My husband is a landscaper?

My husband worked very hard this weekend. He finally replaced the shrubbery in the front of our house. It looks wonderful! Our house looks so darn cute right now. If I wasn't such a paranoid asshole, I would post a picture of the whole house. But since I am a paranoid asshole, I can only share these cropped images.

The first group of pictures showcase the before and after photos of the right side of our house...

Finally, at the corner of the house, we planted a beautiful Laceleaf Japanese Maple...
Although the flowerbeds look great, they still aren't complete. We want to hire a landscaping company to add cobblestones around the border. Unfortunately, we can't afford that luxury right now. But regardless of the missing stones, I still think it looks fantastic!

Very nice and simple! I love the Japanese Maple!! I really want one myself. My neighbor has one that they don't take care of, and I've seriously thought of snipping a branch and trying to get it to root one for myself...but I haven't, don't worry :).
