    Simple project, created the bed next to driveway, put in some more plants that the customer wanted in the the bed by the house, and mulched.

    Nice improvement, just be careful plowing this winter:)
    Did you plant infront of the foundation on the left side of the front stairs? It looks like the same in one of the closer pictures.

    Is that string tied to the shovel thats on the ground?

    LOL, yes the string is attached to the shovel, i realized i forgot the stakes and wasn't worth going back........gotta make due with what you have.

    On the left of the stairs, she had bought a TON of plants to stick in there, she had no idea and said she didn't even read the tag. We picked the ones that would work the best and just did a few eynonomous' (sp) in the bed so she'd be happy!!

    As far as plowing, when i plow that place, the snow goes to the other side so it's no big deal!

    Not too bad, I suppose, besides I personally hate straight bed lines. If she picked the plants then nothing to say about that. But I will anyway, I would have chosen a few vertical plantings to go with those low ones.
    Now, my question is... what is going to keep that grass out of those new beds?

    Mike, i've tried to do beds like that b4 but got so damn frustrated. The main problem was that i couldnt keep the bed level when digging. Also, why didn't you rent a sod cutter to speed things up? The quality of your work is amazing! -Mitch-
