As a homeowner who has spent the last couple of years putting in my yard, I've driven around from time to time to see what the "professionals" do. While I've seen some nice jobs, more times than not, I see a lot of jobs where things are planted with no forethought into what a mess they will become. I'll give you a couple of examples. Island beds are becoming quite popular in my area and its not uncommon to see trees that look small and cute right now, crammed into these small beds. The house across from me was done by a professional and they put 3 birch trees in a bed that should have had maybe 1. Now it looks like a huge bush. Blue Atlas Cedars are another tree that is misused as they look very small "Charlie Brownish". I drove by a home recently that had 3 of these in an island bed that was probably less than 30ft wide. So what happens when those trees grow up? I guess my question is do any of you find yourselves frustrated by some landscapers lack of planning and putting a bad name on the profession?
