When landscaping a patio or deck, you'll want to choose appropriate patio trees. Patio trees tend to be smaller in height and diameter, making them ideal for small areas like patios and decks. These space-saving patio trees add beautiful accents to your living area and many have lovely flowers or fruit to add color and variety.
Part of the beauty of patio trees is that they add an air of intimacy to an outdoor space. Small patio trees can provide deck shade, offer natural focal points, offer privacy during gatherings, or frame views. Patio trees can also architectural design to your outdoor space.
Trees that make great additions to decks and patios are great to plant in containers, and come in a variety of types so you can choose the right one for you. Be sure to consider the tree’s mature size in relation to your patio, as well as the weight of the tree.
