When we were buying our house we were told that the builder "always finishes off his developments really well". People we have spoken to say that they were shown a previous urbanisation he had completed with planted areas etc which made it very attractive.
Since that hasn't happened here, one resident has taken it upon himself to develop his own planted area. Rather than look at a piece of scrubby soil overgrown with weeds "Norfolk Dave" has created his own little garden across the road from his house.
It won't take long for those plants to establish and cover the area well giving him a very pleasant outlook from his casa.
