Pics of a recent job including edging, mulching, and that earlier planter bed. This landscape was installed by the owner so I can't take a bit of credit for it exept the edging, mulching, and the stone garden wall (which has held up quite nicely over the past few years) but it has so many interesting perrenials, annuals, and your traditional woody plants. I much prefer this type of landscaping vs. the more formal traditional woody plants shaped into cones, cylinders, and balls. That planter should look great once the perennials grow larger and they fill it in with more plantings!

On a side not my back is killing me from all the edging!! All the way around most of the house, that planter, and about 12 tree rings....ouch. The spade edge looks great but man it can be a killer!!

Need to get a long-handled spade! True-Temper used to make one, but I havent seen them anywhere for a while.

The one I have, which is a true temper, has a longer handle than my others. Still gotta bend, kneel, crouch, or whatever to get the edgings out.

It's been real hard to get people to work. Everyone tells me "I want to work with you this year!". That's the last I hear from them.
