takes the calls and
makes the repairs but both come together and they preferred to go through the gate than through" the house. I had several problems, some that I didn't even realize I had. They work fast and fees were quoted before work was done. I'm very satisfied with the speed, convenience and cost.

"
arrived exactly on time and quickly determined the issues we were having with the two year old fountain on our patio. He fixed the problem," configured the fountain to our preferences and most importantly, showed me how to trouble shoot the problem if it reoccurs. Great service, reasonable price, courteous and professional. We couldn't ask for more. Will definitely use him again.

Jo Ellen Myers Sharp, the Hoosier Gardener, gives advice on how to winterize water features in the yard. Preparing features such as water gardens, ponds, waterfalls for winter helps avoid damage from freezing and thawing water.

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.

From start to finish,

was a pleasure to work with. He is professional, reliable and knowledgeable. Unlike the other companies I talked with,
Miami Fountain Installers Provider Name Locked
was willing (and enthusiastic) about doing the job that I wanted done, for a reasonable price and getting it done when I needed it. The others were very locked into their own approach and design, and not interested in my needs or budget.
Miami Fountain Installers Provider Name Locked
was able to get a good sense of what I was looking for, and was totally focused on meeting my needs from beginning to end. In fact,

created more work for himself at various times throughout the project, as he came up with ideas to improve the look and functionality of the pond (and he did this while keeping the price the same). I was very particular about what I wanted and insisted on being present during the project, which does not make things easier for any contractor, but

I was given a window of time for them to come out and preform the job. I stayed at home waited for them, I missed a funeral waiting for them. I called a handful of time. twice I left a message and no one called me back. Very unprofessional. I will not be using this company again and I would like to warn anyone else from using them.

We have a new three-tier garden fountain, and needed advice from someone experienced and bright.
Miami Fountain Installers Provider Name Locked
was the answer to our prayers. He was prompt, enthusiastic, and knowledgeable. He installed a control on the pump so we were finally able to get the flow as low as we wanted. He advised us regarding the hard wiring of the fountain (which was not yet finalized), and provided lots of helpful ideas and insights. We would not hesitate to use

was an absolute pleasure to work with and his word is his bond, which sadly we homeowners don't see enough of. I have worked with Tropical Backyards for the last two years and will continue to do so in the future as well as recommend them to anyone looking for quality work at a reasonable price.

Two very polite and hard workers showed up right on schedule and helped me remove all of the unwanted items from my front flower beds. The plan was that they would work for an hour and half and do as much as possible. We talked through the job before they started the clock on that time. They worked so hard and were so skilled that they finished the project I had planned for them and used the remaining time to help me spread the mulch that I had planned to do on my own after they left. My only complaint is that the company was so high in demand (with good reason, these guys are great!), that they were booked out for a while and it was about two weeks before my initial interaction and when they could find a time to get out to my house.

was very professional although he was busy understandbly if you are good, so I had to wait until he could see me the following week. He calls when he is on his way and was on time. I really appreciated that and he gave me a result on my fountain that was better than I had received previously, so he took the time to explain what the problem has been and I was very pleased with knowing what I could expect from someone who really knows this profession.

has been cleaning and maintaining our fountain for about 10 years. He is very professional and conscientious. He shows up every three months and does his job without disturbing anything or anyone. He keeps our fountain running clean and strong and allows us to enjoy the pleasant sights and sounds all year long. I would highly recommend his services to anyone who has a fountain in their yard or business.

Miami Fountain Installers Provider Name Locked
and
Miami Fountain Installers Provider Name Locked
took the fountain apart, pressure washed and stabilized the foundation by laying concrete under the ground. They then reinstalled the fountain. They even lined up the designs.
The fountain looks brand new. They cleaned everything up, put the moss rocks back around the landscaping area and filled it in with dirt. Very happy with their work! Would definitely use them again!
