    From the picture the bushes appear to be some variety of boxwood.

    Indeed, that is an ordinary boxwood. They’re pretty ugly in this application.

    Jeesh, why don’t you give them a little time to grow before you call them ugly.

    Was this landscaping the cause of all the dogs in the neighborhood getting sick?

    This mssg from a neighbor on the MVSNA listserve might explain that:

    “Please be alert if you walk your dog around Museum Apts at 401 K St. Someone there is putting moth balls in the grass in the public right of way. Moth balls are very toxic to dogs and children. If you see someone doing this, snap a photo. “

    Thanks for the heads up on the moth balls. That’s really terrible to hear. I wish they would fix up the grass areas in front of the V and L at City Vista. The grass is very sparse.

    I’m in utter shock to learn about the moth ball incident(s). I couldn’t believe it until I saw it with my own eyes. Please pay close attention as you walk your dogs….most of the moth balls are covered in dirt so they’re not visible – they are the size of small gumballs. Please pay close attention to your doggie’s trail. I noticed a large majority in the grass on K street btwn 4th and 5th street NW.

    Mothballs are also extremely toxic to infants and toddlers. Even causing death. With all the children now in the area, I really hope this person is prosecuted.

    One potential explanation is that perhaps they were put out to deter rats? My mom puts them in her car under the hood because the rats chew the wires up. could be a misguided action and not necessarily malicious. That said anyone walking a dog in the hood should be very attentive…the chicken bones alone are super hazardous.
