Not so beautiful

I've seen beautiful edible gardens. Not at all here. This one violates every 'rule' of attractive landscaping. Plants in straight rows, an uneven 'hedge' clear to the street separating him from his neighbor's property, nowhere to walk or sit, no symetry or flow. The only way this is attractive is if you're hungry. It's an eyesore that's probably killing the resale of his neighbors' properties by 10-20% - tens of thousands in value for each house so he can save a few hundred bucks on produce. Plus it's probably attracting all sorts of nuisance wildlife to the area.

I wonder how he'll feel when the only people willing to buy a home next to him use their yards as a auto repair shop, think they live in a nightclub, or run a flop house.
