This is what our front lawn has looked like since December of 2015:
Back when they originally built the subdivision/estate the builders ran a pipe from the old water pumping house to where a second one would be built. Fast forward x amount of years and the new pump house has been built just down the road from us. So that both pumping houses "talk" to one another electronically, a fibre optic cable has to be fed through the pipe.
That's when they ran into a "situation" and the pipe was bent or something?? So they dig up our front lawn, then promptly fill it back in again, then decide that was a mistake and dig it back out again. There is a big man hole and a smaller manhole under that plywood, plus around a foot drop in grade. They filled it part way up with "stuff," not sure what but it's not soil.
Since then nothing has happened.........absolutely NOTHING! I have asked various people and they seem to think we are still waiting for the fibre optic cable to be fed through the pipe. I have sent the property management an email, waiting to hear back from them.
We have the "big" boss' son moving in opposite us, so I need to watch out for the boss and grab him and see if I can pry some information out of him. The gardeners are back for the season and you know if you have followed the blog for a while what a love/hate relationship I have with them. However, even they can't make the garden look any worse at this point???
Anyone who asks me about the hole in my garden I tell them I have renters in there and I charge a lot! Meanwhile the dogs love going past there as there are chipmunks hiding out in the hole.........as I said this is getting ridiculous....
