Before the Take: Over several decades the homeowners cultivated a beautiful front yard garden, with mature trees, shrubs, perennials, and bulbs.
After the Take: Almost the entire front yard is dug up to install a sanitary sewer line 20 feet deep across the property. The homeowner’s gardens, including mature trees, shrubs, and flower beds, were removed and destroyed.
