"Bill and his team were an absolute pleasure to deal with throughout our backyard redesign project. Bill is extremely knowledgeable about landscaping, hardscaping" and design. He was very helpful in offering great recommendations on the art of the possible and what would look good while still listening intently and asking good questions about what we wanted to accomplish. We changed several things and added several new items as the project went on and Bill and his team flawlessly adapted to our requests and delivered a fantastic transformation of our back yard. I couldn't be happier with the result and I would definitely use
again as well as recommend to my friends. Note: Bill & team are completely hands-on and you will see him daily onsite making sure everything turns out great....the only downside is that it took almost 5 months to get to the top of his backlog but it was well worth the wait in my opinion.

"Super and fast. These people knew what they were doing. If I have any complaint, it would be the very low slope given to the drain from driveway to street. The" outlet to the street is only slightly lower than the inlet from the driveway, so that when there is a very very heavy rain, water accumulates on the driveway, because there is literally nowhere for it to go. Not sure how this could have been mitigated. NOTE: This is the same company that goes by another name: Pacific Outdoor Living.

Finding the right landscaper can help ensure your yard is taken care of to perfection. (Photo by Katie Jacewicz)

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 can be a major undertaking, and a long-lasting one. Start with a clear plan of what you want to achieve, then decide what parts you want to do yourself and what would require a professional. If you're thinking of selling your home, a bit of landscaping can give it the 'curb appeal' it needs.

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 requested an estimate for landscaping services. They scheduled to come to my house on the weekend to accommodate my availability. They walked around and reviewed the property and made suggestions. In a few days I received an emailed link to an online estimate and a follow up phone call. Of three providers contacted,

from Golden Tree came out to our house to give us an estimate for converting
our grass lawn in the front yard to a drought tolerant landscape, and for
reworking the sprinklers in the back yard to be more efficient.
Dothan Landscapers Provider Name Locked
showed us pictures of his work. We were particularly
impressed with his knowledge of drought tolerant and low water plants. He showed us pictures of his work on his
tablet, and showed us what the areas look like initially, then after 1 and 2
years. This is particularly helpful, because you can see what landscaping will
be like in the future and be assured the area will not look overgrown or look unkempt. He knows the rate at which each type of plant will grow and its maximum circumference and height, which is important in
planning out how the landscaping will look in years to come.

has a deep

ensured that our landscaping includes plants
so that something will always be blooming or have color each and every month of the year. He planned it out so
that the taller plants are at the borders of our yard, next to our neighbors,
and then the plants get shorter and closer to the ground as they approach our
walkway. This gives a dimensional look
and keeps the front looking tidy.
All of the workers are Golden Tree’s own employees, and

He replaced the wasteful, spraying lawn sprinklers with an efficient drip
irrigation system. (Water usage by grass sprinklers is measured in gallons per minute, while drip
irrigation systems water usage is measured in gallons per hour.)
He gave us a written estimate and stuck to that. He was also flexible. For example, we changed our minds and wanted a
ribbon of brick border instead of the composite on either side of our driveway
he had recommended and he put in the brick for us.
The entire process from start to finish took 4 weeks and that included 5 days when
the work stopped due to rain or muddy conditions.

and his workers were always punctual. Post
drip irrigation work was included in the price to ensure that the newly planted
foliage was getting adequate water and the system was working as planned. We
love the colorful look of our new landscaping and look forward to a much
reduced water bill.

I was putting in a new pool, so my backyard was totally destroyed by the construction process. But the new pool was beautiful, and I needed beautiful landscaping to complete my new backyard paradise. I solicited 5 landscape companies to provide quotes on my design. All 5 came out and were nice, but in the end I got 3 bids. From the first time I met him,

Brown, the owner of

, distinguished himself as the most responsive, the most "customer-centric" (cared the most about understanding what I wanted), and the most expert in plant materials. The bonus for me was that his proposal was also the most affordable - not by much but enough to make a difference. The best thing about his proposal was that he was totally flexible to change things on the fly, and he never ever pushed to upsell or add more expensive things in. In fact, he was often conscientious about recommending ways to save money.

was happy to quote my initial design but as we went along, I turned the design over to him, and he was even kind enough to bring out a designer to document a better design in CAD electronically so we could play around with it. What was super cool about working with

was that he spent half a day with my wife and I at the nursery (where he knows everybody) and extremely patient while working with us to pick out the exact specimens that we wanted. When the job started, those exact plants showed up. He also showed up with some additional items for us to look at and was totally fine with taking those back if they didn't work out. He even went above and beyond by personally searching for this outrageously beautiful large pindo palm that just "made' the entire pool landscape perfect. The installation was done by his employees and they did everything right to a high level of quality. The stone work was excellent and all plants were installed very professionally.

Their PM my call and set up an appointment to come out to the house. He came out on time and was extremely pleasant and professional. He spoke with my husband and I about what our needs were and helped us with ideas. Later he called and provided an estimate. The only reason we didn't get services performed was because it was too late in the season to get trees. We will re-adress in the spring.

came out and did a walkthrough with me, he's extremely knowledgable, straight to the point and has been very helpful (and very responsive to a barrage of email from me). We had them install a new control box for our drip irrigation system, clean up our yard and remove a number of plants that were either in bad shape, or doing more harm than good. The yard is already healthier (and better looking) and we're looking forward to continued help from FYGN, highly recommended.
