Over the past 2 days there have been several questions involving general lawn maintenance:
- Bermuda grass is invading my Kentucky Blue? Any solutions that don’t involve Roundup?
- What is the best kind of grass/seed for a completely shaded lawn?
that as defined in "Should we allow questions about stuff “outside” of the home?" are considered off-topic but I am having second thoughts that they should be included. Getting your lawn to grow, which in turn improves the value of your house, does feel very much a Home Improvement type question. There is definitely a fuzzy line here, and eventually there will probably be a better stack exchange site for these type of questions, but they are not completely off-topic so I am proposing that they be allowed.
It almost feels like this site should answer questions on anything sold inside of Lowes or Home Depot (but I wouldn't want to make that the rule to govern on/off topic questions since I know it would not apply 100%... but it might be a good litmus test).
Questions such as what type of tomato plant should I use in my garden or what type of flower will bloom in July should NOT be included. But questions on what type of grass seed to use or what type of lawn mower to buy should be allowed.
