We newly rebuilt our garage including a second floor rec room, one foot indigenous the property line v our neighbor. (That location is essentially where the old garage was, and also is consistent with zoning regulations and also our building permit.) The neighbor currently wants to tree 4 king palm trees, with starting heights that 10-12 feet, on his side of the garage, possibly as close as a foot far from the garage. (The garage is just 20 feet from end to end on his side, so i don"t know just how he thinks the 4 king palm trees of that size will grow and also flourish in such a small space, however whatever.) I"m wondering even if it is the king palm trees will have actually a an unfavorable impact top top the concrete foundation of our garage over time. The structure is 2 feet deep. I"ve read generally that king palm tree root don"t commonly damage concrete really much, because of their thin diameter and tendency to flourish in the route of least resistance. Our landscaper has recommended that we put a 3-foot deep root obstacle (made of vinyl or plastic) underground to protect the foundation, and we"re going to shot to execute that. I think that the people in this forum are probably an extremely knowledgeable about this kind of issue, so i would greatly appreciate your thoughts and suggestions. Thanks very much.

You watch a lot of palms right next to the pools every the time because of your noninvasive roots. Those palms will have zero impact on her 24" footer and also installing a rhizome barrier will be a garbage of money on her part.
