    The tall tree in the center, is it a pine that was already existing? I would definitely have axed it. Take this as constructive criticism, although I don't know what your budget was I would have added more dimension, interesting lines and as stated, color and contrast with different leaf type, size and shape, maybe added trees, bushes and flowers that would give the customer year round interest. There really is a ton of stuff you can research on the web as well as in the library.

    he!l I would have done irrigation and accent lighting add more color and more plants in general. Then a nice water feature would have been great. WTF- were you thinking Bill?
    that you had to stay with in a budget or something?????? :D :D

    The White Pines are too close together.
    When they reach mature growth they will be about 4' wide or better and
    could get as large as 75-100 ft. tall

    Also as mentioned some color could be added, I would suggest some Encore Azalea.They are blooming now and throughout the summer.They come in a assortment of colors.

    Very nice layout,looks great.
