"We have three fountains on our property that we have attempted to maintain ourselves with the help of the gardener. They were installed about 2 years ago and two of them were no longer" working. They still had water in them and the pumps were still functioning but for some reason the appearance and sound of running water were entirely absent. I called
at 9:30AM and he was here by 11:30AM the same day. He was personable, professional and the fountains are working better than they have ever worked before! I am in complete shock. The water is crystal clear and chemical free (as I requested). I'm sure the birds will be as thrilled as I am! The next time I have fountain issues, I will definitely be giving
a call. I don't know why I waited so long.

"I spoke with
a couple of years ago about redoing my aging pond. He came out and gave me an estimate. I wasn't quite ready at that time and when I was," my landscaper of many years told me that he does ponds. Long story short, I went with my landscaper and it was a mistake. While the pond itself was acceptable, I think that
would have gotten it done better and probably for less than what I paid. Certainly it would have been done timely as Ponds are
's primary business. Instead it took almost 11 months to complete. My landscaper does not maintain ponds and so I contacted
to see if he would be able to do it. He agreed to come out and look which he did. Unfortunately, after reviewing the location, he decided that he didn't have enough core business in the area to warrant including my house on his route. In any event, I thank
for coming out and hope that he gets a sufficient base in my area to warrant future consideration.

"
is the nicest guy and took time out of his busy summer schedule and came to our home several times along with one of his employees,
who" tirelessly worked in the oppressive heat and humidity for what seemed like an entire day trying to assess the waterfall's malfunction.
and
took great care in trying different things to see where the problem was.
always let me know if and when he or
would be coming to my home even though they had access to the waterfall and water system without anyone being at home. They were responsive, knowledgable, friendly and very honest about what was going on and what they were doing. I would not hesitate to use
again and recommend them to anyone that might have a water feature that needs help.
is great and
was also the nicest guy as well. Definitely a quality company!

The sound and movement of water is transforming, especially in the garden. Angie's List contractors discuss home water features that can liven up your yard, such as fountains, ponds and waterfalls.

Jo Ellen Myers Sharp, the Hoosier Gardener, gives advice on how to winterize water features in the yard. Preparing features such as water gardens, ponds, waterfalls for winter helps avoid damage from freezing and thawing water.

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.

Loxahatchee Fountain Installers Provider Name Locked
and his wife originally came out to my house on 8/23/2014 because my fountain stopped pumping water. They originally thought it was just going to be a flush to remove debri in the pipes and quoted me $150 for the job.
After they flushed the pipes they realized that wasn't the problem. He attempted to diagnose the problem and in that attempt took apart my pump housing/motor. He came to the conclusion that my motor wasn't working correctly anymore. He took my motor information down and told me the following week he would look into a replacement. I also was going to have him replace the automatic water leveler in my fountain and backyard pond at the same time. We decided on $50 for the job and that he would return and finish things the following week.
After he left I decided to try one last thing and replaced the O-ring on my pump lid. Once I replaced the O-ring my pump worked fine again. Apparently my old pump O-ring got old and wasn't creating an airtight seal anymore. However when I turned my pump back on there was a leak coming out the back of the pump where
Loxahatchee Fountain Installers Provider Name Locked
separated the motor from the housing.
I called and told
Loxahatchee Fountain Installers Provider Name Locked
that the pump was working so he didn't have to look for a motor but that when he took apart the motor and housing something didn't seal correctly and now there was a water leak coming out the back of my pump.
Loxahatchee Fountain Installers Provider Name Locked
told me he would come out and fix the problem and replace my water levelers the following friday 8/29/2014.
On 8/29/14
Loxahatchee Fountain Installers Provider Name Locked
said he was going to come over but wanted to charge $140.00 to change out my water levelers (they are the $15 dollar toilet levelers you get at home depot). When I questioned him he said he needed to pay for buying the levelers, installing them, gas, and child care while he did it. I told him just to come fix the leak he made when he opened the motor up last week and that should be fine as I wasn't really worried about fixing the leveler but have been waiting to turn my fountain back on. This is when things got ugly -
Loxahatchee Fountain Installers Provider Name Locked
's wife (he doesn't speak English) told me that it was a waste of time to drive out there and they didn't cause the leak in the pump. She started babbling about the fact that I didn't have a pump warranty with them so it wasn't their problem. They were not driving out to my house (an hour away) because it was a waste of their time considering they weren't going to get any money for it.
In other words they opened up my pump and put it back together when they were trying to diagnose my problem. I fixed the problem myself but had to deal with a leak that
Loxahatchee Fountain Installers Provider Name Locked
made and then decided he didn't want to fix. I consider this horrible customer care and not a way to run his small business. Steer clear from them - I'm completely disappointed in what they did. If you open a motor and put it back poorly then come out and tighten the screws you didn't tighten down well. My pool man immediately came out and told me that the housing gasket wasn't tightened well and it was an easy fix. Just horrendous business practices - I told him did they really want to act like this to me because they rely so heavily on Angie's List -
Loxahatchee Fountain Installers Provider Name Locked
and his wife could care less and didn't want to get in their car to drive from Cave Creek to
Loxahatchee Fountain Installers Provider Name Locked
to solve what they were responsible for. I also think they were trying to gauge me financially - I have to pay for their gas and child care?? Just come out and deal with your mistakes so you can grow your small business, keep your clients happy, and let your clients spread the word about you. Well the words I spread about them are steer clear and don't let them touch your fountain!

