will do. thanks everyone for the comments. i am done with everything except leaf clean up for the season. im also going to pull out some weeds and undesirable growth in other areas. huge missed opportunity on the grass this fall because i was waiting for truegreen to do it. ill be doing it myself going forward.

i notice a redness on the azaleas so it seems they are going through the fall color changing process. ill just cross my fingers and hope for a magnificent spring.

As someone else mentioned, I would be careful with monolithic plantings of the same species going forward (I assume that’s Arborvitae along the property line?). If a few of them die for some reason, it’ll create an odd looking gap that’s impossible to make look right. Doing a mixed species planting is almost always a safer bet.

im hoping to be done with planting anything. only thinking at some point another line of trees to divide front and back yard but that will wait until i decide on what i am doing with back yard as far as pool goes.
