and
was our first and only choice for the job. We put
in touch with our builder in early December with a very tight time frame to complete the job prior to our scheduled closing. In spite of the fact that it was an extremely busy time,
delivered. The lighting is beautiful and exactly what we wanted. We very much appreciate
's attention to detail and delivering exceptional customer service and highly recommend


"Landscape to the present day. Then in 2013
returned to landscape our backyard which included enclosing pool equipment, adding decking to" coordinate with existing deck, adding deck railing, landscape lighting, installing new irrigation system, creating a rock walkway, building a short boulder retaining wall, laying a brick paver walkway, laying a round brick paver seating area which includes a firepit, many large tree and shrubbery plantings, and a large variety of smaller plantings. They continue to maintain this landscape to the present day. These men are very pleasant and easy to work with. They developed a beautiful landscape design. I didn't want some of the plants that were suggested. They listened and found really nice alternatives. I am loving these plants! The teams arrived early each day during installation and worked very hard. So, both installations went quickly. I never had any concerns about my security around these men. Likewise, in the years that they have maintained our yard I've never been concerned for the safety of myself or my dogs. They have always been professional and kind. I must admit that we went through a time period when I couldn't get the maintenance team to follow-up on some issues we were having with struggling plants. This lasted for about two months. That was frustrating, and we lost some plants. However, they guarantee their plants, so the plants have been replaced, and we are back to the excellent service that we had known previously. We regularly receive compliments on our yard from personal friends to strangers driving down our street. We greatly enjoy working with this company.

Regular maintenance is essential to keep your outdoor lights working properly. Waterproof connectors are an important component of a landscape lighting system.

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.

Natural stones will have some degree of variance given the lack of pre-made consistency.


1/2" is too much from stone to stone and should be able to be fixed with additional leveling sand. 




Outdoor Lighting reviews in Birmingham


The owner of
Birmingham Landscape Lighting Provider Name Locked
Birmingham Landscape Lighting Provider Name Locked
Bennetch, answered his cell phone on the second ring, and when I told him that three of our lights were out, he and two of his employees were at the house within an hour. One of his men went right to work, and not only determined that a wire had likely been cut, he found the cut within minutes. No hunting around digging all over the lawn......he found it on the first try! I watched the repair, and it looked like it would hold for 100 years. And of course when the lights were turned on, all three came on. I couldn't have been happier. And the price was right.
- James P.

Prompt with estimate and gave me options and suggestions. The price he quoted was accurate and the work was done professionally and quickly. The materials he used are of the highest quality. I couldn't be more pleased. I wish he could do work at my weekend home too. I recommended him to my neighbors.

- Tanya C.

Wonderful service. Team was timely, efficient and professional. Lighting looks great. We are very happy with their work.
- Ron D.

promptly came out to discuss what we wanted and to provide estimate. Scheduled install. A spot opened up in their schedule and they were able to start the work earlier than they anticipated. Install took 3 hrs, which was less time than we were expecting. One of the lights dimmed within a week and they were out that same day to replace the bulb. We are very satisfied with the work done and the professionalism of everyone. Highly recommend.
- Leigh Ann M.

Excellent, professional service. Beautiful work and responsive to personal needs. Would highly recommend for

installation at a home or office. May use them again some day to do the back yard and patio.
- Melissa C.

Perfect service - professional and informative regarding types of lighting and pricing - arrived promptly at the arranged time - work was done neatly and as explained - highly recommend this company!
- jolletta D.

Mr. Bennetch and his staff worked quickly and efficiently to

the wiring and place the lights. My impression was that this was a team of competent men who were both experienced and comfortable working together. Upon completion of the installation, there was no evidence of digging or plant disturbance/damage in our recently landscaped yard.
Shortly after the work was done, Mr. Bennetch drove by our home to view the lighting. He called the following day to ask if I was satisfied with the work. We both agreed to add a seventh pathway light.
In addition to my satisfaction with Mr. Bennetch's design, I found him quite easy to communicate with. We discussed halogen versus

lighting, and he persuaded me that I needed less lighting than I had been prepared to purchase.
I have rated this work for price because it is required by Angie's List in order to post the review. I did not, however, seek competitive bids for this job.

was recommended to me because of the type and degree of landscape illumination I wanted to achieve. So I don't feel that I can fairly assess this company's charges against that of a competitor.