It went very well.
Loxahatchee Fountain Installers Provider Name Locked
is very professional. I have a small pond in my backyard. It has a very large rock (~500 lbs) in it which has pumps attached to it to send water through the rock and create several little waterfalls. The rock is positioned such that part of it is in the water and part is sitting on the
Loxahatchee Fountain Installers Provider Name Locked
of the pond (out of the water).
Loxahatchee Fountain Installers Provider Name Locked
determined that during the initial installation (2001) of the pond (which he did not do), the rubber liner had been cut too short around the
Loxahatchee Fountain Installers Provider Name Locked
of the pond, therefore making it easy for water to escape out of the pond into the yard (thus lowering the level of the water). He determined that over the years the water had seeped out at the rock's heaviest point on the
Loxahatchee Fountain Installers Provider Name Locked
of the pond. The soil was constantly wet and the rock sank into the wet soil a good six inches. We drained the pond and removed some of the wet soil and left the soil to dry for almost 2 weeks (I covered it to keep the rain from getting it wet). When
Loxahatchee Fountain Installers Provider Name Locked
returned, he raised the rock at the pond's
Loxahatchee Fountain Installers Provider Name Locked
and then had to stabilize the rock in it's new position. He was attempting to get the rubber liner in such a position that it would no longer let water out of the pond (difficult since it was so short and he couldn't really move the 500 lb rock - he didn't want to tear the liner & there's no way to get machinery into my backyard). He added some sand to the soil to help keep it drier even if it did get wet and to help position the liner such that it wouldn't let water out. All of this was great. He didn't do the finishing work because we wanted to make sure that it would fill to the appropriate level and not leak out at that low point. Everything worked very well. I did have him come back to deal with some aesthetic issues that happened as a result of the rock sinking over the years and us having messed with the rock's position. He took care of that very quickly.
Loxahatchee Fountain Installers Provider Name Locked
didn't do the finishing work (making it look pretty) because I wanted to do that. Since his second trip here, there has been no leaking water at all and the pond has maintained it's appropriate level. I am very happy and would use

was on time and extremely personable. He was easy to work with and he explained all of the problems we had, how to fix them and how much each cost, giving us the opportunity to only address the issues we chose. The fountains look great. Although both were fixed, one of them needed an electrician's visit to get fully going again.
