"I have a pond with a waterfall in my backyard which had been leaking through the previous winter. Because I had fish in it, I had to make sure the water level was maintained - that" was just a pain in single digit weather. I had
pretty redo the entire water feature to take care of the leak, and to install a filter which would help with the algae problem ( which is the huge problem in hot weather). They also set it up so that it actually automatically refills itself, without me having to go out and do anything. The work got done in less than a week, and the entire set-up is working beautifully.

"We met with owner
. He talked with us about what we might have in mind, made suggestions and we decided on a plan. He and his workers "dug" in, completed" several jobs in our plan and
followed up to be sure we were satisfied or if there was anything else he could do. We plan to do more as the season progresses and timing permits.

"The company is professional and knowledgeable. The work was of high quality. They are basically the only company still in business that focus on ponds and waterfalls. Some other" companies do this work as a part of a broader category of landscaping, but
focuses on ponds and waterfalls. We would recommend them to anyone who would like a pond and/or waterfall. The small store at their office has supplies for ponds and Koi fish that are not available anywhere else.

The sound and movement of water is transforming, especially in the garden. Angie's List contractors discuss home water features that can liven up your yard, such as fountains, ponds and waterfalls.

Jo Ellen Myers Sharp, the Hoosier Gardener, gives advice on how to winterize water features in the yard. Preparing features such as water gardens, ponds, waterfalls for winter helps avoid damage from freezing and thawing water.

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.

What they did first didn?t work, and then I had them come back again. When it was still not holding water I called them and they came out and replaced the pump. They did additional stone work to try to solve the problem, but it did not help. I then received a bill and they charged me for a warranty exchange of the pump. They charged me $75 for it. They also charged me for labor and a valve. I called to dispute the bill as the pump replaced was under warranty. I told them that I was not happy with the invoice. I was not happy with

I saw their display at the Home Improvement Show at the Fairgrounds in early April. I was pleased to find someone who did the kind of installation that I wanted. I left my contact information and got a call about 2 weeks later.

came to the house on April 22 with an agreement to install a 3' Basalt Column with a 1000
Indianapolis Fountain Installers Provider Name Locked
per hour pump with plastic basin, decorative gravel and spotlight, basically a kit that needed minimal excavation since it was above ground. Should be an easy job. No word from him for 2 weeks. I called. He had been busy. After several more calls he finally came and installed it. My 3' column turned out to be 2' and it only worked for 2 days until the hose sprang a leak and the water became just a trickle. More calls. "They must have picked up the wrong rock." and "We'll get you another pump". I had asked for specs on the pump so I would know that it was the 1000 gph pump listed in the agreement. Never got them. They finally found the 3' rock and a new pump and got them installed. The cord on the new pump does not reach the outlet on the back of my house so my 50' extension cord on a reel fills the 4' gap. Yes, I have my fountain and it does what I want. I am not calling him again to hear any more excuses or stay home from work for him not to show up just to get 4' of cord. I will do it myself. I'm glad to have the fountain. It's very calming. After the frustration of dealing with this company I need something to make me calm.

and his crew personally installed this wonderful water feature and it is even better than we hoped for. The pondless waterfall is great because it recirculates underground in a bed of gravel, therefore we have no standing water which was a concern for me, we have small children.

offered us many choices and worked with us for several weeks prior to deciding on this option. We were also installing a patio and
Indianapolis Fountain Installers Provider Name Locked
was great about working around that and finding a design that would flow well with the patio. They installed the feature in about a day and took great care in the design of the rocks and the falls. We do not have a huge backyard, but this is definitely the ''crowning touch'' to a great amount of landscaping we have done recently. There is very little maintenance for the waterfall, and provides us a nice little retreat in our own yard!

Indianapolis Fountain Installers Provider Name Locked
is extremely professional and knowledgeable. He not only installed wiring to the water fountain I had purchased for my porch, but installed the kind of outlet with a cover and switch for easily turning on and off the water fountain and light. So instead of just providing me with the basic outlet as other electricians would have done in the past, he knew the fountain had no on/off switch and thought ahead enough to get an outlet with and easy on/off switch.

I left a message on monday. The recording stated that the retail store was only open on friday and saturday. I waited until then based on the possibility that perhaps no one was checking the messages during the week. I have to think that this is not a great way to run a business but my experience with angie's list companies has always been excellent and I was willing to wait. Unfortunately, I never heard anything from them. No phone call. Nothing.
