New gardener here, living on Mid North Coast of NSW for climate reference.
We have brought our back garden a long way (I feel) however the rear of the house faces due west. We have no good sized trees in the back yard (besides a Lassiandra in the north corner)
What I would love is to plant a large growing shade tree to sit in the middle of the fence line that will grow and allow us to sit in the yard or play with the kids in the grass in the summer afternoon that provides some nice dapple shade.
I like the look and soft foliage of Poincianas, though am open to any suggestions better suited to our climate or more native.
Also low maintenance and low water usage is preferred.
Thanks all in advance.
