    Looks good....

    curious though, any chance of it washing away with rain? Can't tell from the pic if it's steep enough....

    oops, nevermind, looked again and realized the old mulch is still sitting in place.

    Ya, it could use a few more small shrubs, maybe even some small trees. That was my first thought it you got a huge flood there goes all the mulch. Looks good though overall.

    Looks good, why not bring the edge back a little to make it straighter?

    they probably don't want trees because they will block the view

    Even if the last company did the edge I would have redone it just so I didn't have people thinking it was something I did. But oh well.

    What did you need to mark the utility stuff for or was that someone else?

    Reminds me of this super steep bank we did once where I kept falling down the slope while we were trying to do it and eventually had to hold a rope while working on it.

    Am I the only one that thinks that expanse of mulch looks like crap? With that hill I'd plant some nice groundcover. I think some people just like to look at mulch.
