I think that looks really good. It looks like cost was the main concern for the h/o. What did it end up costing them?

Those are not vents on the house. They are egress widows from the basement. The plastic cover keeps debris and animals out but wont do much to keep a child from falling the 5 feet or so to the bottom.

What a difference!! Very nice work! I like the bed around the tree with the hostas. There should always be a bed around a tree in the middle of a lawn to protect it from string trimmer damage.

I don't know what Home Owners see in those brick edger things ...nothing looks better around a garden then normal edging

I agree. When I first bought my house I pulled up about thousand feet of them. I stacked them at the curb and posted a curb alert on CL. 3 people showed up in 5 minutes and wanted to argue over them. Nothing screams old people like scalloped brick edging except maybe white limestone yards.

they are kind of ugly, but they are effective and cheap.

i like natural edges and steel edging and of course natural stone work

i like that type of edging...very easy to mow and trim around but alot of people don't take care of them and they end up not being lined up properly or falling over and they are too lazy to fix it lol

sorry didn't notice those were windows...alot of older houses around here look the same but they have vents down in those holes lol

I don't know what size the windows have to be to meet code (Those look awfully small), But he calls them egress windows, so that is why they are deep!! I don't think my fat Arse could get out of there from the looks of it!!

I think it looks good, I have to admit I hate the red mulch, it just screams Taco Bell to me. LOL
