Landscape Requirement Guide
Dublin’s high quality of life is promoted through minimum landscape requirements on commercial developments. Landscaping is not an afterthought of the development process. A fair amount of planning and design considerations help shape the arrangement of the building, parking lots and service areas.
The examples found in this pamphlet are intended to help communicate the landscape requirements for a typical office development. This manual may also be a useful guide for designers, property owners and contractors charged with the planning, installation or maintenance of landscaping within the City of Dublin.
Planting specifications in this manual represent the accepted industry standards, as of 2003. Please contact the Landscape Contractors Association (1.800.825.5062) for the current Landscape Specification Guidelines. The International Society of Arboriculture also publishes acceptable planting specifications (1.217.355.9411). It is recommended that tree care professionals such as nursery technicians or arborists install and maintain plants within the landscape. It should be noted that all plants required under the Dublin Code must be properly installed and remain healthy in perpetuity. Please refer to the planting detail and guidelines for more information.
