Get your permit at 14, drive with an adult for 3 or 6 months(depends if you took drives ed or not), then get your restricted after those 3 or 6 months and you can drive from 5 in the morning to 10 at night or something like that. Then you get your license at 16!

Brick edging Fail!

Need to learn how to mortar those in and get the top of the brick just a shade over sod height.

Need to work on your curves. You've got too many in that one line.

Also need to keep your brick level consistent.

Don't use Pea Gravel in landscape beds. It doesn't stay in place.

Should of made the bed bigger. If that shrub was that big when you cut it, it will that big again someday.

Always use landscape fabric pins with your fabric....

There is no good slope to the grade and water won't run away from the house effectively.

And don't be lazy by setting the bricks on the grade and throwing dirt around them.

Thank you for the input but first off....they did not want sod because they said they were going to plant there own grass.
Also she spray painted the line in which she wanted the bricks to lay, so i did in that line...
The bricks are also level, but not spaced out correctly which makes it appear as if they are not level. I have to go do some more work and i am going to fix it when i get back to it.
I also recommended larger river rock but she was very specific in what she wanted.
I don't know how can you say that i did not use landscape pins, because i did....

But everything i did not mention i agree with and appreciate the advice. I must say though she is very satisfied with what i have done so far. I do plan to go back and fix what you suggested. Like i said i am new to landscaping and appreciate the input.

Thank you
