Have you ever wondered what the roots from your vegetation might be doing under the ground? Where are they going, how BIG are they, and are they causing any damage? When we first bought our home, there was a really nice shade tree in the front yard about five feet from the foundation’s footings. I really liked that tree. However, with my husband being the foundation repair guy, he said, “That tree is the first thing we are removing from this yard. Do you know how much damage that thing can to do to the slab and the concrete?” Well needless to say, on day five of living in our new home that tree was being cut down.

In hindsight it was good we did because the roots had already made their way toward the front of the house. So in today’s tip of the day Brian and Mark talk about vegetation, tree roots, and plant roots. They also address how they can make an impact on the soils surrounding your home and cause damage to your home’s foundation.
