Landscape Screening

DISCLAIMER: The information provided on this page is a work in progress and should be viewed strictly as informative.
 
Note: All landscape screening must adhere to s.295-405-1

 

Principle:

 
 

Landscaping should be used to surround or visually separate utilitarian objects from street frontages.

 

Standard:

 
Type "G" Landscaping

This type is primarily intended to surround or visually separate utilitarian objects from street frontages. Examples of items to be screened with type "G" landscaping include mechanical equipment or enclosures, dumpsters and other trash collection equipment, and loading docks. This type of landscaping does not require trees, but does require screening from the ground level at least 6 feet above grade. Plantings in the low- level, eye-level and high-level zones shall create a continuous edge of plants, completely obscuring the area behind the landscaped area from view from the street.

 

Images/Examples:

 
A good example of type "G" landscaping screening a loading dock that shows a 6 foot high, brick wall with low-level landscaping and evenly spaced trees.
The materials used on this Walgreen's loading dock wall make it blend smoothly with the overall building design.
Poured in place concrete wall with decorative metal fence above helps screen dumpsters and other service equipment from public view.
