Shading of Hardscapes

On this site, the only hardscape to shade was the house and the driveway. Our grand Deodora Cedar served to shade the home from the western sun and we are planting two native Parsley Hawthorns to shade the southern sun (we chose these native trees because they will only grow + 20' height which will not shade the solar panels on the roof). We only had 20 linear feet of driveway to shade and we accomplished that with a Native Dogwood.
