Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Manicured is certainly better than littered.

I think the sameness is the problem, which is partly caused by the homeowners' Association rules forbidding individuality - no real range of choice in styles and colors, types of landscaping, etc.

The minimum asset requirement enforced by the purchase prices is another factor, as you find yourself sealed off from those who are of lower income status. If one truly believes that variety is the spice of life, then subdivision living could prove too bland.

That doesn't mean it wouldn't be a nice respite from too much spice, though, yes?
