    I am not here to argue, and I don't know what is or isn't common practice over there. Isn't that going to create one hell of a sod cliff when you remove the boards, and couldn't you install some landscaping if driving over corners is an issue?

    Or steal some immobilization spikes from the police department and plant them in the curb.

    The border is a bit unconventional and possibly eye brow raising. If I were for some reason to build such a thing I would recommend going to a decking supply place and purchasing some of the synthetic boards. You could also fasten the boards from the backside. By next year to boards are going to bulge and start leaning outward like a belt on a fat person.

    The other thing to consider is that the median strip is in the right of way which could cause some problems. The other issue is you have raised the soil over the tree's root zone which is going to lower the oxygen content of the soil. For most tree types this is a big problem. Raising the soil around the tree trunk of any tree even a few inches can cause fungal infections that can be lethal.

    The tree appears to be a pear variant such as a Bradford or possibly Aristocrat which happens to be more tolerant to varying levels of oxygen levels than some tree's. Here in central Texas Cotton Root Rot tends to kill ornamental pear tree's in 20-30 years or less.

    Your learning greenhorn, it takes time learn everything. Ten years from now you'll probably look back and wonder what the hell you were thinking when you came up with that idea. I think most of us have all done something in the past that we'd like to forget about.
