"The staff there is very helpful and always easy to work with. I have been working with them on landscaping projects for years. Highly recommend.

"It was absolutely wonderful working with owner
and her staff. Everyone was knowledgable, creative and patient. Communication was easy" - a wonderful collaboration. Everyone stressed
's goal of creating a landscape plan that we loved and that grew in beauty over the years.
and staff brought a sensibility to the project that is difficult to describe. There are many discrete points of interest, however, the overarching achievement is the masterful placement of rocks and plants, reshaping of the garden and lawn in the front/side yard. The yard went from a pass through area to a "stop and sit a while" outdoor room. It is restful, nourishing and stimulating at the same time. We love it.On the more practical side, the job was started as anticipated and completed on schedule and within budget. The landscape ground crew worked efficiently and well together - a delightful group.
was always available if a question came up, as happened occasionally with the placement of a tree or rock, or if it was not clear how to execute the plan on the land.
's exacting standards were demonstrated when she had staff re-do a small part of the path and the placement of large two trees. She also was present when the crew came to place the fence panels to insure that they were located for maximum effect. This interplay between owner and work crew played a critical role in getting the project done "just right".We rated
. "Excellent" in all categories because they are!

Angie's Answers

I second the original question (still unanswered). Speaking as someone who logged in today to try to find an attorney, I see this category as one that's exactly what I have my Angie's List membership for:

1. It's important that I find a good one
2. I'm not an expert enough to know myself who is a good one
3. The industry is full of advertisements and misinformation
4. I wish I knew what experiences other people have had


?
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.


?
I'm not sure Angie et. al. want you to have a complete answer to this question. By re-subscribing at the Indiana State Fair in 2012, I think I paid $20.00 per year for a multi- year subscription. Maybe even less. At the other extreme--and I hope my memory isn't faulty about this--I think the price, for my area, for ONE year was an outrageous $70.00. And they debited me automatically without warning. I had to opt out of that automatic charge. I like Angie's List, but if some of the companies they monitor behaved the way they do in this respect, they'd be on some sort of Pages of Unhappiness. I'll be interested to see if this comment gets published or censored out of existence.

That's very difficult to answer without seeing the house. As one poster said, the prep is the most important part. On newer homes that don't have a lot of peeling paint, the prep can be very minimal even as low as a couple or a few hundred dollars for the prep labor.

On a 100 year old home with 12 coats of peeling paint on it, then the prep costs can be very high and can easily exceed 50% of the job's labor cost.

A 2100 sq ft two story home could easily cost $1000 just for the labor to prep for the paint job. That number could climb too. Throw in lots of caullking  or window glazing, and you could be talking a couple or a few hundred dollars more for labor.

Painting that home with one coat of paint and a different color on the trim could run roughly $1000 or more just for labor. Add a second coat  and that could cost close to another $1000 for labor.

For paint, you may need 20 gallons of paint. You can pay from $30-$70 for a gallon of good quality exterior paint. The manufacturer of the paint should be specified in any painting contract. Otherwise, the contractor could bid at a Sherwin-Williams $60 per gallon paint and then paint the house with $35 Valspar and pocket the difference. $25 dollars per gallon times 20 gallons? That's a pretty penny too.

That was the long answer to your question. The short answer is $2000 to $4000 and up, depending upon the amount of prep, the number of coats, the amount of trim, and the paint used.

You have to put your self in the shoes of a business that is in business to turn a profit of some sort. All businesses have different overhead which in turn decides what their bottom line would be on their services. I personally would not go with an unlicensed professional for this type of install. You are messing with gas, venting issues, electrical wiring{electric water heater} and updated code issues such as a drain pan and tempature and relief drain lines for heaters that currently do not have them. I do agree that there are some companies that are way out of line for their installs but most of these companies are the really big companies that have very high overheads  I would assume. Tank type water heaters have changed over the last several years and with these safety changes come bigger prices. The price of steel thanks to China is skyrocketing and tank type water heaters are made of steel. Most wholesale plumbing supply companies cannot match what the big box stores are selling at retail to consumers. I happen to think from research that heaters such as Rheem, Bradford White and AOSmith who have been in business forever make a better product than what you can buy in the big box outlets. You also have to take in consideration the location of the water heater that is being replaced. Is it in the house, basement, garage or attic. Most 40 and 50 gallon water heaters that are purchased in a plumbing wholesale store in Texas cost between 300-340 for a 6 year warranty heater with 6 year on parts and tank. Speaking of warranty. Most big box companies will take a least 24 hours to a week to get your warranty problem taken care of. Most reputable plumbing companies will give same day service if they installed the heater.

