    A good designer and business person will listen to the desires of their customers. I resent your good designer comment.

    DVS claims to always have the facts...... whoopsie! Guess he didn't think of South Dakota winds, client wishes (we don't always have to like what they want, but as long as it doesn't compromise the project... who cares), and cost factors are different everywhere.

    I've got hundreds of perennials.

    The beds require mulching every year.

    I had a client 2 years ago for a big hardscape project that had me remove all their mulch in the back yard and replace with river rock. Why you ask? Their dogs are not well trained and dig and roll in the mulch and get it in the pool and in the house and everywhere. They were always dirty. Stone cured that problem. There is a use for it...Although there is no use for it at my house.

    Job looks great, personally think you did NOT overdo the river wash.

    Those who have such comments don't post pics....

    I'm all for constructive criticism, and realize no project is ever perfect for a variety of reasons, including client requests. Usually the client requests are the most subjective and open for the most criticism.
