While my crew was planting shrubs in a client's back yard, a crew of interlopers showed up to install their own landscape plan in the front. Imagine my dismay!
Using a unique business plan, these landscape pirates did not charge for installing their plan. Instead, they demanded a "donation" to remove their work, and you get to pick the next victim.
The rapscallions responsible turned out to be kids from the Beverly Unitarian Church on a fund drive. My attorney cautioned me against a lawsuit. He told me this meant issues of church and state and I would probably be in litigation for 10 years or more. He advised me to do nothing -- and to avoid mentioning my address.
I wish them luck -- in yards other than my own.
