Can I plant a Matador Maple near a paver walkway?

Good question!

Matador Maple is a much-loved shade tree thanks to the beautiful red fall leaves. However, it may not be the best choice close to a paver walk and driveway. If you decide to give it a try, water deeply to encourage the roots to go down deep rather than growing at the surface. And, don’t heavily mulch around the base. That style of mulching also encourages shallow roots and also isn’t good for the overall health of the tree.

Thanks for writing!
