long school and longer work

well I've been busy with work and school as usual. The good thing I'm done with school finally! I'll be walking this weekend to get my Bachelors of Science in Engineering. But for the time being this was my headaches during finals.
We picked up the new builder, we did work for our best builder/ customer. Last was a lil landscape the customer wanted, we kept this customer from when we worked with our builder. It helps a lot to talk and work with potential or even future home owners of the homes being sold by builders. It's always better int he long run
As always comments and critiques are always welcomed.

Yes it is customer wanted something to attract butterflies and hummingbirds. If it's not trimmed back it will grow all over quickly. It's a really nice plant,.the customer took a picture already with a few.hummingbirds around it already. I will try to see if I can get it from them.
I'm still working on my plants and learn more and more, I'm currently making an excel that will help me with having the right plants in the right place, also to learn their names hahaha

Bingo. Glad to hear you did your studies on it. I like it a lot as well, will get extremely large though. Doesn't get used enough if you ask me.

That might be too tight of a place to maintain it. I have seen them bet 25' tall and 15-20' around here. Might be different there.
