was punctual and professional. He listened carefully to what we wanted and offered plenty of suggestions and ideas in our discussion. He" put us on his schedule and was able to do the work within a day or two of the original target. He come out just when he said he would to start work and they finished in just two days. The crew did a terrific job of working quickly and cleaning up properly. He handled the hiccups with leveling the yard by offering us a few options and helping us pick the best one.

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.

Landscaping, Landscaping & Lighting, Lawn & Yard Work, Lawn Fertilization & Treatment, Lawn Irrigation

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.

I set up the appointment on Monday for Tuesday morning. When they did not show up, I called and they were very apologetic. We rescheduled for Wednesday, and they still never showed up. He has still not called me.

Her responsiveness and delivery were so impressive. Her ability to listen and imagine what I was describing provided me with exactly what I wanted and even more! I was overwhelmed with the quality of plants she found and the turn-around time was even more impressive! I could not have had a better experience! I am a HUGE fan and would highly recommend her!

While the landscape designer is very talented, and did come up with a plan that I liked, it proved to be a distraction from actually getting the work done. When I realized

could not do any of the landscaping work, I had to scramble to find a landscaper in late May, to schedule work for June, when I realized that

was not responding to my needs nor willing to assist or advise. I was able to implement some of the landscape design, but ended up sodding much of the yard in order to comply with the city order before being taken to court and fined.

I am still amazed every time I look out the back windows and see the new patio, wall, and yard that
Minneapolis Landscaping Companies Provider Name Locked
created for us. Where before there was a barely usable yard, two decrepit walls, and a useless peninsula of raised earth, now there is a yard that both families can play in, a stone patio that we can relax on, and stairs that connect the back yard with the side yard and patio.
Minneapolis Landscaping Companies Provider Name Locked
took a space that was useless and made it into a highly functional, beautiful area that will be useful for years to come and will add value to both houses.
Watching the project come to life makes you realize the attention to detail required to make everything work, and appreciate the quality of the work that was done.
Minneapolis Landscaping Companies Provider Name Locked
was efficient in handling the project, but took the time where necessary to make sure the project was done right and that we were happy with their work. They were also able to bring in specialists on parts of the project, like the patio, who both saved time and raised the quality of the work performed.
The work alone would have been worth a great review, but how
Minneapolis Landscaping Companies Provider Name Locked
and his team did the work made this an amazing experience. He and his team were punctual, focused, and efficient. It was clear that
Minneapolis Landscaping Companies Provider Name Locked
utilized his engineering background on the project, and it was helpful to know that he could bring that perspective when necessary. In addition, the team was outgoing and worked around the fact that there were two families with young kids; our kids still ask about

and want to know when he is coming back.
Minneapolis Landscaping Companies Provider Name Locked
also makes sure to keep in touch, proactively answering questions about maintenance, planting techniques in the dirt areas, and best practices with the yard.
Last,

provided us with a reference to another service provider, one that handled cutting down a 40' maple in our backyard, and we couldn't have been happier with them.
Overall the backyard experience was terrific, and we are already planning new projects for

The work was done in a timely manner and all the nursery stock was excellent. After a rainstorm I was pleased the work had resulted in no water running in the garage. There were a few hiccups with the installation but they were quick to respond to my concerns and the owner,

The bed area was so deeply overgrown with invasive native plants, ferns and non-ornamental grasses it had killed off all other plants. The bed is over 30 feet long and at least 10 feet wide. The physical work was started and completed in 1 1/2 days by a crew of 6 extremely personable, professional, efficient women and men. Very impressive. They were respectful of my curious dog, and made sure she didn't sneak out the open gates. I will definitely work with them again. I am already recommending them to all the neighbors, family, and beyond.
