Are you interested in putting up a tree  in your backyard. Are you worried that the tree will destroy your garden, as it grows bigger. Well, the solution for that is an outdoor container. Trees in outdoor containers are just perfect for families with small houses. The difficult part is finding the right tree for these containers. The container  might be too small or too big for the tree. To find the right tree, you can do the following.

Research as much as you can about the tree:
1. Learn about the trees ability to survive a restricted root zone. Trees like the lemon do not need a big area to survive. Although these trees have the innate ability to survive a restricted root zone you cannot find them growing in the wild these days. Alternatively, there are trees around your area that might have grown smaller because of natural restriction like the ones that grew on rocks.

2. Will the tree survive your weather? Areas like Colorado, Egypt, and Dubai have a significant desert area. If you live in these areas, you might want to choose trees like a cactus or a palm tree since there are many of these trees around your area. Unless you have a place that can provide your tree with a controlled environment, you should think twice about using evergreen trees.

3. Find trees that do not grow very big. Acacia trees, redwoods, and aspen trees are incredibly big. Putting them in a container will definitely destroy them or the container. To find the right-sized tree for an outdoor container, you must look for a bonsai if you want to insist on using the big trees. But if you want a tree that will not cost you much, look for trees common in your area that do not grow taller than your house. An example is a guava tree or a pine tree.

4. Ask a horticulturist if the tree can be contained. If you are planning to use a particular tree to put in your pot, you can ask a horticulturist if it can survive. If you are one of those people who want unique plants  in their garden or backyard, consulting an expert first is actually a wise move since it will cost you money to transport the tree. You do not want to find out about this information after spending the money already.
