replaced our entire creaked driveway and front walkway. We got only two bids and i liked the way
went over all the" issues that we were having with us on our first meeting.
ensured us that the new driveway and walk was going to be properly graded to slope away from the house.
and his crew tore out our old driveway and walk in one day then they had to form it and install rebar and then they took care of the inspection They then poured the new cement in one day. The work was done very quickly and professionally. The new driveway and sidewalk look wonderful! Its nice not to have cracked cement anymore. Thanks again

Hardscaping

Creating a unique look for your yard means more than just cut grass, trimmed shrubbery and pretty flowers. Hardscaping, the creation of any man-made structures on your lawn, is just as crucial for overall appearance.

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.

got back to me right away after leaving him a message on his phone. He is located in the west suburbs, so was able to get out to our home to discuss the project within 1 week. He gave us great suggestions, pictures and references of other homes in the area that he had completed projects that we could view. He was priced reasonable, and he was able to fit our needs and timeline.

August 7th I wrote again asking why we had not received the check. He then responded asking that he would like to meet with us sign an agreement to get you repaid. August 31, I had to write to him again because we have not heard anything. We advised him that we would be happy to sign his agreement but again, he hasn't replied. We even sent him a certified letter on April 8th asking for our deposit. He never picked it up.

The Co-owner
Scarborough Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
made the initial visit to our property and brought along his landscape assistant
Scarborough Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
, who would be managing our project. He gave an overview of how he would re-landscape our property listening to our major concerns. His visit was quick and he was decisive in his thoughts, noting that any refinements could be worked out with
Scarborough Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
when the work commenced. Sketches would have been a large additional fee, so they were not done. His price was in the range of the other landscapers we interviewed. We choose ProEarth because they seemed willing to use native plants and generate a plan that worked with some of our large plants that would be staying. We were also happy to be supporting a family-owned local business.
Several months after the initial visit (we are a 5 unit
Scarborough Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
, so we had to have a ballot vote and give everyone enough time to deposit their share of the funds before going forward), we put down a $1000 deposit as requested, and we asked to meet with
Scarborough Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
to go over final plans. This is when we got a glimmer of what was to come.

arrived in a bad mood and saying that she didn't keep her notes from the first visit. But she presented her plant list and when we asked for two modifications in plant choices she got very irritated, saying that we had already agreed to what she had chosen. She then took a phone call from
Scarborough Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
and they proceeded to have a 15 min scream-
Scarborough Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
about whether or not she could use a truck that weekend for personal purposes. After that, she said she was out of time and that she needed to go, but that we could trust her choice in native plants. Later, after several emails, through which we reiterated our request for "no Birds-of-Paradise",
Scarborough Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
suggested a tree that is native to southeastern USA, saying that we had similar climates! Clue #2, sigh. When I asked by name for a couple more unusual plants,
Scarborough Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
said they would not be running all over to get specially requested plants.
The day of planting, we noticed that there were a lot of bougainvillea bushes setting about, which had not been previously discussed, apparently they were trying to plant whatever they could get inexpensively. We had to ask that they not be planted, since they did not go with the overall plan.
Our property is near the coast and has a lot of trees. Approximately, 70% is shaded. The native plants they planted in the shade have either died or are slowly dying. It turns out that they were ALL plants that required "Full Sun". I have since been replacing them with natives that do well in "Part shade". Thus far, this has cost about $400 dollars, and a lot of my time and effort, and we still have a long way to go to get this straightened away.
Another frustration was that there was no adherence to a project timeline.
Scarborough Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
(
Scarborough Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
's wife) runs the office and sweet-talked me into making the final payment after the project was 85% complete. Huge mistake. It took 4 more months until they finished. When we were told that something would happen "this week or next week", it usually occurred sometime in the next 3-4 weeks, and typically after an extra phone calls from us. And then they had the nerve to complain that we were difficult to deal with because several of us had to get involved. If they had just done what they said they were going to do, when they said they were going to do it, there would not have to be all those interactions.
Even the bill was messed up...The plant list on the bill they sent us was so far from what was actually planted that we had to send them a correct list, and point out that they were still short by a dozen plants and a trellis.
I could go on but, I think you get the picture.
Did anything go well? Yes. The
Scarborough Patio Pavers Provider Name Locked
crew who did the heavy lifting were very polite and hard working, and did a great job of clearing the old plants and ivy, and their associated root systems. They then graded the area, and put in the drip irrigation system prior to planting the new plants. I wish their level of professionalism had extend to upper management and the
landscape designer, who were condescending, yet not nearly as knowledgeable as they needed to be.
And so, in summary, what should have been a fun and exciting home improvement project turned into a draining hassle.

It was suburb! Over a space of 3 years, he designed with our architect a retaining wall 137 ft long and 34 ft tall (17 ft underground). The wall saved my home from sliding and is so well constructed and designed that it will last 200 years and will withstand a 9.0 earthquake.
