    Okay its late and I can't sleep. But lets start a kind of game. Given the location, diemenisons, etc. What would you plant/landscape in that area? and why?

    Location: Front enterance for a commerical park, new development.

    Size: 10ft x 50ft

    Objects: 3 flag polls and a sign.

    Note this isn't a real bid, just a kind of game.
