"From the beginning,
was responsive and conscientious about getting back to us, envisioning a fresh start for our landscape. She had a difficult" job which involved redesigning a botched job from a previous well known landscaping company and calming our frustration over the amount of money we had wasted. She used many of the existing plants in order to save us money which we really appreciated.
came out to the house numerous times, taking pictures and making drawings, and in the end ordered a number of new plants, but also regrouped and moved many of the existing plants, forming beautiful new arrangements with many of the perennials.
really has a flair not only for knowing what plants look good on their own and will do well in this area, but also how to design and envision a plan that has impact. While we were delayed due to a rainy summer,
stayed in touch and consulted frequently, suggesting and checking options. When her crew came out to implement the landscaping, they were courteous and hard working, with
checking in frequently by coming out to the job site several times a day and staying to ensure the work was conscientiously carried out.
was eager to share her knowledge and care for plants, making sure to conclude the job she did for us assured that we knew how to take care of the plants. Sometimes in this process, my husband and I were not there at the same time due to our schedules.
would take the time to inform each of us, and answer all our questions which took up quite a bit of her time. In the end, when one buys something, you always hope that you are in fact left with the product you purchased. With

"A disaster. Some of the plants that arrived and were planted were the wrong plants; the power washing equipment broke and so job took a week longer to complete," many of the plants didn't survive and had to be replaced, and when the invoice arrived, it was more than twice what the estimate was. The service provider was rude and accusatory, and generally unprofessional.

How to find the right landscaper

There are several things to look for when hiring someone to work in your landscape.

Landscaping

Landscaping your property adds beauty, value and curb appeal. Start with a clear plan of what you hope to achieve, then decide if want to do it yourself or hire a professional.

Picking plants and shrubs for your lawn's landscape isn't as easy as choosing what looks best or has the most colorful blooms.

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.

They were on-time and got started right away.

was very easy to work with and understood what we needed to have done and made it happen quickly. They did a ton of work and the yard looks great now! We plan to use them again. We had used another landscaper before who came with an attitude and wanted to tell us what we wanted rather than listen.

did a great job. He was very knowledgeable about what we needed and what our options were. The price was lower than a couple other estimates i got. He gave us a realistic timeline and called to confirm a few days before the work was to be done. He also emailed specific watering instructions, which i have followed, and the grass looks great 3 weeks later.

This was work that was ordered as a deal on Angie's List. The worst problem both
Bridgton Landscaping Companies Provider Name Locked
and I had was finding a day that was dry enough to do the work. We had to wait a while, and rescheduled once, but it was well worth the wait.
Bridgton Landscaping Companies Provider Name Locked
brought the weed
Bridgton Landscaping Companies Provider Name Locked
and fasteners with him. I had spoken with him on the phone and arranged this during one of our discussions while we tried to find a dry day. I paid him for the cost of the supplies; he made sure that I saw the receipts. I had the mulch delivered the day before the work was to be done; the mulch company can guarantee a date, but not the time. So
Bridgton Landscaping Companies Provider Name Locked
and crew arrived to find a big pile of mulch in the street pretty close to the patch where the work was to be done. It turned out to be a much more involved project than I thought it would be. Previous landscapers many years ago had just laid the weed

, shoveled on the mulch and left.
Bridgton Landscaping Companies Provider Name Locked
crew weed whacked the area, dug out roots and generally did an awesome job of preparing the site. They laid the weed
Bridgton Landscaping Companies Provider Name Locked
and pinned it in place with fasteners. Then they shoveled on the mulch and smoothed it by hand so that it was evenly distributed and looks quite nice. They left a tree stump and a couple of bush stumps above the mulch so I can get some chemicals to dissolve them. Then those areas can be covered with mulch. They also left out a small patch of lilies that had volunteered near the
Bridgton Landscaping Companies Provider Name Locked
of the area. The large weedy patch went from messy-weedy to looking quite sharp! The guys were done on time, but they had to wait a bit for
Bridgton Landscaping Companies Provider Name Locked
to come pick them up. There was also a lot of mulch left over, so I asked them if they would put some of it around the 3 hardwood trees in my front yard. They did, and those look quite nice as well. I still had quite a bit of mulch left over. When
Bridgton Landscaping Companies Provider Name Locked
came to pick up his crew, we discussed his taking the mulch as payment for the overtime work his crew did. That saved me from having to find a place put the mulch as well as the work of shoveling it into a wheelbarrow.

crew came back the next day to remove the mulch as promised. I found

Installed one zone that was already covered by an existing zone. I caught that to late to do anything about it. He checked entire existing system beforehand so there is no excuse for that error on his part. System worked approximately two weeks when one zone stopped working.

I asked

to do a plan for a small narrow lot with the main idea being little maintenance. What we got was a plan with little thought for the sun, the plant selection and the placement of the plants. I would have done better with a sketch, pictures of the lot and just going to any nursery. When I addressed it with
