I decided I would do a little guerrilla gardening and spruce up the area. There were sprinklers installed, so I figured things would grow. I started by applying a liberal dose of herbicide to all the weeds. Here's what it looked like a couple weeks later:
I then cleared all the dead weeds, rocks and random trash and spaded the soil to soften things up. I cleverly chose to do this on the hottest day of the year.
I found a cable box! I smoothed things down and spread grass seed.
And it started to grow! As you can imagine, I was very pleased by how many idiots walked and rode on the soft soil.
And it grew some more.
And here's what it looks like now. I just sprayed the weeds you can see, so they should be dead soon.
I encourage all of my readers to not only beautify your own homes, but also your community. You will be glad you did. And you might even find a cable box.
