"Easy to work with and very competitive prices. But actually getting the work done took all summer despite my May deposit. My impression was that this small, highly rated company took" on more work than they could handle and got backed up. When they did the job, they were super, but the job itself kept being postponed -- I had calls about scheduling from 3 different people, and was never sure who would be setting the job: an office assistant,
, or
the owner?
, his brother, and
all worked on the job itself, and I enjoyed working with all three. I just wish they had done the job when first expected.

"I am ending a round of multiple Angie's List hires around the house for several major projects, and
is my first truly outstanding find! She is passionate" about her profession, absolutely first class in her knowledge of all things landscaping, and has the hardest working and most professional team that I have ever met. I'm so happy that I waited a few extra days for my initial consultation with her because she was more than worth the wait! I find house projects to be extremely stressful and I was literally smiling when they arrived each day and felt like I truly being listened to during the process. She installed fantastic drain pipes where we were having standing water issues, she lowered a bed that was causing mold to enter into our front master closet and cleaned the area thoroughly so that they problem is now gone, she was even cleaning my brick and sidewalk after they were finished because she was so worried about the mold and algae that she noticed growing there. I was worried that I was taking advantage of her when it came time to pay because they clearly did more work than was in our original scope, but she insisted that I not pay more. I didn't really know what I wanted in my flowers beds, other than fool-proof, and she had a vision and made it happen. I am honestly looking forward to seeing her again after we have purchased our fountain that she will install and setup. I already know the cost and she will get the call when we find it. She made this entire process enjoyable and my husband and I are grateful to her for being a true professional and just a lovely person!

responded to my request for an estimate immediately and his crew was able to start work about a week later.
and his crew were professional" and did an excellent job. We had a miscommunication on the retaining wall but the crew was out the very next day to correct it. I would not hesitate to recommend
or to use him in the future! Great job! Thanks! We love it.

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.

Pavers are low maintenance. Keep your paver walkway or patio clean with regular sweeping and some soap and water. Use a sealer to keep pavers looking like new.

Rocks and boulders can add the final touch to your landscape. They can provide seating, work as steps or retaining walls, and help define plant beds.

Pavers offer versatility and individual style for driveways and paths. They can be adjusted or replaced more easily than concrete and provide better drainage.

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.

I stressed that I was looking for two things in this project: a sturdy/sound retaining wall combined with an aesthetically pleasing result. I am very happy with the work. Both objectives were met!
Salt Lake Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
(?) and his assistant were pleasant and approachable. They took the time to discuss my concerns before work began, and assured me that my objectives of sturdiness and good appearance would be met. They stopped work when I came out to see how things were going an hour into the project and gave me an update, and checked to see if their work so far met my expectations (It did!). The work was completed in under three hours. I was pleasantly surprised when I subsequently received their bill and saw that their original price quote was adjusted to reflect the actual time/scope of project upon completion. Nice to see that kind of integrity in a service provider! I would definitely call on these guys in the future.

During a bathroom renovation we came across a good deal of water damage at the rear base of our house. We had Green Desires come out to analyze the area and it was determined that around the whole base of our house, the existing flashing ended below the level of the yard, so during rainy times the water would run past the flashing directly to our siding and eat away at the base. Our patio pavers were also pitched the wrong direction causing water to run towards the house rather than away.
Green Desires did a renovation of our patio to fix the pitch as well as make it more safe to walk on for our children. They also removed all the old flashing, added new flashing to a much higher point on the walls, and reapplied the old siding. In areas where the siding was heavily damaged, they replaced with new siding.
I was very pleased with the work that they did and would use both Christian and

We first met with there landscape designer in June, 2014. We worked with him on our vision and liked what they presented to us. We put a deposit down in June.
Our work wasn't started until late September, but we were fine with the delay. We understood that they were busy and we had waited to book until mid summer. I would suggest contacting them in the early spring if you are interested in having work done in the summer months.
There employees were all very hard working and professional. We did have a few issues with the lighting installation but it was taken care of immediately.

I would highly recommend
