Rental trees

This was a new one for me. Last year my customer had a new sunken tennis court put in. We had to modify the system because of it. fast forward to now. apparently he still has an open permit on the court, it was never inspected. On the plan he submitted to the town it showed a fence and plantings which he never installed because he likes the clean look of the court.

The inspector comes out and says where are the plants and the fence? No approval if you don't install according to the original plan.

So he is renting 100 or so trees and planting them until he gets his approval then ripping them out again. Today we installed drip on all of them. They won't be in more than 3 weeks.

The inspector may be suspicious when he sees the cheap fence. It looks temporary.

They are burlaped in wire baskets planted about 1/2 to 3/4 in the ground and covered with mulch.

That is a power outlet near the patio.
