Example text

Plant material can be effectively used to create a kinetic relationship between the pedestrian observer and the landscape, unfolding views and enclosing spaces along paths in a carefully designed sequence, or applied on a larger scale to the movement of people in cars, such as the design of motorway planting for viewing at high speeds. Unlike architecture, landscape design is concerned with living material which not only grows and changes during the seasons and over time, but moves in response to wind or to the touch.

The particular needs and problems associated with transplanting semimature trees are the subject of Chapter 9. Trees also require space. Not only do they require room enough to grow upwards, but usually a certain freedom to expand downwards and outwards. The spread of a large, mature tree may be 20 m or more. Planting in accordance with minimum space rec­ ommendations is seldom advisable, for if a tree out­ grows the space provided it may cause damage to buildings and have to be felled. 4 TREES AND THE TOWNSCAPE Trees should be seen as an integral part of the total three-dimensional urban structure, giving definition and meaning to the spaces between buildings, and enhancing the buildings themselves.

Elm, poplar, willow and ash are the most likely offenders and should be planted at least as far away from a building as their estimated mature height. Other trees can be planted up to about two-thirds of their height away, or closer if the building foundations reach to a depth of 2 m or more, or other precautions are taken such as an underground wall barrier or raft foundations. Roots may deflect or grow into pipes which should be protected by concrete casting or made of cast iron if they are placed near to existing trees.
