If you have a full sun area, the only way to create shade is by planting trees. If you have a small area, choose small trees such as the Dogwood, Cherry, or Apple. Shade can be added to large areas by planting White Birch, Weeping Willow or Evergreens.
Be mindful of where you plant your trees when creating shade. Carefully consider your site, not only today, but twenty years from now. Will the tree you are planting four feet from your house today be a suitable and safe location years down the road when it is fully grown?
