"I called for an estimate to repair my backyard fountain. They were nice on the phone and had me email them photos. They did not call me back or respond to my email" so I called them the next day and was told they couldn't open the pics but please text them. I did. I again got no response and I called them back. They said oh yes and told me they could repair it and said someone would call me back to schedule a time for a technician to come out. No one every called me back. At this point I felt I was over their lack of responsiveness and decided to move on. Two months later I got an invoice in the mail for $161.00 for 'pump replacement'. I called and asked to speak with a manager. , the owner, got on the phone and told me they had dispatched someone to fix it. When I said that never happened he got very defensive then told me to 'just tear up the receipt", to which I told him I had no intention of paying anyway. Bad service, unresponsive. Based on the previous review I'm glad they didn't come. If their work quality was anything like their service I would have been disappointed.

"We discussed placement, look and water volume movement and I left the design and completion in ' capable hands. He and his worker showed" up when they said they would and completed a beautiful waterfall that does all he promised. He completed it in the time he had promised and everything looks and performs as promised.

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. 




Fountain Installation reviews in Atlanta


This guy tore up the fountain, killed a couple of trees and left with 6k. He will not return my calls. He looks like a trusting relative... Give him nothing.

This was the second estimate that we have got. The price was reasonable and we decided to go with this company. was very prompt and profesional. We will be happy to recomend and use this company in the future.
- Jeff G.

Just as all the other reviews there is a wait to get to come and then a wait for the work to start but everything works exactly as promised. He made all his date commitments, did the job exactly as specified, and for the fixed price agreed to. He is clearly an artisan and not just a construction guy -- we were specific with where ...More we wanted things done but asked his suggestions on the approach. He was spot on with recommendations and created a great design.


The work exceeded all of my expectations. Navid was very personable and his design far surpassed other designs presented by other landscapers. He is very talented with great vision for designing. He also interviewed me to find out where I spent most of my time and helped me focus most of the work in one special area instead of just doing random projects ...More that did not deliver a special place to relax outside. The quality of the work was extremely good, and they started and finished in just 4 days. I have worked with other landscapers previously and had been interviewing them and Navid's design and price far outdid anyone else's. They left everything clean and even did extra cleanup in other areas and helped me out with other little things free of charge. When they started digging out the previous destroyed cement sidewalk, there was more concrete and brick that took a long time to excavate and remove, but did not charge me additional money and stuck with the initial price. They also utilized some of the brick and repaired another area free of charge that took a lot of man hours and skilled masons. I saved a ton of money that someone else would have nickel and dimed me for.
Basically, was excellent to work with and delivered way above and beyond expectations. The design is amazing and my friends and neighbors are amazed what he did with the space. Navid has a real gift for designing. I got an huge amount of work done in a very short period of time at a very good price. Anyone else would not have been able to do that much and would have charged me much. much more. I am very excited about my new yard and love it!
- Christy A.

I highly recommend to anyone who has a yard project, big or small. Navid is a great guy who works very hard to please his customers. The job was completed in less than two weeks from the time I first contacted . That's pretty unbelievable for a job in Midtown Atlanta. And the quality certainly ...More did not suffer. The guys who work for Navid are top quality workers. They were such a pleasure to have around and worked their butts off to make me happy. The concrete slab they poured is perfect, and the fence they built looks great.
Navid is a true landscape artist, and I love the idea he came up with for our back yard. He is also very fair with his pricing. The price he quoted me is the price I paid. There were no unexpected upcharges. He goes the extra mile to make sure his customers are pleased with the work product, even if he has to dip into his own pocket. That's what I love about . You know they're going to take care of you.
We are LOVING our new back yard. It truly enhances our lives, and for that, I cannot thank enough!
- Brende M.

was very helpful. He gave me a few options and did not push for more expensive options. His charges for parts and labor are very reasonable. I plan to use him in the future for any new work on the pond.
- Elizabeth R.

This was our third attempt with differenct contractors to resolve an issue with an outdoor water feature (waterfall) with additional stone work to accompany existing landscaping. Navid had excellent ideas for the new features that really accent what was in place. The waterfall was a nightmare for him as he attempted to find a leak that probably dated ...More back to the first installation. After repeated efforts and much frustration the problem was identified and resolved to everyones satisfaction. I can say with a degree of confidence that the previous contractors would have thrown in the towel and walked away. Excellent job.
