Need yr help finding a tree/shrub
Happy Sunday all!
I am at my wits end and need your help. We have to redo a 10x12ish almost square corner of our yard after the untimely death of our beloved 'Sam' (yes, we, well daughter Ladybug, name our trees, lol!), due to incompetent landscape employees.
We are looking for a small tree or tree-like shrub, that we could put in a massive pot (sitting on something decorative to give height due to our 5ft fence), no more than 5-8ft high and maybe 5-6ft wide, mainly to give us privacy. Something we could shape. That corner gets great morning sun as its almost due east, but not much at all after 1pm (no matter the time of year) due to how the house is situated.
That corner will be another sitting area with fire pit, adirondack chairs, and crushed granite. It's the corner of our 'corner' lot, we're on a peninsula, so some kind of privacy is important.
Any suggestions, recommendations, or help (pictures too!) will be greatly appreciated!
