Answer: Instead of a tree, why not plant several upright shrubs? This will provide a dense privacy screen and shrubs will be easier to maintain at the height and width you desire. Indian laurel is a broadleaf upright shrub that takes well to most soils, grows well in hot summer areas and has only insignificant flowers (so bees won't be a problem near your pool). Hope this suggestion works for you.
