An effective screen-planting easement not less than 15 feet wide is required between residential and commercial or industrial lots, or along lot lines to discourage the undesirable development of residential lots fronting on major streets. Required screening easements are in addition to any other easements that may be required on the lot, such as drainage and utility easements.
