"A very professional outfit, from the the salesman to the installers. A nice showroom with lots to see, including a large outdoor area where you can see how things" weather in the sun, or what they look like when wet. The installer crew was absolutely amazing to watch! The speed and accuracy with which they can install things are hard to believe. We had very large, thick, heavy pavers with embedded seashells installed. There were two sizes, 16 inches square, and 12 inches square, in a complicated pattern around a kidney shaped pool, so there were lots of cuts. I was so pleased with the preparation, installation, finishing, and clean-up that I tipped the entire crew!

"
is an upfront honest and straight shutting guy. He doesn't require any money upfront and didn't ask for progress payments until" the work was done. He has a great crew and he takes care of them. The job was left clean every day. All you need to do is have patience because he is in so much demand, he has a back log of work.

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.

I required a concrete patio, an extension to an existing patio. Mr.
Madison Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
graded the land and laid down a very substantial concrete patio which abutted the old patio perfectly. In addition, the new patio was sloped (per my request) to direct
Madison Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
and snow melt away from my home and down the drive. The sloping of the concrete was tricky, but Mr.
Madison Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
accomplished the task. He also ensured that the patio surface was scored to ensure firmer traction. He showed up on time and he and his crew ensured everything was clean and in order every day before they left. We did encounter a delay in pouring of the concrete (through no error on Mr.
Madison Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
part) due to inclement weather. He stayed in touch with me nearly every day during the delay to ensure we were first on his list once the sun came back.
The final product was an excellent piece of work and we are very pleased with Mr.
Madison Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
. We would most definitely consult with him again if/when the need arises. Hia pricing was quite competitive with several other apprasails I receive and the work was excellent.

We used

Took bid from about 6 angies list contractors. Price wise everyone was in a range. There price was not the lowest, but towards the lower end. It was good to take a bunch of bids to get some ideas on how we wanted the project done.
The paver work was awesome, better than expected. The artificial turf work was very good. The salesman/project leader

did a great job with presentation, communication, and coordination.
The only thing that could have been a little better was clean up. Overall I would highly recommend Install it direct and would use them again.

Excellent work, excellent attitude, and great job overall! I was contacted ahead of time about the start date, and the workers arrived as scheduled and on time. They were friendly, professional, and very skilled. They communicated with me throughout the three-day job to make sure everything looked the way I wanted it to. They were perfectionists when it came to placing the boulders, and the wall they built is a work of art. They repaired my lawn where the stones and equipment had made ruts, and swept and washed down the driveway to remove all construction debris. Supervisors showed up occasionally during the work, which was probably unnecessary due to the skill of the workers, but was further evidence of

We were impressed with
Madison Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
's professionalism from the moment we met him. He reviewed the job and described our alternatives which were: patch the steps, install new a tread or repair the whole retaining wall that the stairs were part of. In his explanation of each alternative, he described the problems and advantages of each. His final recommendation, which was the more conservative plan, was exactly what we had in mind.
--We had bought a coupon for his services, which he agreed to use.
--The best part of the initial meeting was his honesty about scheduling. He was working on other jobs that were also caused by storm damage. He explained the reasons it is sometimes difficult to pin down an exact starting date. We liked that his reasons were not excuses. He gave us an example of what might delay the start of our job my using our project: if he were to remove our retaining wall and found the repair was more complicated than we expected, the additional work would delay the start date of his next job.
--We agreed on a ballpark estimate of the start date. He arrived on the date we agreed upon. He kept in contact with us by email.
--As described above, he demolished the steps that needed repair, replaced it with a concrete step that and removed the debris.
--He returned the following day to check the step and do any additional work. The work area was cleaner than when he started.
--He did an excellent job.
--The job cost less than the estimate ($450) and was covered, in full, by the coupon.

I met

at the Home Show at Patriot Place during the winter of 2014. At the show I had also met a few other Landscaping Contractors. While

and crew came onsite when they advised, and were very tidy when cleaning up the job site. I even had neighbors comment on the tidiness of the project.

The finished product came out exactly how
