    I hope they don’t have to wrap those in plastic wrap occasionally.

    i would guess its a fake. those shrubs look a bit “clone tool” to me.

  3. Katie says:

    Thanks. I needed that!

  4. Sharon says:

    This shrub garden needs attention! I heard Smilin’ Bob is looking for work.

  5. Really. Planting Italian cypresses so close to the foundation is asking for trouble. Oh? That’s not what you’re all talking about?

    Has anyone checked on where this photo was taken? This is NOT a photo of the headquarters of Pfizer, Inc, the manufacturer of Viagra.

    Ironically, the Pfizer HQ (in Groton, CT) engaged some very creative and environmentally sensitive landscape professionals to design the attractively planted areas of their campus.

    Funny as the photo may be– it’s not Pfizer.

    … thanks to a large and generous endowment…

    Must have taken a long time to erect that building…

    That has to be one of the dreariest cityscapes I have seen, and that is saying something.

    Has to be a brothel in Nevada doesn’t it?

  11. Thanks for the belly laugh.

  12. Jo Ann says:

    Notice how empty the parking lot is? Is it possible renters were just a little put off by the first impression one gets …hmm?

    Size does matter!

  14. It is a bit hard to tell without the full context of the buildings setting, but what they were thinking is the typical, “I must park my car as close to the door as possible so I do not have to walk one step further than my fat rear can waddle.” Lord that is a lot of asphalt right up to the building.

  15. “I didn’t think they would get that big!”

  16. Barbara says:

    LOL. Can you imagine?

    This was forwarded via an employee of a law firm.

    No clue where.

    Lesson learned: step back and take a fresh look as you design!

  17. Old Kim says:

    Too much cement and phallic symbols. Looks like a good place for anyone into gay man sex. Females not allowed.

  18. Brandon says:

    Woah! Any idea where the photo was taken?

  19. Deirdre says:

    Somebody wasn’t looking at the big picture.

  20. Eek. I hope no landscape architect came up with that design!

  21. Michele Owens says:

    Are any of those apartments available?
