October Glory Maples close to gunite retaining walls?

10 years ago


First time poster here. We recently had some landscaping added to our yard. Our landscaper planted 2 October Glory maples somewhat close to and inside the raised area of a new gunite retaining wall we built. The closest one is about 20 inches from the wall edge. Is this going to be a big problem in the future?

I'm very paranoid about root issues since we had 8 very large redwood trees removed from our yard that were causing big ground/patio problems.

He said they'd be okay since the roots go down instead of out (as in the case of the redwoods) but just thought I'd check with the experts here.
