There are other pears like the Cleveland pear that they could be which are a better tree than the Bradford. The Bradford does have a problem with splitting that other varieties don't.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

In a more modern setting, shorn evergreens and flowering trees achieve the same effect.
5. Plant shade trees. Exercise your green thumb by planting shade trees around the house. Design associate Andrew Spiering of Terra Ferma Landscapes suggests casting shadows on the southwestern exposure of the home using large deciduous trees, like oaks, sycamores and elms. "Other ideas include increasing humidity around the home using layered planting or reducing hardscape," he says.
Standard trees, this time pear trees, are again used in a modern parterre-style entry courtyard.The indirect route along the pathway to the front entrance gives a wonderful vista through to the wall of golden conifers.

Trees up against house (would be your fence in back) would cover the fence. Lower plants below would then allow less space for planting and more for patio. Creeping fig against the fence to 'green' it up.
