Grant's Gardens, Inc. uses large trees and palms to create focal points, balance architectural features and define scale in the landscape. Large Maypan Coconut Palms, Bismarckia Palms, Cuban Royal Palms, Sabal Palms, Pindo Palms, Carnavon Palm, Ribbon Palm or Medjool Date Palm and staggered height plantings can generate an amazing array of natural beauty.

When massed plantings of palms are located along an avenue, seawall, boardwalk or across the front of a landscape in matching rows, they can create a mature majestic tropical landscape. Large Palm and tree plantings require copious planning, coordinating and synchronization. Soil amendment, drainage, maintenance, lighting and irrigation must be planned well in advance.

Large equipment and machinery - like barges, cranes, excavators, backhoes, trenchers, front-end loaders, etc. etc. need to be carefully deployed in order to achieve the end result. Finally, landscape lighting of these large softscape elements, is critical to the final aesthetic effect.

Important environmental conditions that must be considered when planting large trees and palms:

  • Cold hardiness
  • Drought tolerance
  • Salt tolerance
  • Light requirements
  • Wind tolerance
  • Salt intrusion in the root system
  • Soil requirements
  • Moisture tolerance
  • Nutritional requirements

    • Glenn, What a feat it was to get those HUGE trees planted, without disturbing a blade of grass anywhere else on the property. The removal of the Washingtonians was expertly accomplished as well…
