    Yes the mulch and the edging were perfect when I was done with the job took the pics two days later they must have walked in it and messed it up watering the plants.

    I like your use of texture and color. I do recommend that you make your mulch bed curves more free flowing with longer sweeps, this will make mowing much easier and it will look more natural.

    I think you planted the Chamaecyparis too close together, and you could have used more lirope in that area, but all and all nice job.

    Looks pretty good but dude whats up with those edges? Next time try making more natural sweeping curves vs. those abrupt ones. And clean up those edges, thats not from guys walking over it, its just not done very well, sorry but hope this might help at some point.

    Thanks, this was my third design ever my boss gave me the reins on this job and was very impressed i did the design and the installation on my own. Its nice to finally be able to show what I can do. We are not going to sod the yard the homeowner is doing it himself, trying to save some money i guess, but he wants me now to design the rest of his house for him which if you can see from the pictures is a million dollar log home. And as for the mower i really like it, this is my first ztr ive used before that I use a great dane surfer and wb's. It has the 23hp kawasaki and is very smooth cutting no bogging or nothing
