Also, please ask all the questions you've ever wanted to ask a landscaper and were too afraid to ask. Is it REALLY called a "tight crotch?" What's the difference between form and habit?

This blog seeks to demystify landscape architecture, working not to reinforce differences in title, but foster mutual understanding.
