The Cost of a Garden

Our new home is quite nice inside, but fairly barren outside.
The builder generously seeded the outside dirt with little effect. We had him re-seed it and have begun aggressive watering. Clumps of grass are beginning to emerge.

Despite the grass our lawn is quite boring.

We invited a landscaper to look our property over. We're interested in adding several trees for shade, perhaps a fountain and several flower beds. His proposal will arrive by Thursday.

I have a nasty feeling it will cost about $4k - $7k. I'd like to spend no more than $3k. Would you plant a nice garden?

He asserts that we'll get our money back on the sale of the property. I'm very skeptical. What do you think?
