"
was to do work on Monday,
20, but did no show up until Wednesday. Grass looked bad, especially on top of the pile." They said it was green under the top
and it would be nice and green in a few weeks. 48 of the squares never showed any green & I had to replace the 48 squares at my expense. ($254. My son did the labor). The grass was dead when installed. I sent pictures to Company representative but they did not bother to come and look at the dead squares. They broke two sprinkler heads and covered up another one while performing the work. I had to replace the broken heads and uncover the other one myself. After talking to the company once and texting them twice they did not return future contacts. They left a mess on the sidewalks and in the street which I had to clean up. When I explained to the company representative, on the phone, that I had paid $1,350 and I expected the grass to be fresh and the work done in a better manner. His response was "that's not much money" My yard is a small zero lot line property and they did the front yard only. This was my first use of a company that said they were a member of Angie's list. Very disappointing.

Landscaping & Lighting

On this episode of Chat with the Experts, we talk with Ralph Redmond of Indiana Outdoor Lighting about how to spruce up your landscape with lighting.

Lighting, Landscaping & Lighting, Decks & Porches

The old fixtures we replaced were nothing to write home about, and as a result, this simple swap has made all the difference. With Scott as my hand model, we’ll show you how to install an exterior light in no time!

Landscaping experts say eco-friendly organic products may take a year or more to transform grass, but the result leads to lower water bills and healthier lawn.

Picking plants and shrubs for your lawn's landscape isn't as easy as choosing what looks best or has the most colorful blooms.

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.

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.

was awesome! We emailed a couple different companies to get some information.
Grand Rapids Landscape Lighting Companies Provider Name Locked
called back within a few hours and then even scheduled to come out the same night. He looked at our property online before coming out so that he would have an idea of what he would recommend before ever even stepping foot onto our property.
He took a good deal of time examining the landscape and then going over his ideas/recommendations with me. You can tell he is very experienced and knows what he is doing. He even knew the different types of trees and plants we had and how they could best be illuminated.
Once we had agreed upon a plan
Grand Rapids Landscape Lighting Companies Provider Name Locked
did a quick placement (by quick I mean wiring above ground, not that he rushed it; he took the time to make the shadows on our front porch and wall perfectly symmetric) of the potential lighting setup and left it at our house for us to experience a few nights and decide how we like it, or if we would like to change anything. Then after we loved it, he came back the next week to do the full installation and bury all the wiring (and of course added an additional light we had originally decided against, but after the few days of trial decided he was right :).
Overall,
Grand Rapids Landscape Lighting Companies Provider Name Locked
was prompt, punctual, courteous, knowledgable, and honest. Not sure what more you could ask for in someone you are looking for to provide this type of service.
We love our new outdoor lighting system, and we are glad we found

He listens to your input and has an upbeat personality. I did not get a written bid - a risk, but all went well and I have already recommended them to a friend. Overall a very positive experience.

We made the mistake of buying and Angie's List Big deal. That was our
first mistake. These deals always go wrong, and Angie's List is not
good about refunding them. Buyer beware. This company came out to look
at our fridge, never went beyond asking what the problem was. They said
that a part had to be ordered and they would contact us about the next
day. The called us back, gave us a quote, and said they were ordering
the part. 3 weeks later, I followed up, and no one at the company had
any idea we were waiting, and no idea what the problem was. Had to
explain everything all over. They apologized, asked for a model #. I
gave it to them and they said a technician would be out Friday. Friday Morning, the tech calls, has no idea why he is coming or what we were calling about. At that point we fired them.

This contractor is unprofessional, dishonest and over priced. He hires untrustworthy workers who leave garbage everywhere, waste in the bathrooms, and possibly steal. He takes advantage of you however he can by lying about price, trying to steer you to the most expensive options and suppliers so he can cut his own deals, and takes shortcuts whenever he can pull one over you. I challenged him on price and workmanship, and like a child, he stopped work in the middle of a project he contracted for, leaving my house a mess, garabage everywhere, leaving me a bill for work he didnt complete, and refused to answer calls. Do not hire 4
