Despite the recent slump in the housing market builders have been busy building houses on the other side of the 15th fairway from me. ($530 to $560K if you are interested). The last step in the construction process is the landscaping. Someone comes in, lays sod, and plants trees and shrubs.
Last night when Champ and I went for our walk there was a tree in front of what Justine and I call the "Green House" (2800 sq ft, tasteful green siding, still on the market for $539K). This morning when Champ and I went for our walk the tree was gone.
