Here is a project my wife and i did recently. dont have a "before" pic (erased them by accident ), but it had a lot of overgrown, low grown evergreens, roses, and marble stones/chips....i hated taking the chips out. most of the work was in labor. not big deal, but i really like how it turned out. did it in between cutting grass, the vegetable garden (different thread) and a full time job.
