    A small install we did today. Did a bunch of other work, in the back yard that ate up the rest of the day.

    Plants are as Follows:
    Green Velvet Boxwood (3)
    Zebra Miscanthus Grass (2)
    Overdam Reed Grass (4)
    Compact Burning Bush (1)
    Dwarf Korean Lilac (1)

    Exciting...No....... Functional..... For the most part.Grasses will need to be divided eventualy. Burning bush should get enough sun, Customer claims she is going to get the tree removed..we will see.

    Not too bad, looks like that edge could use a little work though IMO. Oh well I'm not perfect at that bed edging yet either

    I saved a few, I dont really have anywhere to put them.

    Customer didnt like how when they died down in the winter, It looked so bare.

    The new bed was a bit smaller than the old one. I do have a turfco bed edger that we used. The edge was made out of fresh topsoil so it was just falling apart after we cut it with the edger.
