Required landscaping may be placed wholly or partially in utility or other easements providing all requirements can be fulfilled and approval is granted by the holder of the easements. Trees placed under overhead utility wires must be from List B, in Section 1175.13.
Landscaping must also be placed in the required area between the property line and the front, rear and side yard setbacks.
In no case, however, shall landscaping and bufferyards be established so as to block the sight distance at street or drive intersections. Ground cover and trees with at least eight feet of limbless trunk shall be permitted within the sight distance triangle. In the case of a city street intersection, the sight triangle shall consist of the area between points twenty feet (20') along both intersecting streets from their respective edge of pavements.
