The Q&A Archives: Mediterranean Fan Palm Roots

Question: I'm planning on planting a pair of Mediterranean Fan Palms near my swimming pool. I would like to know more about their root system so that I would get an idea of how far away from the pool they need to be sited or if I should consider an alternative palm.

Answer: Those roots should not be a problem they go deep and shallow too, much like grass roots, just a lot larger. If you can plant the palm at least 4 or 5 feet from the pool it should be fine. Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
