    -clean out all beds
    -build beds around all free standing trees
    -use topsoil as needed
    -install weed barrier
    -1 foot lacing of pink star rock around all beds and some other decorative places
    -mulch everywhere else
    -install plantings as a surprise to the client around mailbox wingwalls (the pictures of the wingwalls are in the landscaping forum under "help me out with some plantings")

    i know i have my work cut out for me. its only my sister a friend of ours and i who are doing the work. my dad is helping me out with some of the design. we have till sat the 7th to complete the work. the worst part is that because i am only 17 with no portfolio to show to prospective clientel i underbid the job in order to be able to do this in the future. Also the customer is one of the best masons in the area. So im hoping word of mouth will help me out
