(A)   All required front and street side landscape areas shall be fully landscaped in accordance with a minimum of one plant unit for every 100 lineal feet of frontage. In areas where greater buffer or screening is desirable, additional plant units may be required by the Planning and Zoning Commission.
   (B)   Where detention basins and/or drainageways are constructed partially or entirely within setback areas or other high-visibility areas on sites, they must be adequately landscaped. A minimum of two plant units shall be required for every 100 feet of the perimeter of the basin, measured at the top of the basin. All detention basin surfaces shall be treated with a native groundcover seed mix or lawn mix as required. River rock or similar non-plant alternative may be allowed, subject to the approval of the town staff.
   (C)   (1)   Where landscape screening is required by the zoning code or through Commission or Town Council action, such landscaping shall be in addition to the general landscaping requirements.
      (2)   Required fences and walls adjacent to public roads and highways shall have a unifying theme and provide variation by using changes in height, different material combinations, offset angles, articulation and/or plant materials.
