|Tools for this tag|
The tag landuse=shrubs is used to map an area of cultivated shrubs, used to grow decorative woody perenial shrubs or bushes (which are shorter than trees). Often these features are found within a leisure=park or leisure=garden, or as landscaping at the edge of parking lots or around residential or commercial areas.
Sometimes this tag has been used for semi-natural areas of bushes or shrubs, which are much more commonly tagged as natural=scrub (or sometimes natural=heath). Some mappers use natural=scrub for managed or pruned areas of shrubs instead.
