    I subbed out the concrete work to father in law, and irrigation to my dad. Other then that, the whole job is my design and everything. First big job done through my business....let me know what you think!

    Not much room for the yews to take root and grow, your lines are choppy a bit, I don't like the curbing, walkway is a bit low in comparison to the lawn. I don't believe you've used poly sand. Other than that for a first job, pretty good. Now its hard to comment on how you did your job, because we don't see any equipment there, saws, compactors excavators etc. Keep up the good work.

    Poist 2 pic 4= the left side is straight while the right side is choppy. Run some stringlines if you have to. Also make the curve in the front look better. 1/2 inch pvc can make a difference if you use it on the outside and places your pavers against that to make curves.
