Admiring the Tree Boxes by Casey Trees
Yesterday, I was by Casey Trees on 12th Street, NE, and noticed the tree box area outside of their location. I was impressed with the mix of trees, liriope, pebbles and other plants arranged in a way that becomes a green oasis where grass generally is. I also liked that the curbing was cut in places to guide storm water into the planted areas for drainage and watering.
This is an example I’m going to make a note of with the hopes that something similar might be possible in our neighborhood during street improvement projects.
I’ve also been taking note of bioretention areas and bulb outs when I see them, which more frequently happens when I travel west of the Park.Explore posts in the same categories: Streets and Trees, streetscape comment below, or link to this permanent URL from your own site.
