    I see that questions about pruning are being moved over to the Landscape forum. Sean would there be enough interest to support a forum for just pruning and landscape gardening issues. I do not see in any of the forum descriptions that pruning is addressed specifcally.

    You make a good point....technically the landscape forum is for construction and design, etc... pruning is a maintenance task....Maybe we should create a "Maintenance & Renovation Forum"....dedicated to tasks such as bed maintenance, pruning, mulching, etc.... I don't know.

    What does everyone else think?

    "Maintenance & Renovation Forum" sounds good to me!

    Usually, when someone suggests a new forum, I disagree, saying we have enough. This time, I think it's a good idea.

    How about a sub-category of the landscape forum .... like the employment sub-forum within the networking forum.

    Personally I do not care where or how it ia addressed, only that it would be visible to new and old members alike. If I had my way I would make it a pruning forum or landcape maintenance forum that included other aspects such as removals, perennial care, etc.
    But I never get my way anyway.

    This thread is right on track. Mowing is less than half of my bus, I don't do any applications at this time and calling my work landscaping is overglorifying. The suggested landscape gardening forum would fit perfectly. It might carry threads on pruning, mulching, plant choice etc. The landscape posts are often geared to someone driving a skid loader. I work in the downtown area, many jobs have to be done with hand tools and small equipment because of space restrictions,buried lines etc. I could really use a forum devoted to smaller landscape and maintenance jobs and not mowing and fertilizing.
