The Q&A Archives: Patio Trees

Question: I'm looking for a fast-growing tree near a patio that won't damage the concrete. I'm looking for some privacy with either trees or large shrubs. Any suggestions?

Answer: Patio trees should be as litter-free as possible, as well as having non-invasive root systems. A few suggestions include Acacia stenophylla, Cordyline, Firmiana simplex, Palms and tree ferns. Shrub choices are Camellia, Lantana, Viburnum davidii and Rhaphiolepis.
