A shade tree ,deciduous,3-6mtrs height,grow in lawned area,attract birds
1km from ocean. I have 2 4x4 mtr squares of lawn in full sun north facing. I want to grow a tree in centre of each one to provide shade over back deck and probably over deck roofline. A thin trunk preferred and no runners. Attract birds a plus . Thanks
Thank you for contacting Yates.
For a small shade tree, you may look into the following:
- Weeping Cherry
- Crape Myrtle
- Crab Apple
- Flowering Dogwood
I suggest improving soil before planting by digging in some Yates Dynamic Lifter Soil Improver & Plant Fertiliser, which is a manure based, certified organic fertiliser, and will provide all the nutrients (nitrogen, potassium and phosphorus) for your plants need to grow and thrive.
Hope this helps and happy garending.
