    other than the trash and/or leaves in the second pic, the lack of edging along the driveway in the third pic, all the bare spots in the forth pic, and the weeds in the sidewalk cracks in the last one, it looks average.

    Edging along blacktopped driveways is not necesarily a good idea, there is seldom a clean edge to be had.

    If you're just starting out I'd say you have a good start.
    Two things to be succesful, Quality and customer service...........
    Oh ya, did I mention customer service and quality?

    Not Bad Man. The grass to me looks a little too short, what hight were you using when you cut it? I usually use a 3" height. Good Though! Keep it up! Try not doing criss crossed lines though, I found it looks better just cutting it one way.
