Be careful with gardens in Oak Park

Check this out!

A family decided to put in a raised box planted veggie garden after the city tore up their lawn to repair a sewer line.
Now they have a Jury trial on July 26th, 2011.

Here is a pic of their home and garden along with some lawn. Someone tell me how this can be unslightly.

In the first place, the City should have repaired the property to it's original shape. She should be citing them !! I just watched that on the news and it's a sad day when they tell you what you can and can not do on your own property. I have a feeling the City will be withdrawing that citation !!

And people wonder why we would prefer to live outside cities, or zoned communities who regulate what and what not you can grow, what color for paint your house and what not. The farther away from that rot I am, the better I like it. But it is even creeping into the country, sad to say.

Yep, many townships are taking it on themselves to regulate the way the yards look. Sad.
