Landscaping At My House....Pictures

There where a few areas at my house that were needing to be landscaped so tonight I marked them out and sprayed the grass to kill it. Hoping to have this project done in about a week or two. Its a 1 day job but I just have to find the time to get it done. Customers first. Anyways here are some before pictures of this project.

Weed fabric is a joke. Big waste of the green. My last landscape has weed fabric. Customer just had to have it...

your curves for he potential beds dont seem to flow enough, and the 1st two pics the bed seems to be way too narrow to get a nice landscape in. you need room for the plants to mature, as well as enough room to put in some good plants w/o having straight rows of shrubs or w/e.

Make your Lines wider out to give it a better look, and to plant more greens or flowers. But on the other hand I dont see how big the yard is?
