Every Texas commercial property has one thing in common: parking lots.
Parking lots and paved areas are essential to office parks and HOAs and industrial facilities and all kinds of other commercial properties. Some sites even require a specific number of parking spots to accommodate the amount of people that come and go there.
Unfortunately, parking lots tend to be a bit unattractive as they are.
Landscaping with trees in and around parking lots and strips can greatly approve the appearance of these areas. Trees also provide other perks, such as preventing soil erosion and storm water draining problems, keeping wind and noise at bay, reducing carbon dioxide through photosynthesis and enhancing the comfort of property visitors by providing cooling shade.
While parking lots and paved areas need trees, they can also provide some challenging growing conditions for certain species.
But, you’re in luck, more trees can thrive in these areas than you think. In fact, the list is pretty vast of trees that can be nice additions to parking lots and paved areas, so we’d like to highlight the top tree characteristics you should avoid when selecting tree species for parking lots and paved areas to help you narrow your search.
