are consummate professionals. They take great pride in their work and it showed in the excellent job that they" did with our project. It took a while for us to put together the terms of a the project, but that was really an effort on both sides as we had to figure out our plans for our landscape.
and
's experience helped us work through that. Once we had plans in place, the workers were very focused on the job -- one and a half weeks from the first day to completion for a decent-sized job. We had a couple of minor post-project issues that they cleared up for us as well. Overall excellent experience with them.

Hardscaping

Creating a unique look for your yard means more than just cut grass, trimmed shrubbery and pretty flowers. Hardscaping, the creation of any man-made structures on your lawn, is just as crucial for overall appearance.

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.

Terrible, absolutely terrible. No professionalism at all, especially from the owner,
Daphne Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
. We have a fairly large yard and needed to have it sodded. They guys brought over the many pallets of new sod and left all of them sitting in the hot
Daphne Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
sun for 4 days. After multiple attempts at telling the guys that the sod needs to be placed, ASAP, they ignored us. So, after 4 days of sitting on the pallets, in the sun, they finally got around to it. As you can imagine, all of the grass went bad and died not too long afterwards. I never once got an apology for this. It was always one excuse after another. He always put the blame on me. I even had second opinions from other landscaping companies and was told that I was not at fault here. I did everything

asked. But, yet, it was my fault. There were so many other problems with

. The front walkway was/is a disaster. Not at all what we asked for. The plants/flowers they put in look horrible. Most of the plants they transplanted died. After all of this, mostly the issue with the sod, they didn't do really anything to help the situation. Remember, they never apologized. Never took blame. Legal action was considered towards them. I ended up resodding the yard myself and it looks great. I will never recommend

They were great. I got a free estimate the day after I requested it. The owner herself came and gave me the estimate. I told her the area I was considering the curbing around and left the rest up to her. She measured the area and gave me her suggestions on how to adapt my ideas for the best visual appeal and mulch and stone retention. We worked together to choose the best colors and pattern to match my home. I looked into other landscape edging and was surprised at the affordable price for the product they were offering. This edging is solid concrete and I know I will never have to replace it or worry about it losing its shape or color. Her crew came the next day to do my job. They arrived at 7 am and we're completely finished by 4 pm the same day. They kept the job site clean and the only evidence that they had been there by the evening was my beautiful curbing.

is a woman owned company and that was important to me. There was no intimidation factor that you sometimes feel with a strange man in your home. She was friendly and polite and the estimate was interesting and very informative. My yard looks amazing and I am the envy of the neighborhood. I would recommend

came out and assess the site. I gave him some dimensions but essentially told him I have a budget and wanted the most out of if. His experience and expertise helped tremendously as he crafted a multi-level patio with curves, sitting benched, columns, steps, and circles. Just for comparison, prior to him coming out and after, I had 3 other reputable companies came out for estimates. I gave all of them the same vage dimension details and budget; none of them took the time to draw a detail picture; one even quoted a cookie cutter patio for $15k. It was a no brainer me to go with

; though I was still skeptical since it was the first time I'd have him work on any of my home projects. Over the course of a few months as I observed and conversate with
Daphne Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
, I saw how detailed oriented he was and how flexible he is wiith coming up with alternative ideas to stay within budget as I came up with new ideas to add to the patio. I paid him base on completion percentage as the patio was complex and it was going to take time.

Biggest takeaway I got from this experience with
Daphne Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
was: 1) the guy has a knack for utilizing and designing patios for maximize esthetics and usability of the space and 2) he's personable and flexible and has a wealth of knowledge on pricing and designs. He does the work himself and hired help with he needs to so it minimizes overhead costs. I'd be confident to hire him again for future projects.

Well, we paid over $1000 for this & in advance. Owner
Daphne Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
Worthy sent workers here & upon completion he admitted to me it was a poor job. There are a lot of areas in sanded, then when they "sealed" they had not brushed the driveway filling in all cracks with sand & doing so prior to sealing...so they sealed sand on top of pavers.
Daphne Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
Worthy told us when we they were finished our pavers would look like glass...because he uses a high end sealer. I have asked for resolution, he has promised me he would make it right & he never has. We would like it fixed ASAP or a refund. Not sure if I have date of service correct - but it wouldn't let me choose anything except March...perhaps that's when I bought the special he was running.

.The procedure went very well! They started early(The crane operator was there first) . Then I went to work. When I came home at 5:00, the crew was cleaning up and all the trees I wanted were down. The stump was grinded and the large root that was heading to my homes' foundation was completely gounded down. I was very happy the way everything turned out!
I would use Mcullogh Tree Service again!

He was very professional and was able to work with us as issues arose. One main issue that we had was that the owner had a foreman who was in charge of the site. When issues arose we had to tell the foreman and the owner before it would be complete. The only real issue that we had with final project is that they forgot to install one drain in the my backyard and a lot of water accumulates there without escape.
