"Their "snow removal" consists of driving their plow truck down your driveway and sending you a check. Since we have outdoor parking, this just packed" our cars in snow, which we had to shovel. Since I'd apparently have to wait days for them to get around to clearing my front walk and porch, I ended up shoveling a couple feet off ot those myself. Thank goodness the town got around to doing the sidewalk before I had to do that.

provides quality service. The owner gave me one free service for referring him to a neighbor who also signed for an annual lawn maintenance" program. This was an unexpected great deal and I'm happy to provide a reference!!

Some of the most common small hardscape projects include patio stones, sidewalks and retaining walls.

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.

We have been using them for about almost 5 years now. We are very pleased with how things have gone with them. They have a real-can-do-attitude. They did a great job with putting down brick pavers and it made a big difference. They are also reliable and I pleased with them. They always ask what I needed done every time come out. They help fertilize, trim and whatever else we need them to do.

Outstanding experience with
Franklin Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
and his crew. This was a large scale project: ripping up existing concrete driveway, expanding it to 30'x60" with pavers, crafting a walkway around to the back yard, creating a paver front porch, ripping up existing pool deck and installing pavers, and creating a backyard paver patio and walkway to the dock. Large job, and performed wonderfully.
Franklin Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
came out to give me an estimate (which was fair), so we contracted for the job. A little slow getting started due to backlog of paver inventory, but once they began the job they arrived on time every day and worked hard (generally three crew members, plus
Franklin Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
intermittently). HUGE improvement to our property. Crew was diligent, quiet (at least as quiet as can be expected when ripping up a driveway and pool deck!), and their detail work was outstanding (for example, around the curved kidney shaped pool with new coping all the way around). The curved patio, driveway, and walkways are all beautiful, and they really took the time to add exceptional detail to the job. The price was as quoted (actually a little higher than quoted, but that's only because we chose to add on some additional work once we saw what a great job they did!). Overall fantastic job...happy to serve as a reference for

would check in every day with us and made sure we were satisfied with the work done that day. If we weren't satisfied with the work done that day the work was corrected the next day. I cannot say enough good things about them.

They gave great design work and used creativity. They upgraded an item for us since they understood storm water problems. They adjusted the brickwork so we could manage that better. They did an exemplary job on the grading with the pavers. They did a great job with the installation of everything except some of the plants died. They did come out and replace those. They had good communication skills and were responsive.

got involved in the project form the very beginning. They helped me find a structural engineer who designed the wall and then provided the services to do all the work as needed. I requested three other companies to provide me quotes to do the work and this company provided the best overall combination of services and price. Their price was very competitive and their involvement in the project made me decide to use their services to complete the project. The company handled the permits and all the associated inspections needed by the City of

. The work was done in a very professional and timely manner. Construction is never a clean operation, and while some of the neighbors' yards were damaged during the construction process,
Franklin Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
repaired those yards and left them as they were before the construction operation. Some of the work got delayed due to inclement weather which caused some flooding of the trench where the footers were to be placed. The city inspector demanded the footers' trench dug an extra foot and the wall height extended to compensate for the new depth, all this caused the price of the wall to increase by about 10% once the project started. At the end they had some minor discrepancies with the drawings due to communication lapses with their own employees, but that did not affect the approval by the city nor the appearance of the final product. A very good company to work with.

We had a great experience with this company.

came and gave us an estimate and great ideas on paver pathway how to do more nicely and save some money. We always had a gravel pathway and it was long due on our to do list to have a paver pathway. Now we have a very nice looking pathway, done very professionally and for very good price. We would definitely use them again and recommend to others.

This went very, very well.
I gave them a B in punctuality because the project did not start on time. I realize that the nature of their work is such that they are dependent upon weather and site conditions and do not really consider this to be that big of a deal, but it started a few weeks later than they said it would, and more so than I originally expected. But if you don't have a time sensitive job, then these guys are excellent.
The head guy worked well with us to come up with a design for the new construction and was a good partner, not just a salesman or a bystander type. We appreciated the knowledgeable support during this phase as it kept us from making mistakes that we may have made with other contractors. There was also a bit of freedom that we gave, and he took, when it came to some of the details, but we ended up with more than we expected and a very good patio.
When it came time to actually do the work, they were prompt, courteous and professional in everything that they did, taking pains to accommodate some difficult terrain and garden work. We're into our first winter with the patio, and it is holding up very well despite some misgivings that I had with drainage on the site. All in all, it was very well done.
