Poolside plans
We have sandwiched a pool into a small yard with a northern and eastern brick wall, a patio, and our garage as the 4 sides. The walls are the backs of raised planters and only 6ft. from the pool. We need a tree or bush that can be trained as a tree that will cause root damage to the side of the pool. I prefer multi trunks. I can't find any plans at all for poolside gardens here. We are in Zone 8. Linnie"

Use pyracantha or pears, planted in the ground or in large containers, to make espaliered plants against the east wall. Check google for good instructions on developing the espalier.
