Bay tree/shrub situation?
My bay shrub is very close to the house and drains. It is about 10 feet tall. Would it be best to take it out?
Their roots are actually quite shallow so you will need to decide the depth of your drain system.
Small shrubs should be planted at least 2 feet from a house foundation, medium shrubs about 3 feet and tall shrubs 4 to 5 feet away. An 8-foot shrub next to a six foot shrub should be spaced about 7 feet apart.
