"What a nightmare. After several emails I was finally able to to get someone to give me an estimate for the job. During the walk there were no notes taken, just a lot of "got" it", which is always concerning. When the workers arrived there was confusion on what the job entailed, they tried to install the wrong kind of lights (again, was very clear during the estimate walk of what was needed), then the wrong color of lights (again, this was just replacing existing fixtures), and then they left the job without completing the work. I ended up having to just cancel the job as this company is hte most unprofessional business I have ever encountered. Taking much longer to complete the work than estimated and then just abandoning a job for no reason. The best part? After providing such horrendous service and requiring me to hire another contractor to finish their work, they immediately start start hassling me about payment. Incredible. Strongly recommend to not use this company.

"We were introduced to
last month through an Angie's List Big Deal and he did such a great job, we made an appointment to have more work done.
" replaced and installed two old exterior lights, and removed a screw-in light sensor that had oxidized and was stuck to the contact. He gave us tips about the kind of fixtures to purchase and we're thrilled with our new
dusk-to-dawn lights. He also caulked around them to protect the fixtures from water damage and explained how the installer of one of the old fixtures had failed to ground it.
loves what he does and it shows. He called the day before to confirm the appointment and on the day of to let us know he was on the way...and showed up exactly on time. He loves to teach as it relates to the job at hand and if you're a willing to be a student, you'll learn quite a lot. A pro's pro...you won't find better!

showed up right on time, very courteous / sweet demeanor. Was in and was out. Got back to me as promised with information on how to replace glass on storm door." Would definitely call again if ever in need.

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.

Everything has been going well, and we'd definitely recommend the company's services. we've enjoyed working with the individuals who helped with the initial project as well as the ongoing maintenance, the prices are reasonable, and they've been responsive to an issue with the bubbler that they installed.

They did a great job. We asked for low maintenance and continual blooming through the season. Initally it was hard to get in touch with them but after we did get the ball rolling, it was easier.

Landscape lights and replaced existing wiring and timer box for my front yard landscaping. The installers were very nice and the lighting looks fantastic. Only drawback was the price- which I think was very high considering it took less than 2 hours to do the whole job (estimated it could take 5 hours depending on how the wiring would fit around my walkways, etc. Think the price should be quoted at worse case, but then given an adjustment when job takes significantly less time like in my situation.

He went to the store to buy a gate and took his wife with him. He bought things for his wife that were not part of my service, and then tried to give me the receipt. He left the old gate laying against the house. He only put some of the nails in the fence. He never got to the landscaping lighting that I wanted. He didn't take the old hardware of the posts and now the gate will not close. I would never hire him again.

Bought the "$39 for $169 of electrical services" on Angie's list. It seemed they didn't answer the phone although they suggested calling them. I left a message and they did call back quickly.
I asked them to fix a fluorescent lighting fixture in one of the closets because the switch seemed to be broken inside. The technician couldn't make it at the originally scheduled day and had to move to the back up day.
Hayden Landscape Lighting Provider Name Locked
did show up on time on the back up day, polite and informative. He said the light fixture could not be fixed and the whole fixture should be replaced, and gave me a price quote of $59 extra for material cost. So the total money out of pocket would be $98. I thought it was a little expensive for a small size fluorescent lighting fixture but didn't want to waste more time trying to reschedule, so went with the price. But it turned out what he got for me was only the simplest, and cheapest, ceiling light fixture (less than $10 in Home Depot). The actual labor time was only 10 minutes. The closet ceiling was left with a small ceiling light with all the

from the old fluorescent fixture, so I definitely need to find a replacement that matches the old fixture, or redo the ceiling. Compared to only 10 minutes of actual labor time and only $10 worth of cheap material, the price does look very expensive. I really don't think it adds up to the value as suggested.
It's the first time I used Angie's list. This type of service deal looked more like a catch, not a deal. Lesson learned.
