"The provider was very easy to schedule. They responded within a day and were able to set up recurring service electronically, which was very much appreciated. Since" then the team has done the job well for a reasonable price. They bill automatically monthly. Everything has gone smoothly and is super easy.

"I couldn't ask for a better outcome!! The new patio looks amazing!!
helped me in the selection and design of the pavers, and explained" how he would do the project. He and his workers were punctual, courteous and cleaned up after themselves. I used Bill in part because he is a certified installer for Techo-Bloc and it was clear by how fast he worked that he knew the product and how to install it correctly. This project was done on a 2 year old townhouse in a new development in the area. This installation included digging out the 8'X10' concrete pad, digging the foundation for the 10'X30' patio, routing drain pipes under the patio, putting in the base, putting in the pavers, he planted several plants for me, put topsoil down around them, re-seeded along the border of the patio, and topped it off with straw. He even trimmed the concrete pad my air conditioner unit was sitting on because it was uneven, and he wanted the pavers to be aligned. His attention to detail is excellent! Bill also came with good equipment to complete the job... dump trucks, bobcat, cutters, stampers, trailer, etc. All well maintained and very clean. This meant to me that if he cares this much about his equipment, he will also care about doing a great job for me. I would highly recommend
for any landscaping and hard scaping project. In fact, I am having him come back in the fall to do some lawn work. HIs estimate was very reasonable and he stuck with it.

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.

Turning your landscaping into a wildlife habitat can be a rewarding undertaking for you and your family.

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.

arrived right on time. They brought several boxes of plants from which to select. Again, he told me about flower color and size. We discussed my irrigation system and I upgraded to a drip irrigation system. There was no pressure whatsoever to add services to my original order. And, he graciously agreed to install the drip irrigation the same day. We agreed upon the plants and then he and

They cleaned up all the plastic bags from the mulch as well as removed the dirt and mulch that drifted onto the sidewalk.

is a really great business person with your best interests in mind. He walked me through the whole process and came in about 50% of the quotes I had been getting for the same or similar work, we then added additional work (mulching) and he was full of suggestions. The work and professionalism is amazing, has a reasonable rate for labor, and he also doesn't charge you an arm and a leg on materials.

We got five quotes for this job.
Manchester Landscaping Companies Provider Name Locked
was timely, professional, honest and a good listener during our first meeting. His quote wasn't the lowest, but he seemed to best understand what we wanted and he guaranteed his quote. Now, we feel like we got the better end of the deal. In this case, you get MORE than you pay for.
He and his team were meticulous. The attention to detail was incredible. Although we thought we knew what we wanted, there were parts of the project (like how to design the stairs that exited the deck so that they wouldn't be too steep or too wide) that we couldn't figure out. Luckily,

It did not go well. Our previous landscape company came out between the time we provided Mr.

with the down payment and he started the job. We called and attempted to cancel. Mr.
Manchester Landscaping Companies Provider Name Locked
came out and suggested that they could do some work that was missed by the other company. We agreed and understood that any excess funds we paid would be refunded. They sent out two guys who worked for about 3-4 hours and left. We never received a refund for the balance. I contacted Mr.
Manchester Landscaping Companies Provider Name Locked
on 5 separate occasions to ask for our refund which was promised to us in a few days. It never came each time. I stopped by the store in
Manchester Landscaping Companies Provider Name Locked

Fast forward to Spring 2015. I called Mr.
Manchester Landscaping Companies Provider Name Locked
and asked for the refund. He said he had no money. I suggested that I would pursue legal action to receive an accounting of the amount used against our credit and obtain a refund. He asked me to wait 2 weeks. After 2 weeks, our refund came.
I do not recommend this provider - beware - he is a crook.

has been fantastic. I have used them for 8+ years at the various houses I have owned. In addition to this backyard overhaul, they provide weekly services to keep our yard looking good. For this project the team had to rip out the grass we had which had drainage issues due to poor soil, and the paver patio. They then had to level the yard and custom cut flagstones to create a new patio and install a synthetic lawn. In addition they installed a different lawn in the dog run.
The supplier of the synthetic lawn was difficult and relatively non-responsive due to high demand and odd scheduling, but
Manchester Landscaping Companies Provider Name Locked
was able to work through the chaos and make it all work out.
Over the years we have looked at other options, but have remained because the service cannot be beat. When there is an issue with a plant, they are very responsive to get it fixed, and they stand by the work that they do.

I contacted Wildwood and spoke with Grant
Manchester Landscaping Companies Provider Name Locked
. Take my advice and ASK for Grant!! He was so wonderful. He came out to my house and I explained exactly what I wanted - all of the horrible shrubs and bushes removed and replaced with a cohesive design that was low maintenance. Grant listened to my wish list and even walked around the block to look at a design idea I liked. He then went back to his office to work up a design. Grant called me about a week later and we met at his office to view the plan. I loved it! It had everything I asked for. After getting another estimate we decided to go with Wildwood. I was really impressed with the level of detail and the continual communication from Grant. He kept me informed as the date of my installation. He kept me informed every step of the way. I absolutely love the look of my landscaping now!! I've even posted pictures on Wildwoods Facebook and I would recommend them without hesitation. Thank you GRANT for helping me love the look of my house again!!!
