"It was everything I wanted!
, the owner of the company, called me back within a day of leaving a voicemail for him. Within the next few days" he was over my house and we came up with a plan on what would get done. I told him I wanted a coy pond with rock features as well as shrubbery and trees and lawn maintenance. In less then two weeks I had the beautiful lawn he had promised me. He was a very nice person to work with and his crew were wonderful as well. He now comes biweekly to maintain my lawn, cut the grass, etc. and it is always a pleasure to see him.

"I'd ordered the mulch on Angie's List on June 30th and was expecting a call before delivery. A truck with mulch showed up the next morning with no heads" up. Quick delivery, just caught me off guard. Decided to let him dump the mulch on top of a pile of tarped over dirt (his preference due to wet ground conditions) which made the mulch pile look fairly large. I read a couple reviews where some customers felt they didn't get the amount they had ordered, so I took the time to measure mine while I was placing it around my property. I used a 17 cuft cart filled right to the very top each load. 10 yds = 270 cuft /17cuft cart = 15.88 carts of mulch. When I finished I ticked off 15.5 carts of mulch moved with the rest being unrecoverable on the ground. Quantity wise they were right on. Quality wise the mulch is average. I had some clay fill I had to pick out of some of it (probably left in the truck from a previous delivery). The wood itself was poorly ground. I ordered brown, mine looks black. I would order from them again, but then I know what I'm getting. If I want better looking mulch for a different area, then I'll look elsewhere. Service and delivery/driver were very good.

Mulch and Topsoil

Mulch can be a lot of different things, but at its core it exists as a material that is applied to landscaping, walking paths and flower beds for aesthetic purposes, to suppress weed growth, retain moisture and supply nutrients to soil through decay. Topsoil is the nutrient-rich, uppermost layer of soil that is ideal for gardening and planting.

You should check your mulch for compaction about once a month, says McWilliams. (Photo courtesy of Angie's List member Robert P. of Boston)

Dear Angie: I recently put down recycled rubber as mulch for my front flower bed. How reliable and sturdy is the rubber mulch compared to wood chips?

Landscapers mulch to moderate soil temperature, conserve moisture, suppress weeds and to add organic matter to the soil as the shredded bark breaks down.

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.

Client was very happy that landscaper was able to reach out after hours in order to complete the job as soon as possible. He was very prompt at coming to do the work as well.

I called and left a message inquiring information, within minutes I received a return call where Mr.Bonsera whom provided me with all the information I was looking for. I explained to him that I had a large space that needed to be filled asap where a pool was removed and needed the work done as quickly as possible due to other projects I had in place. The price that I was given was very reasonable and fair. Within 24hrs I had a truck at my residence ready to fill in the void. It was completed quickly, professionally and was even given some additional assistance with projects I had. Mr. Bonsera recommended a

Great interactions with everyone from the team. Amazing customer service. When the gravel arrived and was delivered, not one single stone wound up outside of the pavers we had lined up, or on our driveway. This made my gravel driveway project easy and wasn't too labor intensive. We have never had anything but great experiences with

He laid the sod over the sprinkler system. First rain the pvc pipes were all sticking out of the ground and the sprinkler broke off from the faucet he connected it to costing me to have a $400 water bill. I called to have him come out to repair and he wanted another $500 to put the pipes under ground. I refused to pay more so I filed a complaint because he is not licensed to perform this work and he would not guarantee or fix at his cost. I had to pay a license sprinkler guy an additional 300.00 to repair his work and will have to replace the sod as it's all dead. DO NOT HIRE THIS KID, DOESN'T KNOW WHAT HE IS DOING.

The guys took great care to avoid our lower-hanging tree branches when backing up their truck on our horseshoe shaped driveway, and deposited the mulch exactly where we wanted it. The Angie's List coupon we used gave us such a fantastic discount, too! We will use these guys again and again in the future for sure!

It went very well. We contacted each other via messages on Angie's List and arranged for them to come out to perform the service per the Angie's List Big Deal. When they came out on the appointed day, they called me to let me know my beds MIGHT be just a bit larger than expected and that they might not have enough mulch to finish the job. I told them that was fine and to do the best they could. Well, it turned out they did have enough mulch to finish the job, and that it was almost exactly the number of square feet from the deal! I wasn't home when the work was performed, but when I came back I was very pleased with the way it turned out. That's a very good deal for me not to have to mulch those beds myself!

Very knowledgeable on what plants/flowers/vegetation will grow well with existing soil, sun, and weather conditions on my property. Highest level of professionalism. Always went the extra mile to make sure we were happy with design, flower and plant selection, and work progress. Kept well informed on progress. Provided plant list with photos prior to starting work and actual plants and flowers prior to planting so we could comment and provide input. Provided guidance on how to continue to care for gardens.
