I have to say I am not a fan of the pine straw but on that yard i think it looks good and I also like how you made the beds with gradual turns and curves so you can still get a mower in without having to trim a lot.

As I said it looks nice but one question should the beds be cut low so the pine straw sits level with the grass so it is easier to cut. Just asking I have never used pine straw we use mulch.

shrubs look good but the pine straw looks weird. It looks like there is way too much pine straw because it looks really high, but I've never done pine straw so I could be wrong

Your work looks great but those pine needles around the perimeter of a wooden structure is a fire hazard just waiting to happen.
