"Bill Wolfs and his crew were terrific. Bill listened to what I wanted and outdid himself in his design and knowledge.

"Came out on 01/12/2015 for an estimate to install a water feature and renovate (replaster and retile) existing swimming pool. Said an estimate normally is $750" -- I got 7 or 8 waterfall and pool estimates and all the others were free -- but would cut the price in half to only $375. He said it would include detailed plans and a 3-D CG video. I paid him $200 via a check and he said the remaining $175 was due upon completion. When I had not heard back from him by about
. 26th I called and said I would be out of town the following week and would like the estimate by that Friday the 30th. The salesman called me back at the end of the week and said he could come out on Friday the 6th, the Friday I had told him on the voice mail I left for him that I would be out of town. So he came back on Thursday Feb 12th but still did not have the estimate, although he did provide me with a to-scale plan and some CG pictures taken from the measurements his assistant had taken at the house. But I noticed that the pictures showed the waterfall going into the pool even though I had specifically told him the waterfall was to be a "pondless" one that stopped at the retaining wall for the pool and did not go into it as it was a saltwater pool. (He said he had not noticed the error). He said he would be back no later than Thursday the 19th with the completed estimate but here it is Feb. 24th and I still do not have the estimate, nor have I heard from him since the 12th. So it has been over 6 weeks and they still have not provided the estimate I paid $200 for.

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.

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.

We were absolutely delighted with
Lockport Landscapers Provider Name Locked

Cleanup went fine. Spent an hour discussing flowers/colors at his place of business. His truck and crew came to my house to plant annuals and they were the wrong colors. I had an appointment in the morning and they called and said they would be delayed. They finished that job and had to go back to the nursery to pick up my order. Apparently they had a wrong mumber for me and they arrived that afternoon around 3. I knew there was too much to finish before 5.00. I didn't want the flowers as they were the wrong colors. Was told that they would call when they got back to the landscape office. Never heard from them again. Called about 4 days later and canceled the order. Pity, I figured it was going to be a 5K order.
Wouldn't recommend them to anyone.

We hired
Lockport Landscapers Provider Name Locked
to remodel our pool. The pool was built back in the 70's and was all original. The plaster was flaking off, tiles were missing and brick on the raised bond beam at the back of the pool had disintegrated. Our goal in the remodel was to replace the plaster, tile, raised bond beam, plumbing and filter. Many companies that we spoke with said that in order to replace the plumbing we would have to demo all of the decks and pour new concrete, which can be very expensive, and was out of our budget.
Lockport Landscapers Provider Name Locked
, the owner of
Lockport Landscapers Provider Name Locked
, was the first person to propose running the plumbing along the outside of the pool "shell" and then they would pour new concrete coping around the pool. This strategy allowed us to do everything on our list and stay within budget. In addition to his recommendations,
Lockport Landscapers Provider Name Locked
was really professional and it seemed like he knew what he was talking about.
The actual process took about 3 weeks from start to finish.
Lockport Landscapers Provider Name Locked
's project manager,
Lockport Landscapers Provider Name Locked
, stopped by the house to check the progress at least once a day, and communicated how things were going and what would happen next.
Lockport Landscapers Provider Name Locked
and
Lockport Landscapers Provider Name Locked
both paid close attention to the aesthetics of the design, for instance due to the construction, one of the cracks in our existing deck became quite a bit deeper.
Lockport Landscapers Provider Name Locked
proposed building out the step nearby to get rid of the crack but also line up the step with the new coping. I'm the type of person that obsesses over small details, so I appreciated that
Lockport Landscapers Provider Name Locked
noticed this problem and suggested a reasonable solution. I think some companies would just carry on as originally planned and not worry about the ugly crack.
The
Lockport Landscapers Provider Name Locked
crew set the bar pretty high for future contractors that work on our property. I cannot say enough good things about them and our pool looks great. I can't wait for the weather to warm up so we can finally swim in our "new" pool.
