Kennewick reservist faces threats over landscaping

Lt. Burke Jensen was called five months ago to serve his country in Kuwait. Now he is being told to get an irrigation system and landscaping on his property as soon as possible or face legal action from the Oak Hill Country Estates Homeowners' Association.

"I really don't give a [expletive] where he is or what his problem is," said Chick Edwards, owner and developer of the 47-lot subdivision at the south end of Oak Street in Kennewick.

"This is a contract. I don't like the way his property looks. This clown gets to do what he wants, and I'm as mad as hell," he said.

I think Mr Edwards yard needs some special herbicide treatment. Please don't just use Roundup its for amateurs try something like total vegetation killer. Better yet a nice 5 gallon jug of Lasso herbicide the farm strength version meant to be cut with 1000 gallons of water. Don't worry about the water just pour it on straight.

Legend has it something like that happened when I was in high school and the yard had to be dug up with a backhoe 3 feet down and replaced after re sodding was unsuccessful.
