05-20-2008, 10:50 AM
Hey guys, I jus wanted your opininon on some of these pictures. I rarelly have time to come home and get in my own yard as I normally am so tired. My wife asked me about a month ago to plant a quick flower bed with some mulch as she was having a little get together with some friends. She said that I had right at 4 hrs to come up with something. The pictures are a little old but what do you think with only 3hrs of time to do this. I know i need to put some weed kill down as some weeds have started to grow through the mulch and also edge a little more. In one fo the picutues the edge of the bed is a little off as whe I started the bed I ran into a big tree stump so I had make due with what I had at the time as this had to be done quick.

Tell me this, do you feel your own yard can help you advertise your lawn care business?
Is such a landscape project not only good for your yard but good for business as well?

It looks pretty nice. I agree with chuck tho, you should add some flowers or some thing, there isnt a whole lot in there.

sorry for the delay in answering your question. I think that would be a good idea to advertise my own home for my buisness but the problem is I rarely have time to get in my own yard. There is a lot of work to be done in my front yard. I really want to turn up the whold yard and sod it or I may hydro seed it. Just haven't decided yet.

Thanks for the feedback Chuck and Matt. What kind of flowers or what else would you suggest adding in that particular bed.

What region do you live in?
Is it full sun? Shade?
Does it freeze where you live?
All need-to-know's to give you any decent advise here.

We'll I kinda had a feeling you'd be far enough away that I can't really help you here. I'm in south west florida, it's all tropical & subtropical plants here, palm trees, lately alot of wierd imported tropical stuff too. The climatic difference from here to there nixes any advice I could offer as far as plants to install.

I'll install some yearly annuals and see how that looks. Maybe some yellow, red, blue or something...will update some pictures on Monday

I am looking forwards to it! Also, do you have much traffic in front of your house? Could you get a small sign that says this lawn is maintained by .... and then plug your business?

yes, I will do that but I was going to till up my whole front yard and hyrdoseed it. I thought about putting down new sod but I thought the hyrdoseed would take a little better
