In discovery of the client’s wants and needs, we learned of the importance to conserve certain oak trees on the property. After identifying the trees, a plan was put in place to protect them. This included elaborate root pruning, trenching and reworking some of the roads, helping the client to win the “Outstanding Achievement Award” for excellence in landscaping by the City of Gainesville.
