Are there any restrictions on where I can plant trees and shrubs?
Yes and no. The City recommends that all plants be placed outside of the drainage and utility easements that run around the perimeter of your property. Generally, these easements run 10 feet in the front and rear yards and 5 feet along side property lines. Also, plant materials should be at least 15 feet away from the curb or street because of underground utilities in that area.
