BTW - why did they want an island instead of a perimeter planting? If you'd have hugged the fence with the bed it would have made the lawn area much more usable... Just my .02.
Not sure what you mean by hugging the fence. The chain link fence is the neighbors, had to leave some room.
The homeowners have a kitchen window they will sit at. When they look out they will see the Island on the left that is already planted , then the mirror Island on the right by the brown fence.
The middle will have a large butterfly garden Island and behind that will have to large Jap red maples.
