Lastly pictures after mulch. EDIT: The shade makes it look uneven I realize now. I can assure you it's fine. Sorry about the bad quality, it's very shady back there. The mulch is also wet, so its not quite the same color.

Ok, here the after pictures.

Also the clumps of soil you see in the larger bed are where the stumps are decomposing. Drilled holes, filled with stump-out, mixed with some water, cellophaned wrapped, and some soil on top to keep in the moisture. Will decompose in four to six weeks.

Lastly, one of the boards did shift as we were nailing it in. The client didn't care, said she was extremely happy with all the work we did. But it bugs me.

I think you will. Fall clean-ups, aeration, and plantings are what I am going to do.