So lets break down a typical install at cost to a licensed plumber in Texas

Heater: $315, water shut off $6.50, water flex lines or unions to code $20, gas flex line and cut off to code $12, misc fittings $15, Total $368.50 Lets add a 35% profit which is some what low  for a business $129, Total 497.50

This doesnt  include permits, pan and drain or any venting issues. The vent must go from the heater to the outside of roof using double wall vent.

Cost of permit on average $60

Most plumbing companies allow for 3 hours of time for a water heater. This includes picking the new one up. Delivering out to house. Draining and removing old water heater. Hauling off old heater. Installing new heater up to code. Going down to city and pulling permit.

Average Labor charges for heater installs $400

That would make this install run without extras on any code issues $957.50

I just had a 50 gallon gas water heater installed in my house for $1200 but I needed a pan installed. I used a licensed plumber.

Todd said it best.

An itemized list / cost breakdown, more often than not is used against the contractor when it is shared with other builders who will then beat it.

Good contractors use good people, and good people cost more.  Just the cost of having the appropriate insurance / bond can be the difference between winning a job or losing it ot a 'lower bid'.

It is the rule of three; there is Good, Cheap and Fast.  You can have any two:  Good and Cheap, won't be Fast; Good and Fast, won't be Cheap;  Cheap and Fast, won't be Good!

When comparing bids, it isn't the cheapest or the 'nicest' person you should select.   You should understand why there is a large price difference (it shows there are gaps in your design program or what you have asked for specifically, which means there may be arguments later).  If most of the bids are in line, and one is way high or way low,  you want to know why before dismissing or selecting them.

A price-only decision almost always costs more in the long run. 

Good luck!

showed up when promised to talk to me about the work, then provided a written estimate in a timely fashion. We had an e-mail conversation to confirm a few details about the scope of work and price. His price was a bit lower than the competion, and based on the price, and service during the estimate phase we hired him to do the work. We agreed on a general time frame for the work, and a week or so before the work was scheduled to start

They came to do the first round of installing. They did it while I was at work. When I got home, much of it was done. They didn't do a lot of it to plan. With the changes that they made, what we wanted to achieve, wasn't. It resulted in goals of the plan not being achieved. I called our contact, who was the designer who came out to see it and was quite upset. She asked me if the owner could come tomorrow so she could see what happened. It almost looked as if nothing had been done. The pavement stone was not near what was on the plan. It was just not functional. With the grating and the grass, you could still see it was not to grade. Water pooled in areas with little

running down, so the grass did not grow. When they had finished the first round, they still had a couple of plants that needed to be planted because they were out of stock. The next day, I got a call from the owner. I was ready for her to apologize and ask when she could come see the work. Instead, she told me about the workers coming to plant the remaining plants and confirm the remainder of the payment. She had no knowledge of the problem when I told her, she told me I should talk with the installation supervisor myself to resolve the problem. I told her that I didn't think it was appropriate. The owner then said she would get back with me. She still had not apologized. Then, they sent me an agreement letter with what had needed to be done to resolve the problems and complete the contract. Their initial letter was grossly insufficient. I had to spend a lot of time articulating the issues to a level of detail required to try to work with these people. It almost looked as if nothing had been done. I improved the letter in order to complete all of the issues. It took some back and forth, but we finally got to an agreement. The day they came out to do the things based on the letter, I came out to check the work. They were widening the plan area in a manner that was butting up against a birch tree and not to plan specifications. The plan was right there. I invested a lot in a plan that they had to start with, and it just did not turn out the right way. In the front, there are still a couple of loose stones. They were supposed to come out to repair them, but they still have not and now it is winter time. They have not even called. We were planning on doing more work with them in the future, but not now.

They spread the work out over the entire summer, so as to attend to their nursery, but we understood that the work would be done on an as available basis and accepted that. We were not seeking fast, but rather a work of art and that's what we got. We have also been to their nursery to choose additional plants and they are of the highest quality and include a broad and lively assortment.
