Hi, My daughter owns a flat that has an area around it that has long been tarmacked over. A decision has been made to cover some of it with gravel and plant in three trees after first digging out holes.
The trees will be about 15 feet away from the windows of the ground floor flats so nothing that will take too much light. It is on the north side of the building.
I had wondered about Japanese maple, one of the white barked birch (such as Ermans Birch) or maybe Sorbus (Rowan) if there is a reasonable small one - I'm thinking maybe 7 - 9 meters fully grown.
Any advice would be useful. Work starts next week.
