There where a few areas at my house that were needing to be landscaped so tonight I marked them out and sprayed the grass to kill it. Hoping to have this project done in about a week or two. Its a 1 day job but I just have to find the time to get it done. Customers first. Anyways here are some before pictures of this project.

use fabric to seperate clean washed stone from soil when water is passing through weeds only need about a quarter inch of material to grow in so dont waste your money

your curves for he potential beds dont seem to flow enough, and the 1st two pics the bed seems to be way too narrow to get a nice landscape in. you need room for the plants to mature, as well as enough room to put in some good plants w/o having straight rows of shrubs or w/e.

Make your Lines wider out to give it a better look, and to plant more greens or flowers. But on the other hand I dont see how big the yard is?

I use preen or treflan after I mulch and it seems to help alot. It usually lasts about 3 months, is granular and you can get preen at lowes. It does not kill anything, just keeps seeds from germinating. The only problem I have with paper is we take 20 lb tillers and cultivate the mulch when weeds do get in there. Then just rake out the uprooted weeds and rerake the mulch. Sometimes that keeps you down to just one time a year on mulching. Looking forward to finished pics, but if you are like me at my own house, its last on the list to fix up.
