    I agree with Marc. Landscaping work should "fit" the property. Some the things mentioned seem over the top.

    i know what you're saying, but many people dont have green thumbs or like doing the work like us... i'm worried some people will be intimidated by my landscape... its abitch to weed whack (sooo many beds & paths) its got a small fish pond and many perennial beds with many diff plants that honestly, can be too much for me to handle after taking care of my clients all week.

    the mulch job (w/ edging) alone is something i'd charge about $1200 for. mowing is $45/wk....
