Luckily the job was right down the street from where I live becasue I forgot my camera and we were just getting set to install the new plants after we ripped out the exisitng shrubs so I have a before picture of the stuff we ripped out and the bed. I always have resizing problems so here is a link to my web shots. Enjoy the pictures and please comment on the job.

No we do not cut the lawn at this house, we just did the landscape install, the customer maintains his own grass, thanks for the comments.

Try grouping the material instead. For instance:
Instead of the pattern of: (best guess of plants from pics) arborvitae, pieris, azalea, spruce, azalea, pieris, arborvitae.
Try something like: aborvitae, 3 pieris toward back, 4 azaleas triangulated around pieris, spruce and loose the other aborvitae and anchor the corner with a nice acer/maple. Then use some of the 'fillers' like the hosta, euyonumus etc. This will help give a more natural look and the house will not look so 'boxy'.
Also try to give the bed some more defenition by not using a straight line, throw some curves at it.
Definitely loose the 2 annuals on stands.

I charged them $850 for the install, Their budget was no more then $1000 so I think it came out nice. I try to stay away from grouping, I think that looks too commercial, most commercial properties do grouping. Thanks for the comments.
