How to Use Sky Tower™ Ginkgo in the Landscape
Use these easy trees to line your driveway, or to define the boundaries of your property. Create an impressive impact with an informal grouping in the lawn, or near your front entrance.
This is a versatile tree that can be used for many garden applications.
Imagine a special Mindfulness Meditation Garden just for you. Could you see a single Sky Tower Ginkgo used as a special focal point?
Perhaps you could solve some of your toughest business problems sitting with your back up against the straight trunk and your head gazing up into the impenetrable, fluttering foliage above.
Do you see what a treat this tree is? It's frankly a bit more special than the more common trees you can find at any big box store.
Use a single tree as a lawn specimen plant in a large mulched bed. These trees stay small enough to use in courtyards.
Or bring in additional soil and sculpt a large, curving berm. Plant three trees in a loose triangle for a very effective informal grouping.
Dress up these trees with symmetrical measurements in front of formal facades. Or, use more relaxed spacing to suit the looks of modern architecture.
Create an impressive, tall solid hedge by planting them four feet apart on center. Measure from the center of one to the center of the next, and they'll grow together and touch.
If you have the space, use a long hedge of Sky Tower Ginkgo to create walls of an outdoor dining room. Or, use a series of three trees flanking either side of the entrance to your entertainment area.
Imagine the conversations held at a long, rustic wood table and ergonomic outdoor dining chairs!
You might solve all the world's problems in such a setting. These easy-care trees were born to inspire, after all.
Or, perhaps your guests will simply be inspired to outdo each other in a salty contest of off-color limerick jokes. Either way, you'll enjoy the outstanding Sky Tower Ginkgo in your space.
