Front-yard garden criminals

Wow! I know my area has some codes as to what I can and can’t do with my front yard. This one they have is interesting. There is a family in Canada that has gone green with living. They are growing their own food. They made a garden out of their front yard. The problem is this:Where they live it’s reported that only 30% can be for a vegetable garden. I hope they ask for the definition of what is a¬†vegetable since there are several.

Here is a link to their website.

Also July 22nd between 10am and noon they are having a “bed in” to protest this rule.

Note I’m really not sure after seeing the full grown plants it kind does look like an eye sore but then again part of me sees it as nice clean living and living green. You know everything is pushing us to live greener which in turn means more free. So this is a price that is to be paid.

I guess people just have to learn what the new beauty is when living greener.

Tree Removal Moan

Tree Removal. I kind of liked the tree but it had to go. It had the neighbors telephone line in it. So had that removed and another tree removed and a tree capped.

The whole process was a pain. I called five, yes five, diffrent places to come out and give me a quote. I had two¬†that never showed. One that wouldn’t meet with me he showed up and left a written estimate. Two that showed up for me to show exactly what I wanted and they gave me a quote.

The one that left me a written estimate. Of course he got what I wanted wrong on, since I had to tell the person on the phone, not him directly, what I wanted and he came buy and figured out on his own what he thinks I wanted done.

The two that showed up. The first of the two was a bit strange and he gave me a quote. The second of them showed up and was very business like and quoted everything out. The tree cut down cost, the remove cost, the cost if I wanted the roots ground up (which he recomended not to since it was holding up the hill and told me to let it go until the ground plants took in so the hill side didn’t wash away.) so I went with this guy.

They came and in about 45 minutes were done. Total of 2 tree removed and one tree capped.

The first few pictures show how it looked before, then after the cutting and the last few are how the area looks now since I built up the wall on the back hill side.
