"Bought an Angie's List "Big Deal" to replace our sinking, uneven brick front walkway, which was always under water after a rainstorm.
" at
was extremely easy to work with. When he came out to estimate the project, he explained why we were having drainage issues and recommended grading the walkway and the area that was causing the problem. He met us at the store to help us pick out the pavers we wanted, and was always responsive to our questions throughout the project.
's crew was exceptionally professional and obviously took great pride in their work. They took their time and did the job right. Although the project ended up being more expensive than we originally planned to spend, we're thrilled with the result. My husband -- never one to be overly complimentary -- said the work "exceeded his expectations." That's high praise, indeed! We would definitely use
again.

How to find the right landscaper

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

Landscaping

Landscaping your property adds beauty, value and curb appeal. Start with a clear plan of what you hope to achieve, then decide if want to do it yourself or hire a professional.

A modest landscaping budget doesn’t mean your lawn has to look like you cut corners on it.

Poison ivy is probably the most widely known poisonous plant, thanks to the phrase “leaves of three, let it be,” but there are many more living dangers lurking in your yard.

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 -

http://www.tractorbynet.com/forums/attachments/build-yourself/117273d1230307978-stump-grinder-questions-stumpgrinderred.jpg

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.

Firstly, they actually provided a
Cincinnati Landscaping Companies Provider Name Locked
, DIY solution that saved me hundreds of dollars related to my drainage issues that none of the other providers had mentioned so I appreciated that. I didn't get confirmation that they were coming on that day so I wasn't able to be home at all while they were working, which worked out just fine. They did a great job of tidying everything up afterwards and I have no issues to report. My drainage issues are still not resolved but this was a step in the right direction and affordable compared to other options I had. They were very professional and I would definitely consider hiring them if I decide to do some more aesthetic landscaping projects later.

They were fabulous! They were prompt. They gave me several dates to choose from, and were able to come out on a day that I was off. They went above and beyond the service that I expected. They were hard working and polite. They did not leave until the job was done, even went over their contracted time. They took everything with them, no debris was left behind.

Called
Cincinnati Landscaping Companies Provider Name Locked
to fix the leak of a new pond. Told him I thought it leaked at the skimmer because it was going down too fast. He said the previous guy made "multiple mistakes and he was the best and could make it perfect". So i believed him. I gave him $3000. He emptied it out, power washed the rocks and rebuilt the waterfall and raised the skimmer.Next day still leaked. Then he wanted $1250 to replace the new liner, which had a 25 yr quarantee. Next day still leaked. Again I asked about the skimmer. He then rebuilt his own waterfall again. This took 2-3 ft off the length of my pond. Leaks. He puts a dye tablet in and says "It's the skimmer"...after taking my $4250 he finally looked at what I said. I trusted him to do the right thing in the beginning.He was late or didn't show or came when I was at work so hard to watch the entire build. The worse part was when he LIED UNDER OATH and said " no, she never talked about a leak" Couldn't believe it. 3 months and he never heard that !! Just thought I wanted rocks moved around I guess . His new number is 513-802-4587 .

came out and
Cincinnati Landscaping Companies Provider Name Locked
up a plan to fill in our front and back landscaping. He placed colored flags that indicated which plants would go where. I thought that this was visually helpful. He suggested plants that would fill out and keep us from having to mulch so much every year. He used his ipad to show exactly what he was suggesting to be planted and went over it all with me. He said that they make their own compost also to go around the plants.
We had them come out and plant the plants in the back, which went very well. We weren't even here. I had a couple of questions that I texted
Cincinnati Landscaping Companies Provider Name Locked
about and he texted back right away. He is enthusiastic, knowledgeable and professional.
We were able to plant the plants in the front ourselves since there were just a few and with the flags there, it made it very easy.
I would definitely recommend this company!

the owner initially came to see what we were wanting to do. We explained that due to an auto accident in spring of 2014 we had basically lost a year of landscape maintenance so we formulated a plan to tackle the jungle. His crew came back and performed their tasks flawlessly as well as doing other things that had not been planned, such as trimming tree branches and clearing out other areas which needed work as they progressed through the day. The day after,

Outstanding job. We had an issue with water in our backyard and it was causing our deck to sink in one corner.
Cincinnati Landscaping Companies Provider Name Locked
graded the land away from the house, installed a stone patio and replaced the deck. Lots of special touches. Our window wells used to fill completely with every rain. Since Horizon installed the patio, the window wells have been completely dry, despite huge amounts of rain this spring. We have had one or two little issues with the patio, including the loss of some small stones, and some of the concrete loosening between the patio stones. Overall, everything looks great and I am happy with the service for the price.
