Dead patch of shrubs, letter dog fowl eyesore

Reported via desktop in the Parks/landscapes category anonymously at 13:04, Sun 4 October 2020

Sent to Peterborough City Council less than a minute later. Council ref: 2324383.

This area outside our house (25 Vale Drive, PE78EP) has been getting gradually worse over the years to the point where everything is dead. It is now attracting rubbish and dog waste bags and now that all the shrubs are dead is just overridden with weeds. This is now an eyesore and it is directly in front of our house. I regularly have to pick rubbish from the area but it is getting too much now! Please can this be sorted?
