Here in Australia we use the cupaniopsis anacardioides – Tuckeroo…alot, almost every new carpark space for shopping centres and commericial spaces have them. They are normally planted as a 100lt when construction of the carpark is taking place, so there is still plenty of growing room for the roots. If you carpark is existing it may need a larger excavtion (almost one car space) to recondition the soil underneath, then new re compaction material and asphalt.
If you want sometime showy, as in colourful I would plant an ixora coccinea, or hybiscus species. It would also be my suggestion to definately get some ficus primula over the fake rocks, this will definatly make more realistic. If colour was not your thing than i would go a colocasia (elephants ear plant) which once estamblished should look cool with a bit of the water drops running over the top and cascading down the plant as well.
All these suggestions or based on the perfect site that i have pictured in my head, you may have to keep other enviromental factors in mind. Good luck, Post a pic if ya can.
From my experiences it is not the draw from a chimney that you should be concentrating on. Smoke is always going to occur from a fire, you just need to control it enough so it does not get into everybodies eyes. HOW? great question, I am glad you asked… Control the wind and you control the dirrection of smoke. This can be done with a screen of some sorts close to your pit, or it your clients budget is a bit bigger a stone feature wall. BOOM problem solved.
