what would be a great courtyard tree?
We are in Zone 10, (18/19 Sunset) and will have a full-sun courtyard in the house we are building. I guess it's more of a patio, because it is open on two sides. We want small trees, but with a leafy canopy that will provide a nice environment for sitting on the patio. We don't want to deal with any mess, don't need any flowers, can't have any root problems.... just a nice green canopy, simple trunk structure. Thank you for your ideas!
