To tell you the truth... don't clean them. They need to be ripped out and redone. New border, new plants, new mulch. Propose this to her and see what she says. A clean up will never look as good as a new install, espically in those beds.

Theres a great chance you to make some good money.

I agree those flower beds are a straight MESS and need to be ripped out and re-done! I would not touch that unless they let me take it all out. The reason is that a project that large will never look fresh otherwise.

don't know about it being a total loss. Cut out the dead shrubs, branches, etc. I would increase the width of the beds, the plants could use some more room. Take out the old mulch or what ever that stuff is, re-edge or new border, maybe add alot more annuals. Also that fence could use some clean upand stain.

I would agree, not on the annuals though.
