According to the Spokane WA municiple code, "Tree grates are required for street trees along arterial streets." Say that five times! :D
I know I'm getting ahead of my self again. I'm planning the landscaping for the coffee shop before it is even built! I found these images at the Spokane WA website. They are great inspiration. I really like this photo below.
This one is helpful too. Now I know how wide my sidewalk needs to be and the correct size for my trees and shrubs.
Of course, MY trees will be palm trees! I love making them. I've never made any this large so that will be a challenge. I'm thinking that I could use a carved wooden dowel for the trunk? Martha Stewart has some cool "fringe scissors" that I might try for making the palm fronds?
I'm taking a "mental health day off" from work tomorrow. I'm planning to get my kit out of the box and cut the new windows and door. If I can get that much done, I'll be happy!
Hope you have a great day! I'm starting to figure out this new Blogger post editor. I think I like it?!
