No, not "just like that"  but curiosity eggs me on to imagine what the forum members look like or behave 

Frank's post on the Gonzales thread suggests he is a dancer.  Quite a good one too.  a dapper fellow, disciplined and correct.  Some of the "handles" suggest a sense of humour.....Tootles,  Cangranmafixit etc 

No need to give any personal info away or respond (to keep folks guessing frustratingly

Just a bit of fun?

Nothing  will really work.  Stop your dog or live with what he/she does on it.  You can't watch the dog all the time and follow with buckets of water. Anyway, the damage will still be just as bad .  Sorry 

Leylandii

I have done this .....Leylandii last an awful,long time as trunks. ,I erected a tripod of strong galvanised rods with some mesh around the trunks.  I kept spurs around the trunks and planted Montana.  It looks superb in spring and green for most of,the year. However. I would cut trunks  to 6'.

Hiya Cangrandmafixit the grit needs to be in the  planting hole really but I had  a gigantea in a damper spot and simply covered it with a sheet of glass suspended above it.  

Empty Space??

Ah! Busy.  I practise the Chelsea chop on mine.   And in mid summer I cut back by a third or so.  So many flowers that it isn't noticed but it makes for a sturdier late summer and autumn plant.  I disagree......not too tall and with real impact.  Mine have stood up to winds and rain without being spoiled.    Amistad has a rich quality of flower that few other salvias have .  

Very long growing season here too producing lush growth ....cutting back therefore is important
