    I've been doing some clean up and transplanting on some of last years landscape installs. What a difference a year makes!! Here's a few before shots. We installed a paver walkway before the landscape started.

    Here's a few after shots a year after the landscape went in. The customer wanted an informal Mediterranean feel.

    Walk is to narrow for a 6x9 boarder course. I would of pushed them for 5 feet wide instead of 4. Even at 5 feet wide i'd still use a 6x6 for the boarder.

    The border is actually 6x12 Coventry IV. I think it's too narrow also, it's always bothered me. Looking back I would've done a bunch of things differently. It's holding up well though!

    Hardscape was around $7500 and landscape was between 5 & 6K.

    Here's another job from last year that I was at today doing some more planting. This was a pretty big job. Cobblestone border on the driveway, install driveway planting and corner bed planting, built 600 square foot irregular flagstone walkway with an octagon well in the middle, plus a bunch more. Here's some early project shots from last year. The last one is me in the hole for the well. I'm 6'3", so you get an idea of the depth. The well is decorative, but also serves as drainage for the walkway. Everything pitches to the well and drains in through weep holes. We put a pump setup in the bottom of the well and tied it to their drain box. Works like a charm! Oh yeah, this is supposed to be about the landscaping...sorry!
