Tree selection help?

akaj9(9 Central Florida)October 6, 2011

Had a pool put in recently...and want to create a walk way that snugs the house on the East side...lined with trees. So I'm thinking a small to med tree, rather narrow, but will grow up so they can be pruned high to walk under....any suggestions? It is only about 6 feet from the house....

Thanks for any input!

I would go with a palm of some sort, seems that they would serve your need the best and go well the tropical feel of having a pool.

It's true they probably do...cept...I just don't like them...I'm one of those florida gardeners that doesn't do much tropicals....could say I'm bucking the system a bit....but none the less Palms would not match the look of the grounds...Oak trees, crape myrtles, maples, rose bushed and lots of flowers and grasses.....Any other suggestions?
