"Let me begin my saying that my interaction with and has been the most pleasurable experience I've ever had with" any contractor by far. I'm so happy with my decision to have and his crew transform my , dirt filled backyard into an amazing outdoor place to be; I can't say enough good things. 's passion and enthusiasm for his scope of work is contagious and is shared amongst his hard-working and respectful crew. Of all the landscaping companies I contacted, was the only one who brought forth lots of ideas and suggestions for the project and explained rationale for why he uses such products or materials to ensure things are done right the first time. He was also very willing to revisit the site when I wanted to add to the scope of the project. Throughout the process, was very patient to all my questions, readily shared his knowledge, and was easy to communicate and interact with and really tries to understand his customers. He showed up on time for each and every meeting from the initial consultation to the finished walk-through. He was even very accommodating in scheduling the backyard renovation to work out with my busier than normal work schedule which I greatly appreciated and found valuable. I'm absolutely thrilled with the end result, quality of workmanship, professionalism, and attention to detail. was on site the entire time with his crew except when getting materials or lunch for his guys. They did many extras and even improved the drainage which I wasn't expecting. I can't believe how hard they worked and how much they accomplished in one day. I felt they treated my property as their own and I couldn't find one thing to clean up after the job was done. They even washed down the street and smoothed out rock in my front yard so that you'd never a skid loader ever touched it. It was a pleasure to work with and his crew. They were enjoyable to be around and I welcomed their good attitudes and a few laughs. The end result was better than I was expecting or able to envision. It was worth saving up for a long time in order to have them completely transform the space and I appreciate the backyard now so much. I am so pleased with their efforts and absolutely love my outstanding new backyard. I highly recommend to anyone and would happily be a reference to any future customers considering their services. I look forward to using them again for any future needs. To , Christian, and the rest of the crew: please accept my biggest THANK YOU!!!

"I have lived at this community for over 15 years. Since that time, the Association/ has had the opportunity to contract with various landscaping" companies to maintain the weekly upkeep of the landscaping. In my opinion, and MANY other homeowners share this, . Landscaping Company has been the absolute WORST landscaping company we have dealt with. I would NOT recommend, nor even consider hiring this company for several reasons, such as their failure to complete each assigned weekly task to its fullest, failure to pick up sticks, limbs, branches, leaves, and numerous other deficiencies. The homeowners refer these landscapers as "blow and go" as more than 50% of the time they fail to actually pick up the fallen leaves from the trees. Instead, the landscapers blow them all around the area into different locations, but fail to remove the leaves from the property. . landscapers have blatantly violated the provisions of County ordinances and states by intentionally blowing and discarding landscaping debris into the County Wastewater Storm Drains which is a violation, as the debris clog up the County Wastewater Storm Drains, and any debris that manage to flow through the drainage system end up downstream in a stream, creek, or river, which again, is a violation not only in County, but violates federal statutes regarding pretection of the waterways. Employee(s) are rude and non-complaint, and complaints to . supervisors are essentially in vain. Do NOT hire!

How to find the right landscaper

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

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.

Dear Angie: Should contractors itemize their bills? Is that the norm, or is flat rate becoming the norm? -- Roger E., Parker, Colo.

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.

Contractor returned my first call, promised to come and look at the job, and provide a quote but then never showed up or called back. He did call back once so I gave him a C instead of an F.

They took a lot of breaks. It was a hot day, but they seemed to be leaning on their truck every time we glanced out the window.
The company sent 2 very young men who really didn't seem to want to exert themselves. They left some tall weeds along our back fence.
They arrived on time. They left without speaking with either of ...More us.
We were disappointed.

and crew started the job 3 days after I accepted his bid. They were punctual, polite, and knowledgeable. They did an amazing amount of work in less than 4 days. had great recommendations for plants for both the sunny and shady sides of our yard--brought samples for me to choose from and also picked out ...More some specific ones I wanted from a list I gave him. Yes, people, the 1- plants are small--but guess what--it's less than a month later and they are already noticeably larger, healthy and blooming! That's what proper irrigation and sunshine will do. Thank you, , it was a pleasure doing business with you.

It went great and we were very happy with the results. They were very professional and did their best to work around our schedule and needs. We were so happy with the team that we've also hired them for weekly maintenance and so far have been having a great experience.
