I'm in the process of buying a newly built house and today the builder had work done on the sewer. When I saw the house I couldn't believe that they placed the 3-4" high 'Candy Cane' smack dab in the middle of the front yard. This completely ruins the appearance of the house and I just don't know what to do about it.
If I cover it up with a bush, fake wishing well, or something of that nature then it won't look right since it's in the middle/center of the front yard. If it were off to the side then I think that would potentially work but it's not.
The only thing I can think of is repiping it somewhere else or maybe cutting it down myself (regardless of what any regulations say). If I cut it down and it snows I'll just shovel around it. Is this a big job for a plumber or someone to come out and repipe it to a more discrete location? I'm wondering if I should complain to the builder and have him fix it before it's completely my responsibility.
Here is a picture of it, however I should have taken it at a different angle so you could see my house and the pipe in comparison (the picture only shows my neighbors house).
