Planting trees near a well -- need some guidance please
My wife would like to have a circular garden bed made to conceal the well cap....the well cap would be at the rear of the bed.
In addition to some shrubs and perrenials, she was hoping to have a tree planted in the middle of the bed. She was planning to do an evergreen, like a blue spruce or some other type of christmas tree.
But I am a little worried about planting near the well......
especially since the christmas tree can get quite large over time.
Could the experts here please provide some guidance on planting a tree near a well? How close could we plant something without too much worry?
Pictures of area of planned tree
Here are pictures of the area of where we want to plant the tree.
As you can see we are on a corner lot. The corner is quite a busy street corner.....so we were hoping an evergreen tree would provide a some screening and shade.
Like I said above our initial thought would be to plant the tree somewhere between the street signs and well cap....
The distance from the well cap to the middle street sign is about 25 feet.
