The way those plants are thrown in there, I don't think anyone could make them look right.

I would have rather seen some of those pruned by hand than sheared into ball shapes with hedge trimmer.

That's a pretty good job.

When shrubs have been neglected for a few years like that, it can take a couple of years for them to fill in properly after a good clean-up.

The client has to be told this, preferably when you do an estimate.

Hopefully you get to return next season and keep up the work.

We meet tommorrow to talk about solutions.

I thought it came out pretty well, considering what there was to work with.
Also, I did alot of hand pruning..
