Wrong choice of "street trees" is what I saw, you could see where the roots had lifted the sidewalk.
Sidewalk contractors need love, too.
Yeah, I bet they love repairing due to roots. I've had to repair irrigation also in those strips due to roots.....not fun.
Try planning the install when there's a hundred-year-old tree in that strip
Very carefully, I would imagine.
Sometimes we just bailed, and went with spray heads a set distance from the curb, overspraying the sidewalk. No practical way to defeat the roots.
Go the Texas route and use subsurface, I bet those tree roots would love that drip tubing.
I have installed street trees that had separate zones for just the trees and another zone for the turf. I've also seen barriers installed to limit the root growth; it's still "wrong tree given the application."
Are they still $1,500 a zone?
