The apartments are part of the Seat of the industrial past of the area of woodland and gardens grow between the interstices of this community during the fifties and sixties was considered a city within a city. Now we are fully consolidated as urban garden
The gardens and woodland of San Cristobal share neighborliness and belonging to a common past as part of the development of the old story of the Seat. Both areas are connected by a small road that acts as a small cord that opens a direct access for residents to the nearby Paseo de la Zona Franca. More sheltered and protected the gardens of San Cristobal, the answer to the woodland profile hard square with trees tall buildings in competition with neighboring communities that surround parterres. In fact, the two areas act as an urban unit where the green has been scratching and standing on every corner where possible.
The greenest part of the space is the central square of irregular contour where the trees are distributed in different beds, also of irregular shapes.
Before reaching this place in the middle of a small roundabout ash (Fraxinus excelsior),
a cedar of Lebanon (Cedrus Lebanon)
and Poplars (Populus nigra pyramid).
The different parterres are among other examples of buildings also tall poplars.
Once inside the square we highlight, also for its height, some Australian casuarinas and pine (Casuarina cunninghamiana)
and Constantinople acacia (Albizia julibrissin).
Distributed by false peppertrees find beds (Schinus molle)
ombu (Phytolacca dioica)
and enveloping much of the square plane (Platanus acerifolia)
more casuarinas and poplars, and among these, some specimens of honey locusts (Gleditsia triacanthos inermis)
In another corner of the square and on the grassy area find most Canadian poplars (Populus x Canadians
Moensch) and pine (Pinus pinea)
plus some bananas. The playground adjacent to the parterre is surrounded by ash trees (Fraxinus excelsior) jacarandas (Jacaranda mimosifolia)
and plane (Platanus acerifolia).
From the middle of the square goes a ramp that exceeds a small slope and leads to a new group of houses among which are also trees. On the slope of the ramp is again and ash over the railing of a bush made copies miòpor (Myoporum laetum). This tree is a native of New Zealand and can reach great heights but gardening is used for hedges.
In this part of the garden hardens further. The beds are smaller and the trees must be sought between the pits and small beds that use the inbound and outbound towers housing. We receive three copies of palms (Whasingtonia robusta)
and gardeners grow palms (Chamaerops humilis)
and pagoda trees (Styphnolobium japonicum).
We also find more specimens of pagoda trees in flower beds combined with bananas and joint alignment acacia trees (Robinia pseudoacacia pyramid).
