Mowed turf was planted in the vulnerable planters between the commercial tenants
and the main parking field where heavy foot traffic occurs. Spray heads with small
radius nozzles provide good coverage with minimal over-spray.
Crape Myrtle trees are used in the areas immediately in front of the buildings since
they can be kept low enough to keep signs visible. The larger canopy trees, which
are necessary to meet City shade requirements, are planted further from the signs
and are chosen for their high branch pattern, which keeps signs visible as the trees
Planting is relatively subdued on much of the frontage to highlight the accent plants
at the entry drives. Wide turf areas along the Roseville Parkway frontage provide
an inviting environment for pedestrians using the meandering bike path.
The project is anchored by Safeway and Long’s Drugs. Crape Myrtle trees and Dwarf
Red Oleanders provide Summer color.

Native plants and plants with a native appearance were installed adjacent to the
protected wetlands to the north of the site. Mondell Pines, Deergrass and Dwarf Manzanita
are the primary plant species.
