    Overall looks great, not sure about the garden curbing though. Nice size job, how long did it take to complete?

    Job looks nice.. definitely a big one. My first issue would be using screenings and not sand. In due time, things will move. You should know better than that. While your cuts and overall geometry look pleasing, I didn't like the choice of Alan block..and trying to make it double sided in one of your photos. Hardscape lighting is a wise choice, however the Integral lights should be placed where they are needed- in line with the walkway, not on the ends. And finally... the large natural stone slabs as steps..not a bad idea but those look rough and un-even for a step/landing. Finish up the plantings. Should look nice when completed.

    CHAMPION, the lights were placed where the customer wanted them, not where I would have placed them myself. The rock steps are better now, in the picture they had just been placed there. If your refering to block in the wall going down by the ramp, that was an already exsiting wall that we didnt build.

    NEVERSATISFIED with everything including ladscaping it well over 60k
