Mighty Oak Landscaping

Oaks are a good choice for the landscape, offering shade and beauty. Planting a native oak will also help the environment, as it supports a wide variety of wildlife, and is highly adapted to our climate. Oak trees provide food, shelter and nesting places for many species. And, like all trees, they play a critical role in the overall ecosystem by purifying our air and water, stabilizing soil, and providing carbon storage.

The Nuttall oak, in particular, is a great choice for suburban landscaping, as it grows well in our climate and can withstand wet or dry conditions. It also offers a nice color change in the Fall. It produces acorns which will benefit squirrels and other wildlife in the neighborhood. It also provides the shade we all need from the summer heat.

This is one of the most tolerant oaks to urban landscapes and thrives in full sun or partial shade. It can handle a number of different types of soil, and has beautiful green foliage that changes to red in the Fall. Its acorns are also a big hit with local wildlife, and are a good source of nutrition for squirrels.

Despite their imposing size, oaks are actually very easy to grow and maintain. They can be planted in almost all planting zones, and have a long life span, typically reaching over 200 years old. However, they are prone to drought stress and require regular irrigation. They are also susceptible to wind damage, and may be subjected to a number of insect pests.

In general, oaks have a lot to offer, making them an excellent choice for the urban garden. The most important factor in determining the success of an oak tree is how it’s planted and cared for, though. Oaks do best in well-draining, loamy soil with a pH between 6.0 and 7.0. They are also a good choice for sunny or partially sunny sites with well-drained, sandy or clay soils.

“Mighty Oak” has a strange impulse to prove that it’s not the kind of wholesome, family-friendly rock ‘n’ roll movie it appears to be, so it peppers its dialogue with the word “shit” and tries to give itself a hard rock edge. This might work in a dark comedy, but not here, where it’s merely annoying. And, the jarring tonal shifts from the band’s rockin’ debut concert to the sullen black landscape and text that follows really just make things more awkward.
