I think this will come across wrong. All I see is empty beds with all straight lines. It looks like you did a good job leveling and laying sod, but it really looks the same, but with grass and more defined beds. I feel it would have looked much better to give the beds a more natural, flowing look rather than rigid and bland. Are you going to be installing any plant material? If you did just what the HO wanted and they are happy, disregard this.

Yeah, this is what the homeowner wanted. I recommended plants but they had a fixed budget.
