Default How is my design concept?

I just drew up my first design project for one of my customers. Looking for some feedback here.

That looks pretty cool.

The lavender will look great against the colour of the house. Adding something with white flowers (maybe gardenia ** depends on your climate, but they smell awesome) could be a nice way to bring in another colour.

Very nice! very exciting! you are off to a great start greenscaper, I am excited for your development in this area mainly because design is a favorite part of my service base.

Do you feel this process comes natural to you?

yes and no.. i grew up always being better at creative things. i originally went to school for architecture but dropped out, went back to school again for graphic design and dropped out again ha.

the part that doesn't come so natural is my knowledge of plants and my general experience with landscape design, which is none besides this here drawing. i can't look at a space and say "ah yes, so and so would look great here." but i mean i've always been good with design and color so that part is a lot more natural.

Nice drawing! looks like it took you an hour! haha

4K sounds like a good price. One thing I thought of is make a spot in their for annuals and then offer them 1 year of free annuals (at least where I live, we do pansies for winter, begonias for summer, and mums for fall) then maybe they will continue to have to put them in....just a thought. Anyway, nice design, I really like it!
