The mapnik symbol looks more like marsh/bog. Maybe a small bushy type symbol would be better?

scrub as way?

Taginfo shows that it is used as a linear way. RicoZ (talk) 18:32, 25 December 2013 (UTC)

Taginfo only knows about the 3 primitivy type (node, way and relation), in this case, a way can also be an area (when closed), and a relation can be an area (with the right tags and members). So nothing is wrong. --Sanderd17 (talk) 19:50, 3 November 2014 (UTC)

scrub for artificial shrubberies

Should this be used for planted (artificial) shrubberies, for example when mapping a park? Philip1201 (talk) 15:50, 5 November 2015 (UTC)

Yes, I've often wondered the same myself. Bunches of planted shrubs and trees in city areas are generally a problem from what I can see. If they are not in a park, then there seem to be no good tags for them. The present tags do not seem to be well matched to represent small, managed but relatively natural areas.

I'd saw emphatically NO! Not the same thing at all. Extending the meaning of a tag unfortunately means that all areas mapped with a specific meaning lose that and it has to be re-established by additional tags. Probably in the short-term use landuse=shrubbery (by analogy to landuse=flowerbed), but in practice we could do with a specific set of tags for specific features of gardens & parks based around a common key.
