    LOL, I looked at the first picture and thought wow this looks pretty good I will really be impressed if he can make it look better, hahaha.

    Nice work, I like the flagstone into the lawn detail, just that extra touch of professionalism. (I think that's a word)

    You mean you didn't drown the yard in landscape gravel?!?!?!??

    Nice use of perennials and boulders. I like the pocket of green, it adds a nice texture.

    Thanks guys. I could of hammered in the rock, but why? I laugh at the company that does this beautiful hardscape only to place in a few shrubs here and there. I know we are in an era where budgets drive alot of the project but I will educated the clients and push for softscapes as well.

    Firefly, you have not seen nothing yet, there is more to come!

    My main objective with these posts is not to brag but to help others with ideas and show what we as landscape architects should be doing rather than just a shrub here shrub there with a grass here and there.......

    I cringe a lot when people make huge rock areas. I agree, some green lawn can really help things.

    Here is my challenge to you - how can someone advance their design capabilities in a sorta self study method?
