    Hey guys and gals. Here are the before and after pics of a job we just finished up this weekend. One of my realtor contacts called me and said that they had complaints from people that they could not see the house because of the yard. He asked me to get with the home owner and see what we could do to help with some curb appeal. Tell me what you think. By the way. The customer was only willing to let us replant what was in the yard. They would not pay for any new plants since they were selling the house. oh well, enjoy.

    Thanks,

    John B.

    All i can hope for them is a fast sell. They need out of the home and a fast sell would let the realtor know that what I did made a big impact and that would def. bring on more business

    While the original beds were very over crowded, now they look horribly sparse :(

    I also think the layout is pretty poor (but thats not your fault).

    Overall, I think the house looks worse. A good mulch job would probably make it look better than the original.

    Although I agree it looks a bit sparse if you really think it looks worse you ought to go buy some spectacles..............
