"He spent less than a hour. I did not stand and watch him during the entire process because the space was very small. I don't know what he did to the washer" except wipe the seals. I think he ran a hot cycle through the washer with a cleaner. I really did not see him do anything to the dryer but I heard his vacuum cleaner, so I assumed he sucked out all the collected lint and fluff. It did not appear that he moved either of these appliances so I do not believe he vacuumed out the dryer vent hose, although he said he did. The refrigerator required some work. He vacuumed the coil. He conditioned the seals and replaced the water dispenser hose to the tune of $140.00. Replacing the hose took about 5 minutes. I did not receive a written statement of tasks completed. I told him to move the throw rugs while he was working. All he did was fold them over. I was unable to remove the rugs because of back surgery. He had to come in through the front door, and wore nothing to protect my floors and rugs from his dirty work boots. His cleanup was unacceptable as he left me with dirty tile floors in the kitchen and laundry rooms to clean myself. He tried to sell me a surge protector for the refrigerator for over $100. I bought my own at Home Depot for $6.97. As far as the remaining appliances were concerned: He opened the microwave and looked inside, opened the oven done and looked inside, ran a hot cycle through my dishwasher, and looked into the dark disposal unit and said it was all fine. I could have most all of these things myself. $99.00 was an outrageous charge for the services I received. This is the second bad experience I've had with Angie's List. I will not use the service again.

"I was looking for a company to do landscape lighting for my front yard. I used Angie's List to find providers. The top name was Midwest Lightscape. The 2nd" name was the company who installed sprinkler system for us. I got quotes from both these company. When I called Midwest,
from Midwest took all my details and then she called me backed with a date where they wanted to come and see the house and give a demo. On the scheduled day,
and
came out to our house and
went around with me to go around the house. He was taking notes. He then gave us the design of what he was planning. We liked what he had to offer. They waited till it got little darker. Meanwhile both of them did the setup and they were ready for Demo. We were impressed by their work. We got a glimpse of how the house would look after we have our lights. done. They were very open to take our suggestions. They moved around the lights so that we can get different light setup.
and
gave details about their products. They spoke about the warranty of their products. They are one of the distributers of the products they install. Their price was on the higher side but they were installing all copper/brass product. They were using hight quality product and they were competitively priced for that. Between the 2 provider we decided for Midwest because of the demo, promptness and the quality of product. On the day of installation,
and
came out to our home on time. There were 2 places where installing involved some digging and some good way to burring the low voltage wire. They did not charge any extra for that. The price of each item included all the charges. They were done with their installation job in around 4 hrs. Evening when the lights came up, we were amazed to see our home. It looked totally different and transformed. The demo was like a trailer and the actual lights were like a Movie. There was a huge difference in what we saw in demo and the actual lights. This maybe because the lights used in demo might be used ones and these were all new lights. don't get me wrong, the demo is really good but the actual lights are at least 10 times better than demo.
explained me how the timer worked. In the evening, the lights did not turn off. I reached out to
and the same evening both
and
were there to replace the faulty timer and they stayed back to see the lights. Both of them are real professionals. They are good human beings as well. In few days to our surprise, we got a gift in the mail too. Not sure if everyone gets that but that was a bonus for us. They also honor a discount of around $300 where you get the transformer free if you tell them that they got referred to Angie's List.

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.

Nick and his crew were very clean, punctual, and installed the lighting in the appropriate locations without any problem.
They did a nice job placing the transformers, and you cannot even tell where they dug the trenches to run the wiring underground.
Nick and
Farmington Landscape Lighting Companies Provider Name Locked
are very professional and responsive. They offer a maintenance plan with email reminders. With this plan, they'll come out to your home a few times per year (as needed) to fix any problems, check bulbs, etc.
I would recommend

without reservation to anybody who has outdoor lighting needs. We plan on call them back to add lighting next spring as we add additional landscaping.

I called and received a quick response back, and they were at my home in a few days. Very friendly and checked our existing system that was already installed in the house that we purchased recently. Changed the light bulbs and positioned them correctly on the landscaping. They also answered all my questions thoroughly, were very knowledgeable and professional. I would recommend them for any maintenance of existing systems, it was a very good experience and we will use them again in the future.

Spoke with

on the phone & he was able to come out to our several days later. What really sets

' apart is
Farmington Landscape Lighting Companies Provider Name Locked
's ability to show us a demo of what our lighting will pretty much look like before the actual installation. The next day we received a very detailed quote on the lights to be used, cable to be installed as well as the transformers cost for both front & backyards. We had received quotes from two other companies but we felt

understood what 'look' we were going for. He was also the lowest of the three so that helped too.
We settled on an install date &

From the first phone call to the follow up call to make sure I was satisfied, Illuminations exceeded my expectations. I was a bit worried because of the low price that I would not receive quality components, however they were the same high quality, and very bright, lights I was hoping to get. We are getting ready to do our back yard and they will be getting my business again.
