Yeah the secret is to not make your mulch look like "Mash Potatoes"

Nice mulch..! Although I'd be worried about it washing out, on a slope like that..

I'd be all about putting in a nice terraced retaining wall..

With all due respect about the edges, any customer who has "landscape light garden" like they do, probably wont appreciate a well defined bed edge.

Hey guys sorry for the laye reply. That is a very nice job on the mulch pics you posted, and for the person that asked about price we did it for 360 which like I said was too cheap. What can I say though? You live and you learn!
