Total tear-out, design, & Installation

Customer had some overgrown and outdated shrubs. Yanked everything, added a wall made of 4" southern buff stone. Installed 1 blue maid holly, 3 blue prince holly, 1 common crape, 3 viburnum, 5 green gem boxwood, and 3 goldmound spirea. My design also called for knock out roses, liriope, astilbe, and hosta, but customer wanted to hold off. Design allows for seasonal planting areas while at the same time offers its own color.

Looks good, but why no type of edge separating the bottom bed from the turf area?

forgot to mention we ripped out his existing lawn (bermuda) added 5 yards of topsoil to fill in low areas, and reseeded with finelawn elite tall fescue. I have never done a lawn renovation with bermuda. I sprayed it twice and then took a sod cutter set to about 3" depth.
Anxious to see what happens next year. Also that is an autumn blaze maple that i forgot to mention we put in. Im not sure if im crazy about the green gem boxwoods look....

I like the first one better, just more pop, both are good though.

Boxwoods look fine now but once they fill in you won't really be able to see your nice wall. Maybe some low juniper or something? Green Gem stay pretty small though right?
