    Here is something we did on Sunday....2.5 yards of mulch, and removed the blocks from the front of the home and made a tree ring.....And yessssss, the lawn is trying to stay green even though we have been in a drought and they dont have irrigation....will snap some more pics when after the lawn is cut tomorrow....

    Is it just me or are there way too many bushes in that landscaping? The stuff you did makes a big improvement though.

    Hey you noticed the begonias....last flat they had...LOL....pansey's are already hitting the market.....the level is just a tad off because of the roots.....had to work with what I had, and didn't want to damage the root....and, man way too many shrubs....believe it or not, this is one of the first homes I was mowing.....I have had this account for a long time, first time they let me touch the landscaping.....more work is coming....

    In our area they don't recommend building rings with fill around trees....don't know if that is good.

    I like your bed edge.
    Most lazy landscapers will not take the time too do it.

    Does anyone else hate mainicured shaped shrubs besides me?:)


    Good work again.
    Hope the Tree Nazi's do not see that tree ring.
