"Called in June. One employee came out to view the job, was suppose to return with owner to view the JOB and give an estimate..ASAP. Never returned. Called in August to request info" on the job and to see maybe we missed their call, and if they were still interested in the Landscaping/ Hardscaping job. Made an appointment for Saturday morning at 9am. 9:30am Saturday morning, no one called or showed, so I called the company and was told an email was sent the night before that they needed to re-schedule. Never received an email. Told the company.. I was no longer interested with their service, strike three..DONE My time was wasted!

"We have had Divine Lightscape lighting now for about 3-4 years! We love it and we are still getting compliments on it!
is very prompt to come out whenever" we have outages or issues with our timer - which by the way is very rare. The lights have been one of the best investments we have done to improve the overall
appeal to our home. At night it looks warm and inviting and the lighting that
designed around our backyard patio is amazing!

"I discovered this company by their booth at the Kitchen and Bath Show at the
Energy Center in downtown Cincinnati on 10/4/14. I spoke to the presenter about"
bulbs to replace halogen bulbs, which he said they could easily do. And even though they were located in Middletown he said they work all over and come to Cincinnati often. I called an spoke to--I think
--on 10/6. He said they would call before coming out on 10/7 with the particular bulb I required. On 10/7 they did not call or show up. I called him later in the afternoon and was told that he mistakenly took down my phone number but had it correctly now. They had a shipment coming in on 10/8 and again would call before coming over. And again on 10/8 I received no call and no one showed up. I think they had no intention of coming to my house. Because of this I sent an email to them on their website saying I no longer trusted them and did not want to make use of their services.

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.

ld not have been more pFrom my first call to the installation this company could not have been more responsive and professional. They promptly came out to see the job and give me a quote. Followed up to see if I had any question. Revised the qyoute for some changes I wanted to make and scheduled the install. They arrived today right on time, reviewed the location of all lights and did the install. They use quality products/ The crew was polite, anxious to please and as they were leaving told my wife that if there were any issues we should call and they would return to fix the problem. Could not have been more pleased.

is very eager to do what the customer wants and do it when he wants it done!! I have fired four lawn services in the past seven years for quality in lack of responsiveness. When
Farmington Landscape Lighting Provider Name Locked
leaves our place it looks the way it should look. He also does the little extras such as blowing the debris off the front and rear porches - he did not put any of it there but it makes the place look professional when he is finished. He never gets grass in the pool -- that has been a sore spot with prior services. He also does the job on the day I ask for it to be done. The last guy said I do your area on this day and if you don't want it done then, too bad!! I fired him too. And his office was only 0.7 miles from my house!! (That was JTL Lawncare.) Earthly Imaginations appears to be a startup company eager to serve and professional in their work. Highly recommended!!

Upon contacting
Farmington Landscape Lighting Provider Name Locked
, Keda (the owner), arrived at the appointed time and spent several hours with us. He was very courteous, professional, and knowledgeable and proposed a design solution. After the lighting was installed, he came back the next evening to give instructions on setting the transformer and to see if any of the lights needed to be adjusted. He suggested changing one of the lights to reduce glare, adding filters to the lights in the trees, and adding an additional light on the house. We agreed with the suggestions and he came back in a few days to make the changes. We are very pleased with the results and would highly recommend
