    Well being that my 1st thread was kind of hijacked :) I will post here. Well today was the day, took me and a buddy 4 hours to complete, the pictures really don't do it justice but you will at least get the idea, I took the pictures before shaping up the edging also. This was my 1st design and install, the client was beyond happy so end result is thats all that really matters. But comments both good and bad are welcome :) *clinches for the blow*

    ford is junk. chevy is over-priced.

    LOL Yeah kind of hard to see how well it all looks without being there, with the older shrubs in the back kind of taking away from it all :) but yes, everything went well, probably could have used a few more mexi patun. but the client gave me a budget to work with and I got the most for what she wanted, she was loving it! :) even bought me an my buddy a 12 pk of hineys for after :) now thats tip i can live with!!!

    Is everyone seeing the same pics as I am? Not being negative, but please describe exactly what you designed and installed. I hope I'm missing something in the pics.

    I agree. I even pulled the B4 and After pics up and put them side by side and there is very little difference othe than a hack job trimming the shrubs. I can't believe this is the "quality" of work you have been carring on about how good you are or that the client thought it was quality work. I know you have only been at this about a month even though you changed your profile to 3 years for some reason, bu not to be mean, but to tell you the blount truth (which you ask for).......this job you did is pretty bad. It is NOTHING like what you eluded you were going to do.
