Does anyone have experience with gardening or landscaping? Didn't you do some gardening for your parents, @Juju ?
I hired someone to trim some high tree branches that were damaging our roof, and they went absolutely nuts on all of our trees and bushes. Is there a legitimate reason for this? Should I pay for this? What kind of mitigation work can I ask for from them?
If it helps, this is in the North American Mid-Atlantic, and they cut this stuff during winter.
@templewulf I helped by carrying two tons of stones... But I can boost xD
@templewulf With my humble hobby gardening skills, I can tell you that this is how trees are typically cut. I can't see if that is the case in your photos.
@silwol thanks so much for that!
Assuming this was done correctly, what is the purpose of cutting off every branch? They seemed to be doing fine in past winters
@templewulf Can't say for sure, but I think it's for the plant to grow equally to all directions for aesthetic reasons.
@templewulf I'd love to hear from you how this turns out in spring and summer 😃
@silwol I can't promise I will remember to post it, but I'll do my best as I'm documenting the progress!
@templewulf I work as a gardener!
We never prune stuff unless we're asked, so that seems really weird to me, so I would complain about that.
Otherwise it's hard to comment. Some plants really like being cut back a lot, and some don't. Some of those at least look like that have nodes that will sprout.
@blueberrysoft @templewulf Wife here. I don't know whether they'd like getting cut back,
but I can tell you that we've been living here for three years and for the first 2 we had no issue with any of those plants. I wish I could help you more, but the only plants I know for sure they reduced to shrivelled husks were our rose bushes. Let me see if I can grab you some photos.
@blueberrysoft thank you for lending us your expertise! This helps a lot in talking to him about it like I know what I'm talking about!
I'm hopeful that they'll recover, but he's being awfully cagey about why they did that.
Hi! Game Making Social is a part of the Fediverse dedicated to being a well-moderated, cosy, friendly place to talk and share stuff about amateur videogame making, and everything surrounding that.
It's kinda an offshoot of Game Making Tools, which is a wiki(+) for a similar audience.
Game makers, game writers, game curators, etc. etc. most welcome!
I also try to maintain a list of not-jerk game-making communities on the wiki, which you might find interesting.
