Since empty concrete building fronts are so much duller than beautiful frontscapings, I took it on to present some ideas to my buildingmates. They approved and I've now been tasked with following through and actually getting plants that will be beautiful with minimal upkeep on our part. The plant store looked at me like, 'You want plants, yet you don't want to care for them?'. I thought that was pretty normal in the urban world. I'll be finalizing the frontscaping with them in the next week or so.
Anyway, see my boring building below, and the other pretty buildings in the neighborhood.
