Arnold Hertlog and his wife Huguette have always loved tending their garden in the small Flemish town of Saint Armands, far from Brussels. But the garden hasn't looked like this.In 1998 the couple were told that their home - along with more than hundred neighbouring houses - was sitting on an environmental time bomb. It was discovered that the earth was contaminated with poisonous compounds including arsenic and mercury.
