Cool! Wouldn't happen to be about seed balls, would it? We could sure use an instructable on that topic...

Actually no, it's about petty theft, vandalism, destruction of public property and of course... transplanting trees. It will make a lot more sense when it is posted.

This happens in the UK as well, but quite genteelly - the gardeners I saw on TV were mainly middle-aged.

even better: drive by at night and throw mint seeds. mint grows like a weed
Our lawn used to be a flowerbed, plus a few herbs. The mint still grows through the grass, which makes the clippings smell quite interesting.
