First before and after
You did a nice job but it looks plain and all of the plants are the same.. No real focal point used and no color to accent the house...
Looks good but too simple for me.. Nice work anyway
The over feature of the house is 100% better, some tall plants for a focal point would have been better, but once again the house looks way better
OK well anyhow let me be plain, customer got exactly what he wanted. If the customer is happy then I guess I have to be too. There are 352 houses in this development and I was told to do what the house owner wanted for for a price of $500 on each one, so now that I have cleared that up I will leave each of you to add all that up. Next time I will just throw a bird bath in the next yard and post the pics and see if that a good focal point for u. By the way he is still undecided on the other plants he wants to use. Yea i guess all that money is too simple too but oh well.
You cut the grass
Put those little plants and mulch... nice
Wow I can't wait for the 257th version of this! LOL $500 dollars won't get you very far....what kind of development is this? I would definitely say that this is a step up from the trailer house you did last time. Anyway great work for what you got paid. $500 dollars...you get what you pay for.
wow, i need a raise
nice work nc
Not sure if I would have paid that much, but liriope is good for accent but I would have insisted on a variety of shrubs or something.. Focal point is important, but if that is what they paid for and wanted...not sure if I would have posted those on here without assuming some ribbing was going to be in order..
Break up the space by using the structure of the house as a guide. Tall spaces in the background need taller plants. Entrance ways and some window areas will focus attention on that point of view so you contrast plants from higher to lower in height and even with color to bring a focal point to whatever area you are trying to bring out.
