    here's a customer that i have for lawn cutting, each time i go at his house im tempted to make this all nice and clean....anyway if you guys have suggestion/opinions on what i can do of course from the main trimming,mulch and doing a perimeter where the bed starts.im planing of offering the customer to this clean up
    im seeing here some Rhus either glabra or typhina,some juniperus and some what looks like prunus cerasifera..

    the prunus seems like its dying in the corner,and on the side of the property...i dunno what would be causing this...

    anyway here;s pics

    Tear the house down might give it some curb appeal.

    ;) WOW

    Maybe its a Canadian thing, but I have never seen siding on an angle like that...

    It would be easier, and probably cheaper to just start over...

    Honestly, Id be hesitant to even cut grass on a home that looked that bad, as the the rest of the landscape and home appearance would not be something I'd want my company to associated with maintaining...But then again. Money talks...
