We often need to place large areas of shrub mixes with specimen trees/shrubs in their midst, so would be great to have that exclusion functionality in the placement of Shrub Areas.

Michael,

 

I believe this wasn't designed in initially because it'd be shrubs excluding shrubs.

Maybe you could send in a drawing where this is definitely needed on a large scale and I can work with you on if permitting shrub area mixes to exclude shrubs is something I can work with our development team on, or if maybe there's a better method.

 

I'd say using a groundcover concept plant for your mix would be a better solution right now. Is there a reason why the groundcover section isn't working for you?

 

Really, we've been talking about just simply merging shrub areas and groundcovers into just "Areas". So it'd be Trees, Shrubs and Areas.

Trees, Shrubs, Areas, and Groundcovers.  Not getting rid of Groundcovers.

And it sounds like you need the ability to choose on the fly, whether or not to exclude Trees along with Shrubs.

It was dilemmas like that, as well as the issue of the Shrub Area boundary linetype, that made us not have the option just yet.  But definitely on our radar.

That sounds good Jeremiah, to be able to on-the-fly choose to exclude trees/shrubs in areas would be a real asset to the tool - thanks.
