It has more trees and grass then North American suburbs (at the same stage) build where a forest used to be.

This is how the gardening of all houses should look like...then you could call it a palm....never mind....

They should also put some palm trees on the beaches itself, so that the symetry of the fonds is broken...

just my 5 cents...

Actually that was a standard option afaik.

I agree with you but as Dubaiflo said give it time and it will definitely look like this, Im sure by next time this year the fronds and the entire island will be alot more green as properties will be handed over and owners will surely put in more landscape and Nakheel will also add landscaping

I wonder how does people who lives in Palm Jumeirah knows which houses are their? Almost all houses looks much similar... I remember when I lived in southern California, my neighborhood has exactly same looking houses... I couldn't find my house when I was young... I had to count houses to find my house. About two years later, my parents had to install palm trees front of the house while the rest of homes doesn't have palm trees which made it much easier to find my house there. I am sure many people who lives on that island having similiar situation as I had in the past.

I know what you meant, I had the same problem when I was trying to find a friend's house in Santa Rosa, CA. The house looks similar....also my uncle's house in Rio Vista, CA also. The house looks similar, too! The good thing my Uncle home isn't that hard to find cuz I can see the number of the house outside next to the garage door that lights up at night.

Sounds like some of you never lived in suburbs or been to the suburbs before in your lifetime.

they have to build A LOT of trees. this is because the sand, although has been superformed, is still mildly unstable. the trees will help to stabilize sands currently there

Hope the trees not dead. For similar houses, I think that's why we have house number.

This may have been asked before, but can someone explain to me why the palm trees are wrapped in canvas/cloth? Is it so that the leaves grow in a particular direction? Or is that just how they've been delivered and the cloth is yet to be cut off? Thanks!

Yes, they are delivered like that, and after planting them they still keep them wrapped for a week or two, propably till the branches regain the strength and are not blowned away by the winds.
