trees planted in large strip of turf

The success of this planting project was directly attributable to the designer who had the vision to ask for professional help in planning this project. Trees grew well simply because they were given appropriate soil space for root expansion. Root systems of these three trees are overlapping and have colonized this entire soil space-they are sharing the soil space.
