This is what we have named people who have the uncontrolable need to constantly plant things. I have a client, a wonderful fella, really. Everytime I go there he has something else planted, a tree, a shrub a flower. And, they all have little or no mulch ring protection around them. He asked me last week about his plant placement. And, I gave him a few pointers and then told him the only ones that really bothered me were things planted so close to fixed objects I could not get my mower in there or ones planted in the middle "V" part of a ditch or ravene, because once again I couldn't get my mower in there and it caused a lot more line trimming. I come back this week and there were FOUR, count them one two three four more tiny trees planted in the "V" part of the ravine. I could have spit. He is a very nice man and I am sure what I said the previous week went in one ear and out the other. He was just making polite conversation for the sake of talking. But, ohhh how frustrating it can be.
