    Here's a job I just finished today....LONG story. Just figured I'd post a few pics. Just me on this one- have a ton of pictures. I did not do the paver work but the paver contrator is the guy who led me on to the clients. 2 zones, nice irrigation system... turned out nicely and they are gooing over it.

    Looks really good, big difference there. I'm just starting in on doing landscaping but I'd like to see that in a a few years because i would think it would look too busy when the plants get bigger?!

    Yea, I'm going to be the one maintaining it... I do dense plantings! A lot of the items I actually want to grow together- others, I'll selectively prune to keep them in check. They wanted a "natural" landscape that didn't hide the building (i.e. low). I've already explained to them how the stuff is going to behave in the next few years! Nothing a pair of Felcos can't handle!

    I just did a landscape that they had a locol nursery design, so many plants that would get so big so we ended up pulling a lot of them and making our own design but still tried to go by the plans somewhat but if they wouldn't be kept up then you'd be pulling a few out in a few years.
