"Have fun with this one...oh how Wilson Yard's lovely landscaped Aldi's socked it to the taxpayers..."
The attached picture shows the landscaping for Wilson Yard Phase I (moving and rebuilding an Aldi grocery store). The cost of the landscape architect was $19,190. Couldn't a fifth grader have done an equal or better job? I did some price checking on what this landscaping would cost:
Knock-out roses $15 each, 50 plants, Total $750
Labor for planting $250
Total Cost $1,000
Total bill for landscaping $19,190
The memories, priceless
