    Here is a before pic of this property we just finished. The thing that was new to us is they did not want any grass at all in the front yard. So we went brainstorming and this is what we came up with........

    I think it looks great and I take it homeowner likes it. I get asked the same ? 1-2 times a yr. They don't want to mow or do any upkeep. I usually tell them concrete and be on my way. But now I was wondering is there any thing that would be maintenance free for say 5-7 yrs?

    Plenty of groundcover in there. 20 bar harbor junipers were installed.

    Looks good. Two color mulches, and stone or gravel together always looks nice. Especially when you are creative with them. :cool:
