"We purchased the Angie's Deal for 2 hours of service for $100. They were very busy and booked up, but when we told them this was an active leak they sent out" a two man team that very afternoon. The repair went fairly easy and the workers were very courteous. We asked that the hole be left open (we would fill it in later) so we could make sure the leak was indeed fixed. It was. They weren't here for the full 2 hours, but we really didn't have anything else for them to check. We were just grateful for the prompt reply to our problem.

"In September of 2014 we sodded our entire yard. We hired
the following February to manage the grass and provide weed control for our beds." I should have realized from the start I was in trouble - the salesman said he'd start the services on the first of the next month but before the day was out the office had already run our credit our card and started the services. I figured they'd wait till the snow melted to treat and let it go. The next sign I was in trouble was when I asked the technician treating the yard how much it would be if I added an additional service, roundup to
weeds in a wooded area behind the yard, and he wanted cash. I paid him, he told me he sprayed, but the weeds never died - I let that go, too. My next interaction with this company should have been the third strike, but this, too, I let go. I informed the lady running the office I would need around 100
of pine straw and 12 yards of mulch. Shortly after they opened I stopped by to get the first load of the four I would probably do that day as I had a few friends over to help. The lady running the office insisted I pay by the load. Really - by the load - I'm not a stranger off the street - I'm a customer that pays them monthly for their services - they know where I live - they have my credit card number and they USE it every month. I offered to have her run $1,000 on my card, but she didn't want to have to give me a credit back, too much trouble. I had to pay each and every time I time I picked up a load. Money above all else with them had been my experience with this company from the start. But boy did the yard looked great when I finished! Brand new sod that had established itself well, brown mulch in the special beds and pine straw in the rest. All was great February, March, April and some of May. But toward the end of May the weeds sprouted in massive amounts in the grass and beds. And even though we paid extra to treat with a pre-emergent and again to
what they missed, weeds were everywhere. The grass wasn't looking good either. I called the sales guy several times to address the issues, but his wife was having a difficult labor. He'd get someone out - he promised. After several more calls with no response I called the owner. He informed me he had terminated the salesman and no one had transferred his number so they could respond to the messages - they all had just gone into the void. He was sorry. The technician finally came out. By now it was too late. The grass was dying. Brown spots everywhere. Thousands of dollars of sod - good looking, healthy sod we gave to this man to care for was dying all around us. He looked at me, "What the h*** happened?" he asked. "You did," I responded. I complained to the owner again. He came out and was amazed that the incredible yard was no more. He told me we had to act fast. He sent someone out to test the grass to see if we could determine what was causing it to die. He told me they would mail us each a copy of the report so I knew it wasn't tampered with. He assured me he would be on top of it.
came. No report. No
doing special efforts to save the sod. The grass continued to die. I contacted the owner. He told me he would send someone to hand pull the weeds. The technician came. He sprayed most of the by now 10 inch weeds growing in my yard, but the ones in the gardens weren't hit at all. None were hand pulled. The chemicals used weren't strong enough to
the weeds he did spray and he certainly couldn't bring back the sod they let die. I was disgusted and on
24th I stopped by the office. The same lady was running the office. Joy. She had the report from the company - it was our fault our grass died and the weeds overtook it. We had over watered. (I didn't even turn the water on to the sprinkler system until we started getting brown in it. I have water to bills to support this.) But, further more, all I have done since I have become a customer is complain so the lady at the office tells me. I sent an email with pictures of my dead sod filled with weeds growing taller than 12 inches and several more of the tall weeds in my beds to the owner of the company. He sent me a reply telling me I saw his technician - his technician told him - come to my house so he knows the tech pulled the weeds. I wonder where he thinks I got the weeds in the pictures from - the neighbors house and replanted them just to p*** him off. Nope - cause the neighbor has a yard company that actually does what they get paid to do. As far as the grass situation - my dead sod he was paid to care for - he'll over seed it in the fall at a discount. Stay away from this company at all costs.

How to find the right landscaper

There are several things to look for when hiring someone to work in your landscape.

Landscaping

Landscaping your property adds beauty, value and curb appeal. Start with a clear plan of what you hope to achieve, then decide if want to do it yourself or hire a professional.

Picking plants and shrubs for your lawn's landscape isn't as easy as choosing what looks best or has the most colorful blooms.

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to have a lush lawn without having to water or mow the grass?

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.

JR was great. He prepared the garden area and when I found it too difficult to do the planting myself he came back the next day and planted for me. He also did some extras that he saw needed to be done like edging the lawn and trimming a tree in front without being asked and without additional charge. He also shared very useful information about what to plant where and how to take care of the new plants. I would certainly recommend

did an outstanding job of designing our front yard. She was easy to work with and worked hard to please us.

was very honest and fair priced for the work. We had 3 other contractors provide bids and he was in the middle and we negotiated ways to reduce the cost through better design planning that he suggested. He gave us the schedule of what was to be done and when he would start and finish and he held to it within a day which was due to heavy rain. They did a great job at preserving the shrubs and flowers that had to be temporarily relocated for the work to begin and he replanted them and cleaned up and reseeded the grass and mulched our garden after the wall and patio were finished. I am going to have him come back to replace our front sidewalk as soon as we can get that plan in our budget!!
