Think About Growing ItThe first thing that pops into most garden owners’ heads when they think about adding something between them and the heavens is shade. Even the most ardent sun worshipper needs a break from the rays once in a while. And with people becoming more conscientious about avoiding excessive exposure to ultraviolet rays, garden ceilings make good sense, healthwise. A bit of cloud cover is a welcome treat on a hot day, but most of us lack the influence with Mother Nature to summon the clouds when needed. That’s where trees play an important role. Aside from their natural beauty and graceful movement, they can cool the ground below (and your afternoon guests) by as much as 15 degrees. If your garden already has mature trees that cast shade where you need it, you’re in luck. If not, consider whether you can move your outdoor dining or reading room into that welcoming pool of shadow. In my design work, I sometimes use garden ceilings to set the mood by creating a feeling of enclosure and defining spaces within a larger area. Unlike with walls or hedges, the outward views are preserved.Houzz guides to great trees for your landscape
