in the past and should have fired him a long time ago but I kept giving him chances to correct issues. In this particular case, I hired him to grade and prep my backyard, put down sod around my basketball court and behind my cottage and plant some plants in the front of my house and in the back. On
31st he asked me to wire money in FULL via paypal, which I did. After about 2 months of delays he finally sent his crew to
the sod. He didnt do the proper grading of the property and threw some sod down. Within a week all the sod was dead. It came out lumpy, hilly and because it wasn't graded at all. It all died. The plants were doing OK except for the fact he I had to chase him to do some of the plants which he never did (red azaleas in the front) and he jipped me on some other plants in the front. Around the last Friday in August, I asked him to meet me at my house to walk the "dead" backyard. I showed him the mess of my dead grass and unlevel bumpy sodded areas around the court. I asked him if "he was proud of the job". He said No he would get it right. I asked him if he could just refund the grass and he agreed. He texted me and said he would have an exact refund amount by Saturday. On Sunday, I hadnt heard from him and I texted him again. He said he was working on the refund amount. Then Sunday late afternoon he said he changed his mind- he wasnt going to refund. Now he wanted ANOTHER
to re-sod. I told him I would only agree if he would put on letterhead that if I am not satisfied with sod by October 15th I would receive $2000 refund. (which was generous of me). He agreed. ay after day went by and he kept giving me excuses. I am exhausted. Cant take any more excuses and months of looking at dead grass! My neighbor used him and has already fired him for the same reason. Now I am forced to file a BBB complaint and get my attorney involved. Stay far away from This guy. He is shady. GOOGLE him and do your research before you invite him on your property and give him money. BEWARE. On a side note- I had another great company install some large trees on my property. The owner told me not to let
anywhere near my new installation. I didnt listen and sure enough my 4 trees died after 2 months because
turned off the water to that area for some reason and never came back to turn it on almost 2 weeks later!!

"We recently purchased a home with an existing exterior lighting system that was in a state of disrepair. We weren't sure what we have or whether anything was" salvageable. Premier was on time, courteous and was able to repair a section in the front of the house so it is now operational and we are aware of what other options we have for the future.

Angie's Answers

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 -


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.

Natural stones will have some degree of variance given the lack of pre-made consistency.


1/2" is too much from stone to stone and should be able to be fixed with additional leveling sand. 




Landscape Lighting reviews in Olympia


The people who work for this company have no knowledgebase and are rude combative and assaulting. The office has total disregard and apathy and totally of concern to the customers. I was physically assaulted by a worker with a blower who deliberately willfully and intentionally blew debris repeatedly up and down me and into my face and eyes .I observed the crew running over a pile of yard waste with a mower to turn it into mulch. I asked him not spray weeds that had been turned into mulch back into the yard to prevent further propagation. He deliberately sprayed the huge amount back onto the property and tried to throw it as far as possible with the blower using an uplifting sweeping scooping motion.

- Dona L.

It didn't go well at all. What's confusing about it is that their advertisement did have like the landscape lighting with the spotlight going up to the trees, and when they came out, all they were offering was just two little walkway lights. I thought it was like a bait and switch type of a thing and was trying to upsell. It took them a long time to make the appointment and then the 30 days had already expired.

Nick Tennis (owner) came by and we discussed what i wanted in terms of the exterior lighting of my home. He scheduled an appointment to come by and do the job. This project needed the services of a good electrician and Nick recommended one and also handled that service as well in the project. Then on the same day he and his assistant performed agree upon tasks of installing the entire lighting system. After the lights were fine-tuned or pointing just right to get the right effect on the house (done at night), it really looks great and makes my home look great too of course. Nick did what he said and also to my approval. Nick knows the art of lighting and also the current technology of the hardware so it made me feel like I was in good hands. I would recommend him to anyone. I would use him again. It is obvious that Nick cares about his quality of work and wants the customer to be happy......and I am.

He came when expected. He was very professional and friendly. He quickly diagnosed and fixed the water line problem, then asked about if I'd ever cleaned the refrigerator coils I hadn't and they clearly needed it, so he did that also. While there he shared a number of helpful tips to keep my refrigerator and other appliances running well....More /> I would use him again. I had used an Angie's list coupon - and my only complaint was that it wasn't clear what that covered. i wish he had let me know before he got started how he charges. i have no doubt that his charge was fair, and i didn't ask.

was fantastic. If I could give him an A++ I would. I called about a landscape light that was not working. He came by later in the day, tested it and determined that it needed to be replaced. He told me where to buy a new light and said he could come back the next day and install it which he did. Prompt, courteous, all around good person to work with. I highly recommend him.

If you are looking for landscape architects who are professional, reliable and, most of all, creative, then
Olympia Landscape Lighting Companies Provider Name Locked
is for you. We contacted them primarily for outdoor lighting for a backyard wedding. And in that area their ideas and execution were more than we had envisioned. But we kept asking them to do more --- stone work, plantings, mulch, re-seeding and more. All of it was done beautifully and on time for our event. They even came by on the day before the event just to make sure that eeverything was just right. We highly recommend them.

The entire project went as planned. The weather held us up a little but the crew and owner did everything they could to meet the timeline. The project stayed on budget and turned out beautiful. Our firepit has been used a few times and is perfect. We would highly recommend
