    I have a customer that I currently just do the lawn maintance on. They want me to install a flower bed in one corner of the backyard and add some big landscaping stone on a sloped area in order to tier it and make a flower bed out of it. This will be my first foray into landscaping. Can anyone give me some advise on how to go about it. Thanks

    and plant.You will learn the rest as you go
