    the plants are nice. good design.
    but what's up with the edging? it takes away from your plantings.

    i think it would have looked better just on a nice amoeba shaped berm, with a natural edge.
    nice layout though. are they going to have you mulch it? or gravel?

    Personally, I would add some mulch, but other then that it looks good.

    i hope it wasn't much....people like you kill the market for real landscapers...anyone can plant plants and put mulch down.

    Cheap shot. Everybody starts somewhere. I would'nt think a small job like that would be a threat to a "real landscaper"

    you are absolutely right he is not a threat.....never said he was a threat...i said he kills the market because he has no clue what they're doing.
