Getting ready for the green
It's the second week of September and crews have been busy at work completing the concrete road base, between Ridout and Talbot. This is one of the last steps before the pavers can be placed.
Planting trees to keep Dundas Place blooming for years to come
We've seen a lot of pipes and pavement over the last few months so we were excited to start installing new tree infrastructure this week. Below is a short video describing the underground infrastructure which will allow new trees to develop deep roots while also helping hold up the sidewalk surface we'll soon walk on.

The new underground framing allows for tree roots to grow and expand without disrupting the surface above. Below is a rendering to show you what Dundas Place will look like once the new trees are planted (left).
