Extremely poor! There is absolutely zero evergreen presence in that bed. Whoever designed that should stick to lawn jockeying. This is why people think landscapers are on the same level as trash men.

Chris,

Why does every house design need evergreen(the way I read your reply)?

If this were my job the only evergreen I would consider would be Spruce, Alberta Spiral or something along that line.

Follow the advise at the end of the first line of your sig.....

tat900- Big improvement, nice, clean and simple. I know that if you had the design choice it would look even better, but, if they request something, then you do the best you can with what you've got! Nice Job

Why all tiny plants? Are they going to grow much bigger?

IMO it would look much better if you blocked the foundation by putting larger plants in the back close to the house than "cascading" with medium sized and then small ones along the edge of the walkway like the size of the ones already planted. It needs more volume and visual depth to the garden. It is all at one level and size at this point with alot of empty space. Some evergreens would look nice because they are more full and look bold.

It will look good in a little while when all of the plants fill out. Only thing I see is the edging could be leveled in a few areas just to clean it up IMO
