"2 sided story: I called them up and they sent someone out. I told them exactly what I wanted - said he totally understood. Said he handed in information after" he got sick, but didn't unable to find it. After speaking with boss, they said he would come out, but it kept getting pushed back until I was unable to meet. He sent and email with the information but I was only able to open the picture - it was nothing like what we talked about. What has happened to them, they got so snowed with requests from Angie's List they were unable to meet their demands. They're probably decent guys, just in over their heads.

"I called
early on a Monday morning to fix an outdoor light that lights up an outside staircase at night. I wanted it done as soon as possible" because the staircase is very dark at night and can be very dangerous. I spoke with
who took all the information and gave me a very reasonable estimate. She said
would be there in a half hour.
arrived exactly on time. He assessed the situation and made a suggestion as to what was needed. He conferred with
, his boss and then
actually showed up too.
was so nice, friendly and professional.
installed the light and he did a great job. Now I don't have to worry about those dark stairs. Thank you
,
and
. I would definitely recommend
to my friends and I would definitely use them again.

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.

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.

They were extremely punctual especially with my time-frame. I had only one day to get it done and they did it well. I ended up paying a little more than I had expected.

Well, I wasted a lot of money on this one. I bought the $499 Angie's List deal in the hopes of having the exterior lighting improved in the front and back of my house.
First: After the work was completed, and the new transformer installed, I was horrified to see they had installed it directly in front of my house. The thing is HUGE and quite ugly!! I called a few days later to have it moved. This time the manager came out (he was very nice) and wholeheartedly agreed it was not the right location and they moved it to the side of the house and out of sight.
Second: I had one dark area which needed a light. They said it couldn't be done (unless we went underground) because it was on the other side of a door and the wires from the transformer would have to snake up and around the front door to get a light to that area. It honestly doesn't make sense to me because there are two OTHER lights right near that area which are also on the same timer so there's obviously electricity. Now, only half my house is lit.
Finally: All they basically did was change the transformer and replace the old lights with the same exact lights. I had a credit from a previous "deal" which I never used. They could have at least offered to upgrade the lights to

First a kitchen circuit was dead but the circuit breaker wasn't tripped. Investigating, I found that another different but nearby circuit carried a current that enflamed my DVD player. Oh oh, time for an expert. Checking Angie's List reviews, especially the histogram,

appeared to be far and away the best, so I called them late in the afternoon. I soon found that they deserved their excellent reviews. The owner
Los Angeles Landscape Lighting Companies Provider Name Locked
was at my house in less than an hour after I called. He worked for two hours and determined that there was somewhere a break in a wire common to the two circuits. The next morning
Los Angeles Landscape Lighting Companies Provider Name Locked
arrived and explained what he had seen and delegated the task of finding the break to a two man crew

then left. Both

and

The broken wire was located at a little or never used receptacle, singed by heat perhaps generated by the recent addition of an electric car to circuits not ready for it. I'm lucky I didn't have a house fire. Not only was all the necessary work done,

also fixed several other nagging problems along the way (a buzzing transformer above the ceiling, an outdoor light that no longer worked, etc., etc.). I can't recommend

just finished landscaping our front yard and, once again, did incredible work. He had done a wonderful job on our back yard last year and we were so pleased we brought him back to do more. He's an expert in all kinds of landscaping and particularly good at finding low water plants that are beautiful as well. On top of all that, he's a really great guy. We plan to hire him again when we finally get rid of the last of our lawns.

We purchased an Angie's List "big deal" from
Los Angeles Landscape Lighting Companies Provider Name Locked
for 2 hours of electrical work for $109 plus parts. I selected this company based on the Angie's List reviews. We have had most of our past electrical work done by handymen and decided it was time to utilize licensed/bonded electricians. We needed inside and outside electrical work ASAP before Thanksgiving.

contacted us within a couple of hours of our having purchased the deal and he was able to fit us in the next afternoon.

Los Angeles Landscape Lighting Companies Provider Name Locked
came promptly the next afternoon. He worked very efficiently for a little more than 2 hours and only charged us the additional cost of a circuit he needed to replace ($16). He examined the circuitry throughout the house, found the problem as to why the fuses have been blowing, replaced a circuit and advised that most of the circuitry in our 85 year-old house was updated not too long ago and is in pretty good shape. He advised that only one area has not been updated. He also inspected all of our outdoor lighting, figured out which transformers and circuits run which lights, tried to fix one transformer/timer that wasn't working and recommended that it needed replacement. We were so pleased with the work and the value that we decided to hire

to replace the broken timer, determine what needed to be done to replace the old circuitry in one part of the house, and to get all of the landscape lighting up and running. Again,

returned the next day as promised (despite President Obama's visit to our neighborhood which caused unbelievable traffic snarls...).
Los Angeles Landscape Lighting Companies Provider Name Locked
and his apprentice were here for 6 hours. They brought a new transformer/timer which they installed and then worked on the extensive landscape lighting that wasn't working in the back yard. They needed some unusual bulbs and had to replace one landscape light fixture which required two trips to Lowes. They also went under the house (not a pleasant experience as it is quite a narrow space) and took a picture to show us why the one area of the house most likely had not been rewired with the rest of the house: the box is practically unreachable/inaccessible because of a complicated matrix of plumbing pipes/fixtures blocking access.
Los Angeles Landscape Lighting Companies Provider Name Locked
advised that, while the job is do-able, it would be expensive in labor costs because of the difficulty reaching the area and recommended that it really isn't necessary to rewire at this time. He recommended simply replacing two more circuits which he proceeded to do. We decided to hold off rewiring that area until such time as it becomes absolutely necessary. Total parts amounted to $252 and they charged $380 for the labor. The work was done professionally and they were very efficient. This is a family owned/family run business that we found to be totally deserving of the excellent reviews by other Angie's List members. We will use

for all of our electrical needs in the future. We have already scheduled them to work on our front yard landscape lighting.

It went very well. I had a tight deadline the job needed to be completed by and they were finished well ahead of that date. I liked working with their designer,
Los Angeles Landscape Lighting Companies Provider Name Locked
. There were some things that we had talked about in the design process that didn't exactly make it to the final product, but I attribute that to my not following up on some things as well as I could have.
I enjoyed working with
Los Angeles Landscape Lighting Companies Provider Name Locked
. He provided some good solutions to some tricky problems. And
Los Angeles Landscape Lighting Companies Provider Name Locked
