Gdowski <br /> stated that he reviews plans from a long range perspective and attempts <br /> to determine what planting arrangements will most likely look like in <br /> five to ten years. Gdowski further noted that disease resistance, <br /> maturity and growth habit of plant materials are also major considerations. <br /> Gdowski also commented the species of plant material may vary greatly in <br /> their growth characteristics. <br /> Glass observed that the Plan Commission is often concerned with <br /> screening. Under this context it is necessary to know from examining <br /> a landscape plan on paper whether or not a certain arrangement will <br /> produce the desired effects immediately as well as into the future. <br /> Gdowski related that maintenance characteristics of plant materials <br /> may vary greatly and have quite an impact on a landscape plan's effect. <br /> Low, medium and high maintenance plants are available on the market <br /> with the low maintenance plants holding more of a true form as they <br /> grow. <br />
