arrived on time and reviewed the proposed project quickly. His mailed estimate with a rough drawing and additional information arrived a few days later, and" we appreciated the complete packet. His estimate was on the high end of what we received, but not much more costly than the others. We found all of the estimates we received to be fairly comparable, but decided to use another highly rated company for the project that had a slightly better offer and we felt we would work well for us.

"Weather caused a few delays but they finally came out on a Saturday. Did not get a call that they were coming but we where here. The crew was friendly and worked hard. They said" it would take 2 hours after putting up scaffolding but the repairs were harder then they anticipated so it took 5 hours. They replaced 40 bricks, cleaned out bad mortar, put new mortar and
pointed it. The work looks good. It took so long they could not rinse off but next rain will make it look better. There was lots of falling brick on the driveway. They swept up and put most in the trash. Minor issue was that they did sweep and hose some into the mulch bed which I had to vacuum up with a shop vac. Only took 5 mins. Overall very good and I would hire again.

Some of the most common small hardscape projects include patio stones, sidewalks and retaining walls.

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.

Pavers are low maintenance. Keep your paver walkway or patio clean with regular sweeping and some soap and water. Use a sealer to keep pavers looking like new.

Rocks and boulders can add the final touch to your landscape. They can provide seating, work as steps or retaining walls, and help define plant beds.

Pavers offer versatility and individual style for driveways and paths. They can be adjusted or replaced more easily than concrete and provide better drainage.

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.

They are fast and do beautiful work. They were very flexible and adapted to a complicated last minute request/change that we requested. Fantastic crew. We hope to hire them in a couple years to do our driveway and an additional Stonescape design in the backyard.

originally bid on the firepit, walkway, deck and patio. The drainage and flower beds were added later. Overall the work
Lindsay Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
did looks fantastic. He and his crew showed great craftmanship -- from the placement of the boards on the deck to the spacing of the pavers on our curving walkway, everything was done with great care. Even the center of the firepit, which is now covered with ash after a few fires, looked beautiful.
Like any major job, there were a few things that didn't go as planned, including the need for drainage and hence expanded flower beds. That was a large expansion of scope, but
Lindsay Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
was able to react quickly and get things done. He and his crew dealt with surprises well, and there were a few, including a rain deluge when installing the drainage. They were all friendly, worked diligently, and cleaned up the job site regularly.
Lindsay Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
was very helpful with design and color choices. He even arranged for us to visit prior jobs so we could see different paver choices before selecting one. He knows his stuff and provided good guidance. There were some choices we made that I had expected
Lindsay Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
would make, but instead he provided guidance and options, so my advice would be to be prepared for that. The result of this approach is that the job reflects exactly what we wanted, so the payoff is worth it.
With respect to cost,
Lindsay Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
was competitive with the others bidder on the original scope, and the added scope was priced fairly. We were not looking to get something done on the cheap. You do get what you pay for, and with
Lindsay Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
that's very high quality work.

Lindsay Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
has a big, positive personality, so is very easy to work with. He was always willing to talk or stop by when needed. He was also responsive to problems. There was one board of the deck that was warping as it dried --
Lindsay Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
replaced that and a couple of other boards I did not notice but that he saw would have a problem.

The 2 man crew did an excellent job with the composition of the stones on the stairs, patio and retaining wall. The were kind, courteous and professional, throughout the entirety of the project. Our house looks fantastic!
Spendy, but worth the quality of the stone and work
