Suggestions for Good Patio Tree
We are building a patio in our backyard and want to leave some areas without pavers in order to plant small trees IN the patio. I had always thought we'd use crape myrtles for this, but now I am not sure. I did some work around one of our Natchez crapes out front earlier this month, and noticed that its roots were pretty close to the surface. Would that spell disaster for my patio (ie: making the pavers heave)? What other suggestions do y'all have for small trees in this type of planting? I could just stick to pots, but I thought it would be nice to have both.
The trees need to be able to take full sun.
