Select the right tree for your garden.
We can grow a wide variety of trees from around the world in Solana Beach, but which ones are best in our individual gardens? Before you plant a tree, consider:
Do you want an evergreen to screen a view and create cool, deep shade or a deciduous tree for light shade.
Do you want color or fruit?
Anticipate the mature size and shape of the tree: will it naturally be big or small, tall or wide?
Will the tree you choose become a nuisance to neighbors by blocking sun or view?
Learn about its care: will it need a lot of water, pruning or cleanup?
Will its roots have room to spread without damaging a patio or sidewalk?
Choose wisely. A well-planted tree may last a lifetime - or more!
