Does anyone have a good picture of a canopy tree planted in a small courtyard (less than 18’x18′)?
I am trying to convince a client that this would be really cool, but they are hesitant, and I can’t seem to find any good images to back it up. For the tree, I am thinking Thornless Honey Locust, to still let a good amount of light in…also because it shouldn’t get too too big.
Jason, I actually got the idea for the tree species from Paley Park, however Im trying to show a space closer in size to the actual courtyard in the project. Although Paley Park is small…it’s not quite small enough for this. Thanks though!
I did a courtyard that was slightly larger, but I planted it densely with NE native woodland trees, both semi-mature and saplings.
Are your clients concerned with the size of the tree? The light level? What is the height of the surrounding walls and windows? What are you planning on doing with the ground-plane? Are there any utilities to worry about?
