    Well I've decided to take tips on a design i'm doing. I'm going to landscape just the front with the pictures I'm providing. The customer has a $5,000 Budget. The only plants she told me she likes are the dwarf cutleaf jap maples. Other than that she likes plants that "move" with the wind... I'm guessing she means like ornamental grasses.

    Thanks i'll appreciate any input from you guys.

    I don't think it's possible to install "decent" landscape beds in those areas with only $5000.
    If I'm guesstimating right,you're looking at around 20 yards of mulch,20 yards of removed debris(at least),and 20 yards of soil to to work in.You're over half way to 5K with that alone.
    Tell her to give you a realistic number to work with.
