Honeybell tree

Hi everyone. Newbie to fruit trees. Just bought a honeybell and ruby red grapefruit.... deciding where to plant. Question is, where I want to place these, kind of close to my pool cage (LIKE 10-12 FEET). Good southern exposure. . Can I prune them to maintain a smallish shape. Will they still bear fruit? When do I prune? My gardener/planter/irrigation guy is coming tomorrow so any quick answers would be appreciated! THANK YOU!
