proper plants for poolside garden
I have an above ground pool, and I want to plant some shade trees near it, to provide a bit of shade from the Oklahoma summer sun. Since the pools are 4 to 5 feet tall, I will need to plant a fairly tall tree to provide some shade, but I don't want one that is going to constantly be dropping leaves/seeds/bark into my pool. I know I'll need to get a sapling, seeing as I'm wanting to have this completed and have some shade by next summer. The pool I have is like the ones listed here. Does anybody have a suggestion as to what trees/shrubs I should plant? Remember, I'm in the middle of Oklahoma City.
