Nature’s Welcome

April 19, 2010

You may notice a change to our front entrance this year. We’ve added new trees.

Previously, there was a line of trees in the sidewalk, each surrounded by a tree grate. A tree’s normal root habit is about a foot deep and several times the crown’s diameter, for maximum access to rainfall and oxygen exchange. Our tree grates were about six feet across, within the drip-line of the tree itself, so the trees suffered. Everyone knows trees need water.

Here is a video of the before and after.

The new trees are Crape Myrtles, each in individual mulched islands. These islands provide a larger area for watering or rainfall. These new young trees will fare far better than the previous for several years to come.

Another change to the front is the removal of Euonymous that was growing on the building. Everything looks great. Our ticket sales now look bright and inviting with these landscape changes.
