An outdoor living space requires a lot of sunlight to allow the flowers to grow and thrive. But your living space needs the comfort of shade as well. Choose a shaded spot to place a bench or add a children’s area, or a place where family may gather to visit. Thoughtfully place a grouping of trees together to create a relaxing shady spot. 

Trees can provide many practical aspects for out setting. Shade is the primary phase, but they also add decoration and provide height to create privacy. Trees are often grouped with shrubs as they provide vistas of enduring beauty. These features provide beautiful foliage, stunning flowers, and richness in their production of fruits, as well as create a striking view against the sky. Trees have so many uses, but can be limited by the amount of space you have. Therefore it is very important to plan and choose the right tree for your space.  There are many varieties of trees that will serve many of these purposes. An apple tree, for example, provides shade, produces lovely flowers and fragrance, and has the ability to produce fruit. It is both practical and aesthetic. 

You will want to place a tree in a spot that will provide shade during the part of the day when it is most needed. You can determine this location by studying the sun in your own garden setting. 

The average outdoor living room does not have much space for many shade trees, but normally just one or two trees will be sufficient for your room.

Trees that are planted while they are young are much smaller than what they will eventually become. Take into consideration how these trees will look fully grown, when determine the type or tree and the placement of it. You can normally find the height and spread of the tree in a nursery catalog.
