    A local landscaper installed this as I was working on one across the street.I would have refused to do this if it is what my client wanted..it is just BAD landscaping and I have a reputation to uphold..apparently this guy does not..and you can see why.

    WTF is that? :dizzy: Looks like someone had some liners that needed to be bumped up and decided to just plant them instead.

    It has potential sheshovel. Look at all that bed space! At least they put in a decent looking wall minus the weeds and minus it being lopsided.

    It has possibilities, for a real landscaping company to redo it.And what does it say about a customer,if that pos project met expectations.I have seen better homeowner, do it themselves work then that.
