are knowledgable and creative. I told them I wanted low-maintenance, hearty plants that require little care." They made suggestions and designed the layout. I plan on having them return each spring/fall to maintain and add seasonal plants.

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.

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.

After talking with two other contractors to do our brick patio work, we decided to go with

due to their skill level and workmanship they have done with other customers.
Flora Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
was very knowledgeable in patio design and he came up with a good concept which is NOT a mundane looking design and not a common design we see it every day and it was very unique design that we all liked it the first time. The cost was slightly higher than the other two contractors, but over all we are happy with the quality and the look of our brick patio with fire pit. We also added the lighting package on the sitting wall around the patio which looks so nice at night time.

who did all the digging and paving of the bricks did an excellent job and they were very meticulous in every details and i was very impressed with their work ethics and quality of work. At the end of work every day, they cleaned the area so well, blowing all the dust/dirt away from the house and I appreciated their work very much. The last day of the job, they took care of my lawn which was kind of kind of messed up bobcat traffic and raining during the work days. They seeded my lawn and now I have my lawn back and the whole back yard looked very nice and I get lot of complements from my neighbors and friends.

I was interested in adding a little life to my backyard by getting a small paved walkway (approx. 80 square feet). I contacted several pavers in the Valley before ultimately choosing

Stonewall was a great builder and the wall looks really nice. It is a large retaining wall holding the front yard up above the driveway. He worked well with me on the drainage issues and hiding a sump pump pipe next to the wall. The wall looks 10x better than the old cement block wall. And the price was under 7k when other contractors were asking for 20-30k for the same wall. I feel like I got a great wall at a great price!

Initially they came out and did the job well. They said they would be out every other year to put something on it to keep it looking nice. They have yet to come out even though we've filled out the paperwork. They never call us and when we bring it to their attention they say that they will call and that never happens.

He would make appointments and not show. He kept pushing back the start date. We didn't see Nick until the last day and within a couple months grass was growing in between the pavers. We emailed Nick about this, he took several weeks to get back with us via email. His email reply said he would stop by the next week and never did. When I emailed him again, he replied back asking if pavers needed to be cut or expanded, and asked us to send him measurements which I sent. Bottom line, he never showed up to look at the problem which is frustrating he is the expert in this situation. I even sent him pictures of the problem. In his October email, 4 months after work was completed, he emailed back about trying to get a small amount of pavers and he indicated RoundUp would be the best way to

the grass. This situation has never gone anywhere and he has never tried to resolve this issue and this work is supposed to come with a 1-year warranty.

First of all,

is awesome. Very personable and knows his product well. I gave all "A's" except in the area of punctuality. The job didn't start on time and there were some delays. Our old concrete got torn up and we were stuck with no walkway and having to

was in touch with me working things out. Very professional. The pavers look great. The drain works magnificently. My only advice to anyone thinking about getting masonry work done, try to plan it around a part of the year when there's mostly good weather. Rain definitely causes delays. I'd go with this company again!

seemed very professional and well knowledge about his profession. He also has a great web site and we were excited to have him do our work. The downspout work seems to be fine. However we had issues with the sidewalk and stair installation. His quote was to install four steps, but he only installed three leading up to the porch. Instead he built up underneath each step with 2 inches of mortar. They chiseled sixteen flagstones in an attempt to remove high points from the stones, which gave the walk and unsightly appearance. I've never seen flagstone scored that way. I contacted other masons and was told this is not how it should have been done. I called
Flora Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
and told him we were unhappy with the job. He came right out, and quickly looked at the job and said that is how flagstone is. I told him that I have seen a lot of flagstone work and have never seen flagstone chiseled like that. He said he will fix it but it is going to cost an additional $480 to do so. I asked him if the install was the best he could have done.
Flora Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
said, "Now your insulting my work." I said to him, "If this is your best work, then I can't fault you for it." He said to me that he will fix the walk. I asked him if we had to pay the additional money?
Flora Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
said after I'm done, if you want to help me out, then give me what you feel is right. After the work was done, I noticed that one of the stones had green paint on it. I didn't say anything about it because I felt after the second time he came back, I got his best. We did pay him the original price quoted, but did not give him any additional money. Overall job rating is based on below average work. Had he done the work without the score
Flora Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
then his overall performance would have been a C. Quality of work rating is based on after a second attempt to correct the walk, I still have green paint on one of the stones and two inches of mortar under each step. Punctuality rating is based on he said that he will start the job on a given date but didn't; without any calling for several days.

It was wonderful to see how they transformed my property. The team worked with me; they had me over to their

and I was able to talk about the size, shape, and color of each boulder they were going to deliver to my property. Additionally, they had great ideas on placing these "big rocks" to maximize their impact and create a natural looking hardscape that my wife and I just love. Communication and scheduling was a breeze. I look forward to having them help me again and I am referring them to people already. Great experience!
