Looks good

Did you level and grade the front or just work with what was there. I'm just wondering about the heavy slope towards the driveway. Is that for drainage or maybe to to vary the landscape or was it just the way is was when you were called in for whatever reason?

May seem like a crazy question, but I live in Florida where everything is pretty close to flat, but lots are supposed to be graded slightly towards a runoff swail. But not that it would be noticeable to the naked eye. We have to work hard to make hills and slopes.

The before pic if you look at the pathway from the front door step to the drive shows the grade we worked with. The after pic distorts how it really looks. I need to take pics from the side standing on the drive to give a better perspective.

The difference in weather alone makes your before and after pic pretty drastic

Looks good.

WOW!

What program did you use to make the rendition? I have a big job on a house very similar only its bigger. Same color, shutters, front layout, for a second I thought it was the house Im doing!!

Its one of my first big planting, landscaping jobs (other then mulch, cutting etc.) I do know what Im doing to an extent, I used to work on a golf course for 7 years. Anyone have any pointers? And again, what program did you use!
