Before and after

Driveway beds before:

Driveway beds after:
(after three days of digging in clay and hacking
through roots, that is)

I think they look much neater and healthier now (the new mailbox helps too).

The bushes I added are lorepetalum, which have pink blossoms in the spring and will eventually grow 3-5 feet tall. The leaves stay that purple/red color all year. I might add some annuals in front of them yet this year, but for now I'm letting my shoulders rest from all the digging.
