    I generally only do mowing, mulching, trimming, aeratiing, etc., but our church needed some landscaping done badly, so they ask me to design and install it. I only charged for materials and gave my time to the Lord.
    I would like the experts to see what they think, as I have been getting some requests for landscaping lately, before this was done.

    Looks sharp. In the last couple of pictures is that drain tile?

    Good observation. There was a drainage problem on one side and the water ponded, plus the fact that previously the area would backwash onto the driveway under the overhang. So we used the drian tile for two purposes, 1. direct the water away from the area and 2. act as a backstop to keep the mulch from getting on the driveway.
    We can always change it if needed.
