Here is a project i would like help on. The person just had this deck put on and would like me to do a landscape. the one side he would like to keep that little bush. There will be steps comming off that side and the front center. The other side faces a nother house and he would like another Rose of Sharron there. He also would like a Rhode and a jap red maple. I like to use gold mops also. Home owner wants yews on either side of the stairs that will be on the front of the porch. Any other help would be great. Like what to put in for some brilliant color. I am in western NY so you know. Also as you would know i would have to raise the beds some too. Can i just pour topsoil over the turf? Or do i have to rent a sod cutter and strip the part infront and on the sides of the deck?
