I just wanted to ask I have outside the front of my house a bush christmas (lilly Pilly) the one with the small small berries on it growing to about 4 meters high now.
The issue Im worried about is its very close to a bunch of water meters and Im concerned about the root system disrupting the pipes.
Is there any chance of this happening?
Can you please advise
Hi Sam, Nothing to worry about. While it is not ideal to plant large shrubs or trees close to water pipes, it is highly unlikely that your lilly pilly will cause any trouble. Don
