Trees for small gardens

Postby Boothy » Thu Mar 10, 2011 1:55 pm


Anyone know of a pretty tree for a small garden so the routs will not damage the house. I only want it to be max 8ft in height with say 5 ft spread. Soil and conditions are good.

Magnolias come in many varieties and range in size from quite small to large trees, so you need to be a bit careful of which one you get. Magnolia stellata is one of the smaller ones, it is also slow-growing.

Add spring flair to your landscape with crabapples. There's a wonderful array available that bears flowers in shades of white, pink, and red; has weeping, rounded, or columnar habits; and produces orange, gold, red, or burgundy fruits. Many varieties offer exceptional fall color and great disease resistance as well. It's just ranging from 6 to 30 feet tall and wide, depending on variety.

There are many trees widely available for smaller gardens, in all shapes and sizes, evergreen and deciduous. Given that many of us have limited space in which to garden, it becomes important that any trees chosen are right for their surroundings, in terms of proportion as well as for their decorative value. You can also choose the Redbud. It is valued for its outstanding display of pink or white flowers in spring, redbud is an easy-to-grow small tree with delightful heart-shape leaves that turn golden-yellow in fall. It thrives in sun or partial shade and is native to areas of North America.
