I think you should have used plants with a little more height in some areas like the corners. I know it’s hard because there are so many low windows but I think it looks very small and the plants are too uniform.

I also understand planting as many trees as you can to make as much money as you can but from the looks of it those trees just look too close.

The hollies and boxwoods were downsized to cut back on cost to meet the budget. As for the Pears the client was dead set on what he wanted so thats what was planted.

That isn't 10 feet from the driveway. You better make sure they're deep root feed every year, or there is going to be problems with the the driveway. We do here, but we have clay/ gumpo soil.

That is a great idea! Promote vigrous root growth so the roots tear up the driveway. What kind of pears are you planting that tear up asphalt? Since when do they have invasive root systems?
