    One side has Hostas and a forsythia. The other side has a forsythia, siprea, a burning bush, a 'Popcorn' doublefile viburnum.I planted Irises in the narrow side of the steps. The plants look a little sad as they were just planted today. I am hoping they will perk up soon.

    Beautiful transformation! A lot of backbreaking work, but well worth it. You must be ecstatic. :stew1:

    You managed all that in just two weeks!! :eek: Fantastic what a lovely area you've created. The whole of the space seems so much larger now and is a real feature. Congratulations. :smt041 :smt041 I'll look forward to seeing more photographs as the plants mature.

    Thank you all!! A disclaimer though - we haven't done this by yourself. :oops:
    We hired someone to do it for us. That's why the quick turn around.
