You have inspired a new thread Frank 

Impressions of the posters here

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
