APLD Bay Area DESIGNER FORUM SERIES:

Designing Hell Strips

A MEMBERS ONLY round table discussion about the challenges of designing and maintaining plantings in parking strips and other narrow & high traffic spaces. Including these topics:

  • Which street trees are least likely to heave sidewalks?
  • Curb cuts for storm water capture - are any cities allowing?
  • Which are the toughest walkable groundcovers?
  • Edibles in the strip? Is that a good idea?

Please feel free to bring images of successful parking strips you have designed.

This program = 1.0 APLD CEU
