A group of neighbors who were upset about a patch of grass on their property that looked like a ‘jungle’ now say they still don’t like it even though it’s been mowed.

In July, local residents complained about a small patch of grassland designated for wildflowers that had not yet established seeds.

Martyn Wood, 66, told Suffolk News it was looking “worse than a jungle”.

But three months later, he says the area is still an eyesore.

“It looks like a complete mess, which doesn’t fit in with a housing development,” he told the newspaper, adding that “nobody seems to be listening”.

He posed with other residents of Merchant Avenue in Marham Park, Bury St Edmunds, for a photo looking dejected in front of the lawn, which featured some wildflowers.

A sign next to it says it has been planted with wildflowers to help bees, butterflies and birds – whose populations are declining due to habitat loss.

Lead developer Countryside defended the landscaping, saying: “Although it is not currently in season, the wildflower area is now increasing and the turf is compacting well.

“Maintenance plans are in place for the coming months, including some trimming of the sod to allow regrowth and planting of some replacement shrubs.

“A landscape maintenance company was commissioned with this work.”

West Suffolk Council is set to take control of the area in 2023 – so hopefully Martyn will be happier with the service by then.
