Subject: RE: BS: Weapons of mass weed destruction
Some elderly neighbours up the road have had all their lawn taken up by a machine, the drive broken up and a thick plastic membrane extended over the lot. Next, a massive pile of broken slate chips (in a dreary grey) arrived and was spread over the entire area.

I suppose it's completely labour-free, but it looks horribly stark and brutal. The slate isn't even a local stone. And of course, nothing will grow there.

They got the idea from a man further along, who did the same, and who has now proudly placed a tiny pot containing some geraniums right in the middle.
A sop to Cerberus!
