Designing streets and avenues

Designing streets and avenues

The design of a street or avenue often needs to meet a long list of conditions in terms of user-friendliness and aesthetics. The above and below-ground pressure on streets and avenues is increasing and all the different functions need to be integrated well. This is no mean feat. The conditions also leave little room for originality, so many streets have the same layout.

Natural experience on streets

Natural experience on streets

Trees on streets and along avenues create a natural experience, bring human scale and give identity to the city. Many cities have traditionally been known for 'their' tree species. The Hague is known for its chestnuts, Paris is known for its plane trees, Amsterdam for its elms and Berlin for its limes. Over time, there has been a shift though, and we increasingly see the same trees recurring throughout the streetscape. Cities are losing their 'tree identity' and therefore their unique atmosphere and experience. By re-evaluating the tree stock and history during the design of streets and avenues, the desired atmosphere and experience can be expressed perfectly through specific tree species, textures and structures.

Textures, structures and colours

By making smart use of the unique character of different tree species, in terms of shape, colour and structure, in the design, streets and avenues gain a very individual identity and experience. A plane tree creates a very different atmosphere to a robinia, for example. The heavy supporting branches on the plane tree, combined with the large leaves, give this tree a solid appearance. The robinia is an equally large tree but has a totally different look. The branch structure is whimsical and the fine, bright-green leaves form a kind of cloud above the grooved trunk. The planting advisors at Ebben Nurseries will be happy to help you in your choice.

Disease resistance and biodiversity

Disease resistance and biodiversity

By cultivating genetic variation within specific tree species, Ebben Nurseries is able to limit susceptibility to diseases. An avenue planting consisting of various variations is uniform in terms of size and maintenance, but differs in autumn colours or blossom tints, for example. Imagine an avenue planted with different varieties of Norway Maple. Surprising in the spring and autumn. Genetic species variations reinforce the green experience whilst making a significant ecological contribution for bees and biodiversity.
