"The pool installation destroyed the entire back yard sprinkler system. They designed a new layout taking into account modified needs of the property, moved and" relocated existing stations, and installed new stations to provide optimal coverage. The other parts of the yard had issues with layout and selection of sprinkler heads, so there were changes in sprinkler locations and sprinkler selections made to better serve the yard. They were expedient, efficient and thorough. the work was high quality and has lasted years without trouble. All work was done by hand trenching. We have since used this service two additional times in subsequent years (2013 and 2014). The job in 2013 was a conversion on another property from a manual system to automatic system. Automatic valves were installed, and plumbing rerouted. A new station was added to serve an area previously unserved. Installed a new back flow valve to handle the volume as the old one was undersized. Several stations were reconfigured to improve irrigation. The job in 2014 was to relocated a control from an interior wall to the exterior. All in all, we have been delighted by the service we had received, and recommend him to our associates and friends.
is a consummate professional does really good work.

"Waste of my time! Came to my
Vedra home and said my landscaping was "awful" and why would I want to lite it up. After insulting" my new home, he got in his car and left without even trying to help me with a proposal! He was the rudest contractor I have ever encountered. I live in a beautiful gated community and he also insulted several of my neighbors' yards.

On this episode of Chat with the Experts, we talk with Ralph Redmond of Indiana Outdoor Lighting about how to spruce up your landscape with lighting.

Angie's Answers

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 -


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. 




Landscape Lighting reviews in Hillsborough


I was very pleased with
Hillsborough Landscape Lighting Companies Provider Name Locked
. Communication was swift and efficient. And was a lot through text. Which I love because I'm not able to speak on the phone during the work day. I just bought a new house that had existing landscape and deck lighting but everything was out. I purchased the big deal and they replaced all of my bulbs and fixed all my broken connections. They were even able to do everything while I was away from home so I didn't have to miss any work. Thank you. I would definitely recommend

and his wife were wonderful! They returned my call on Labor Day to schedule the appointment to come out and do a demo. We loved their ideas for our yard and decided to have them do our deck lighting at the same time.

Working with
Hillsborough Landscape Lighting Companies Provider Name Locked
was an excellent experience.
Hillsborough Landscape Lighting Companies Provider Name Locked
first came out to our house and talked to us about what we had in mind and determined the purpose of the lighting. Then he developed a plan. As one of the other reviewers noted,
Hillsborough Landscape Lighting Companies Provider Name Locked
has a landscape architecture background enabling him to envision the lighting in the total landscape. The project is very nicely done. The next phase was presenting the plan to us. While the plan as presented was a bit more extensive than we wanted, we were pleased that the wiring was installed in such a way that we can have
Hillsborough Landscape Lighting Companies Provider Name Locked
add to it in the future. We concentrated most of the lights in this phase in the front of the house, but also had a wire run around the back yard with 3 lights there.
We are very pleased with the over all process, with the lighting plan that
Hillsborough Landscape Lighting Companies Provider Name Locked
developed, with the quality of the fixtures, and with the amount of light provided. This new lighting makes our house look so much prettier.
This system replaces an old professionally installed system that had failed several times that we were trying to work with on a DIY basis. we've basically spent the whole summer working with this - time and money- to no avail. Now we have a new system that looks great and functions properly.

is not the most inexpensive option, but it is tough to imagine a better one. And despite the higher price point, you will still feel like you are getting value.

are efficient and professional. They provide a full "at dusk" demonstration of the lighting plan based on the design they architect with you. Their lighting scheme for your home is smart, beautiful, even revelatory, and the lighting equipment they install is gorgeous and of very high quality. Outstanding on all accounts. We were supremely satisfied and would recommend

to anyone interested.

I was extremely pleased with the work.
Hillsborough Landscape Lighting Companies Provider Name Locked
responded promptly when I called, came over in just a few days to do the estimating, and scheduled the work right away. The installation got postponed by rain for a couple of days but then they got right to it. The house looks great! I've had the lights for several weeks now and everything is working perfectly. The price seemed a little high, but I think that's what is needed to get good quality product.
- Jennifer L.

Very impressive results on several high end installations in my neighborhood. The owner/designer stopped by my house and offered to do a night time demo of what they could do. Very impressive understanding of lighting design and the quality of the lights being used. Unfortunately to install was going to be $600/light fixture + an electrician. Ended up doing some re-landscaping of the yard and a DIY install of lighting. We already had a left over spool of landscape wiring from another house, spent $250 at home depot and 30 minutes installing it. A little less professional on the end wiring as the transformer is just plugged into a covered outdoor outlet. HOWEVER, I got 90%of the results for 10% of the cost. This made hiring

Outdoor Lighting unjustifiably expensive for me.
