One of the problems is that we, as a nation, have no real training

experience with 'landscapers' indicates that the guys actually doing
the work are just muscle....no clue why they're doing what they're
doing ref. plants...and not all that much interest; it's just a job.
Idea seems to be get in and get out quick leaving everything pruned
into next year and swathed in mulch.  Pity.
