I like the idea behind the video and some good footage on it but please please slow it down.

I'd personally slow all the footage and text down so the viewer can actually process everything on screen.

You do good work and I'd like to see you showcase it as well as you can.

I'd have to agree with the above. I felt that the text would be cut off before I could finish reading it.
But other than that I liked the look of it.

I just lasted through 5:50 and had to stop the video. I understand what your attempting to present. The length of time for this video is far to long. Having tools scattered all over the job site is common but less than a professional image that I would want to present to paying customers. Still using shovels to plant material is really labor intensive, invest in a two cycle power auger, 1-3 gal bit. You will get done with all of you digging in minutes instead of hours.
My opinion about weed barrier fabric is just about as low as tree wound dressing after cuts have been made.
When the weed seeds germinate on top of the weed barrier fabric, and they will in time what will the customer have to say about the investment to prevent weeds in the first place. Just layer your mulch at 3" and replenish as needed. Using a pre emergent should control any future weed outbreaks, make sure you hirer a LPCO to handle the application for the customer. The planting next to the house left corner appeared to be to close, however the customer will be the final judge in the future. I look forward to future videos from your company, I would suggest 2 to 2 1/2 mins max, mainly due to the fact that most people loose interest after this point in time.

Question : Has a potential or existing client mentioned they saw this video?
Opinion: Good effort, definitely needs to be shorter, around 2 minutes tops
Congradulate me I prolly will get a new trailor

You do good work. Just a couple of things I noticed that you might make a note of. You can take it or leave it.

1. Why put a sky pencil holly and a (looked like a cherry) in front of a window. When those get mature, the customer won't be able to look out their window without seeing shrubs in front of them.

2. When installing lighting, you should really bury the cable 6 inches according to industry standards. Now...we don't always do that, but we do put it in before any fabric goes down so that you don't pick it up with a rake the next time you install mulch. When we put in mulch, we don't use fabric and we bury the cable as much as you can.

3. Spell check before you post your video. Nothing say unprofessional to me more than grammatical errors.

4. Slow down the video and make it shorter.

BTW...I like those Hinoki Cypress on the corners
