The primary challenge of growing trees in an urban environment is the soil. Trees thrive in lightly compacted soil that provides their root systems with ready access to water and nutrients. However, due to the requirements of an urban environment soil is typically heavily compacted. This provides structures with greater stability, but can stunt the growth of trees.
Recently, the crews at E-Landscape completed work on the landscaping for the new Spa Gate townhomes in Annapolis. This project, for Carraway Homes, utilized Silva Cells, a great product that promotes tree growth in high traffic urban areas.
