lol ok well thanks! Why is it a mistake planting so close to the house? Down here this is how it is done. I can understand if we were not planning on maintaining them then they might be too close to the house.

That was my thoughts, if you dont plant close to the house on any of our lots up here it means you aren't getting any plantings. Some ppl are just negative.

Do you know why the grass was in such bad shape to begin with? It looks as if the area is very shady.

all the proximate free standing trees belong in the bed, and it looks like 2.5 yards more of mulch will do it.

real nice work otherwise
you got alot to be proud of !

2.5 more yards!! I only used 4 yards to do the whole bed! Thanks for the compliments.

Looks good,

I too would have incorporated the trees into the beds, but I would have surrounded them in river rounds instead of mulch kind of like a dry creek bed look.

Jeff I ment no insult with my post,where I am we try to avoid planting large things close to the house such as the three Hollies you have planted there by the back porch.reasons being #1-safety,people who might be breaking into the home can easily be hidden from others seeing them by hiding behind the bushes
#2-Fire danger shrubs close to the house act as fire ladders
#3-leaves get in rain gutters
#4-blocks view to outside garden areas
#5-harder to maintain,because of tool use close to windows and screens,and can't get all the way around them if too close. no meaness intended it just is not done very much anymore it is old school because of the look it gives when shrubs mature.Other than that the job looks fine.

A nice job, you seem to have gone with plants that suit the home.

Try to offer the client a regular services & keep those trees near the shadehouse pruned the same size as they are.
