Q

I would like to plant trees in my park strip, but have a gas line running through the middle. If I hand dig, is it ok to plant trees over the top of the line? What is the depth of gas lines?

Answer(s)

A

Planting trees over a gas line is not a good idea. Plant something non-woody, like large ornamental grasses. Then if the gas line must be accessed, no terrible loss will be incurred.
