can we see the layout. It might help

my concerns would be how hilly / swale filled it is. How tight the beds are. are there any 21" only areas. Do they have the stupid water retention edges that are mandatory here now. (1 ft high rim around the sides and rear of the property that need 21" or worse line trimmed.)

Do they have any similar properties that are already completed that you could visualize?
