Precisely. It didn't need much to complement the houses. Plant a row of tail juniper between the houses, with a some elderberry shrubs in the V section dividing the driveway ramps and it's a whole different story therei also quite like the houses themselves which is why the front yard treatment is that much more disappointing…
The thing is, even before lot splitting was a thing, this could be an issue. Homes can always be demolished and replaced and there's plenty of terrible homes that don't add density
How isn't this above the maximum impermeable surface coverage?
a minimum of 30% of the lot needs to be permeable and my guess is the back yard meets that. as for the front, you’re allowed 3.7 metres of concrete per parking stall so that’s probably also complying and the one deciduous tree, one conifer and four shrubs will get tucked into the edges abutting the neighbouring parcels.How isn't this above the maximum impermeable surface coverage?
