"If you are considering hiring
.....don't DO IT! I hired him to do a job that was supposed to last one day, two at most.....he did" NOT complete in two days, came back another two days then didn't show back up for a few weeks!!! He showed up late EVERY DAY then left early, had a
of his stop by for coffee, took long lunch breaks. Not to mention the work that he did was not acceptable - he was supposed to dig up an area for a patio and walkways with proper pitch and grading, properly regrade the backyard and dig for landscaping....needless to say NONE of that was done properly and I have a patio that gets a HUGE water issue with a major puddle on the patio when it rains. I addressed the issue and he is NOT taking any of the responsibility and will not fix it nor will he return a portion of my money. (I paid him in full before it rained and knew that there was a grading issue.) Now I have to hire another person who actually knows how to properly grade a backyard so there is not a water issue on my patio - which will cost me more money. This guy is completely sarcastic, rude and either doesn't care about doing a job properly or he doesn't know how to do his job properly....either way, he could care less and does not stand behind his work at all. He doesn't even bring his own water to a job site and expects the homeowner to supply him with something to drink when he's thirsty. He is also very nosey and snooped in my garage and showed up at my house when I wasn't there without notice or permission. Now I know why he doesn't advertise his last name "
" and only addresses himself as "
" He gets two thumbs down and an "F" in my book!

"All he did was spray weeds, he did not remove them and he missed a lot of them. He left the stump of the tree, and left an entire branch in the back. He didn't" trim down any bushes, and now we get to look at an ugly stump, the same weeds...they're just dead weeds now. I called to ask him to come back out and was greeted with hostility. He said he would "check his schedule" and call me back. He didn't. I called again and spoke to
. She was incredibly rude and said that
did do the work and that they have before and after pictures, which is absolutely ridiculous. The yard is still a mess and I'm so upset that we paid these people $140 for nothing. DO NOT HIRE THEM!

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.

Textured pavers are not smooth, but have a textured look that can prevent people from slipping while walking across them, says Wood. (Photo courtesy of Angie's List member George L. of San Francisco)

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.

My husband called one morning to tell me he bought a bunch of boulders and to figure out where I want them placed. I was annoyed and alarmed, as I generally like to research and plan before large purchases. When
Lockport Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
delivered the boulders he also gave us an estimate for cleaning up and re-landscaping our pool area, which had been neglected for years and was overgrown with weeds. While it concerned me that he had no Angie's list history, he was upfront about wanting to build his reputation up and also showed us his brother's landscaping business, which he had been a part of until he became independent. His assessment of our yard was reassuring. We have had various quotes for a clean up that we were not happy with - some claimed that having the sheet under gravel will end weeds for good, while others claimed it would be a complete waste.
Lockport Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
explained that while yes, eventually we will get weeds over the sheet, it would greatly reduce and slow the weeds enough to make them manageable in other ways. Other companies would have buried or only cleaned around the large river rocks that once formed a dry riverbed (but were beginning to sink into the soil) but
Lockport Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
said his guys would remove, clean up, and re-locate those rocks into the new landscape, and he did a spectacular job. The boulders looked fantastic - They all look like they've been there all along. My husband's best impulse-buy ever!

This was the second hot tub we purchased from
Lockport Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
as we loved the Pinnacle spa. The sales process was friendly (
Lockport Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
) and we felt like we got a great deal. However, the delivery and after-sale service was a little frustrating. Like the first time around, the company drops off the tub and pretty much is done. They didn't explain the functionality of the tub, what to expect, or what chemicals to add, etc. Fortunately the electrician recommended by
Lockport Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
had knowledge of some of this information, however, we had significant water issues for two months.
When calling the office, they told us to drain the tub and add some new chemicals or call the help line for further issues (FYI - called the helpline, left a message, and never received a response). We were told we would be charged a fee to come out (granted this is within 30 days of dropping off the tub) since it wasn't considered a warranty issue. After spending over $100 on chemicals and researching the issue on Google, we determined our water had too much metal in it. The owner at a different company on Concord Mills Blvd. was extremely helpful, taking the time to test our water (for free), recommend the right chemicals, and validate some of the things we found on Google. Now, after 4 months of having the hot tub, we still love the Pinnacle spa and the water is balanced (had to buy a permanent filter addition to remove water hardness and metals). However, if you are looking for service after the sale and delivery, I wouldn't recommend this place unless you can handle things on your own after investing in a significant addition to your home.

They were great. They arrived on time, worked very h****** a hot, humid day, and nearly completed the work in one day. What little remained to be done was taken care of the next morning. They delivered everything they promised, including some last-minute changes we asked for, and were very easy to work with. We have been dealing with several companies on various home repair jobs, and it doesn't always work out so well. But it was a pleasure to work with

They have a supervisor for the project. Without too much details from me, they

Incredible.

and his team were unbelievable in how efficiently and professionally they worked. Once they got going they had the old slab out, laid a new foundation, built the wall and had most of the stones cut and laid by the end of the first day. Last steps were finishing touches, electrical and getting a dry day out to pour in the polymer sand.
Can't say enough about how good the quality and craftsmanship are. Beyond satisfied and am so glad we went with them over additional quotes we received.

After reviewing their ratings, we requested a bid from
Lockport Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
. Other reviewers have noted their are a bit more expensive. Our experience was consistent. Their quote was about twice the competition. Moreover, we didn't feel that they were providing a superior product for the money.
The salesperson arrived punctually and was knowledgable and professional. The quoted price for the project was $25,000, which was significantly more than the $10,000 - $15,000 we had anticipated based on other work we had done previously from other contractors. They did note that they were running a special and could lower the price to $20,000. We met with two other companies, both of which provided lower bids, and we ultimately selected Pacific Pavingstone (Outdoor Living). Not only did they bid the project at $11,000, but we felt that we were getting a better product from them. Whereas
Lockport Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
devoted much of its pitch to a professional Power Point slide show discussing other projects,
Lockport Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
spent their time evaluating our project and the necessary engineering--type of soil, drainage issues, etc.
Lockport Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
also outsources their work to contractors, whereas Pacific Pavingstone does their own work.
Lockport Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
could not fit us into their schedule for at least a month. Pacific Pavingstone, however, could start in a week. So overall, we felt that Pacific Pavingstone would provide a better product and service at a fraction of the cost. (See our review of
Lockport Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
for details about how the project went.)
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend that anyone talk to
Lockport Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
. They were certainly knowledgeable, professional, and punctual and I believe they would have done a great job. But if the cost of the project matters to you, I would recommend that you ask questions, know what is important for your project, and get other bids to make sure that you are completely comfortable with the value proposition.

The initial consultation was good. We went to the showroom to pick out our pavers and went with mixed color. Everyone had nothing but good things to say about the installers being able to work magic with the mixed color pallets. On installation day, warn your neighbors they bring the equipment in on multiple large trucks, just to give them a heads up. Other than that, we are so very happy with the finished project and would recommend pavers over concrete any day. P.S. the installers were able to make the mixed colors look amazing!!
