First full landscape job.

They did have a locol nursery design it but the customer and I took some plants out and moved some more around. The flagstone and the the two bigger trees in each corner where done last year by another guy. Give me your opinions!

Flagstone looks good. Needs more plants/flowers. Big bed with very little in it. Now sell them on doing the other side of the walkway and putting in a couple islands.

i would be pleased, right now it looks a little thin but over time it will fill in, i love the height/ depth changes and the colors stone vs mulch well done.

Looks good.

Now that you've "broken through the barrier," continue to trudge on. You'll be amazed at the caliber of jobs you'll eventually be capable of doing..

With the customer having such a large and green lawn, I'd be adding some more color to the beds. It looks great but to much green. I'd try selling some seasonal color installs and add color 2-3 times a year.

Yes it is a little thin now, but what was origionly drawn up was a bunch really close together and they didn't want that because you would be pulling some out when they get big. I read up on most of the plants and spaced them so when they get big it will be filled out in the beds. They are going to plant grass on the other side of walk, eventually i guess because i offered to provide my services to plant grass.

Are those "Stella Dora" Daylillies? If so, those should "Pop" real nice. I agree with Albery though, I'd "Sell Them" on the other side of the walk. I'd bring it out where the curve in the edge of the bed curves out (before the curve back in to the walk.). Bring that out and plant a "Weeping Cherry" (at the corner of the walk), and a line of Korean Boxwoods ("compacta") down and along the walk. Mulch it..... Done Deal, decent coin. Looks great tho, GREAT JOB KID!
