Your Japanese maple will grow about 5' wide at maturity so you'll want to keep it about 6' away from your house to provide enough room to walk behind it for maintenance and to provide good air circulation around it. If you plan on keeping it pruned to a smaller size, you can plant it a little closer. Hope this answers your question!
