Trees are a precious commodity here on the plains and it’s important to preserve them as you go about designing and building new neighborhoods. The more trees you can preserve during construction, the easier it will be for you to market and sell the homes you’re constructing.
When integrating on-site trees, your excavation crews should work closely with a landscape designer and an arborist who can help you protect the trees as pipes and cables are installed. This is imperative as the root system must be preserved for the tree’s long-term health.
They can also help you determine the proper grading for effective drainage and to ensure that roots won’t tear up sidewalks and driveways. As the project winds down, they can be called upon one last time to help you select plants and grasses that can create a healthy ecosystem and strong curb appeal within the neighborhood.
