I love big fig trees as far as their looks

Make a statement With the size of properties shrinking dramatically, many homes now have compact courtyards instead of sprawling gardens. If this sounds familiar, you can usually still find space for a statement tree in even the smallest space. Here, a statuesque fig takes centre stage and is illuminated from below by outdoor lights. Tip: Use a root barrier for trees planted close to houses, walls and plumbing.

6. Fig tree Fig trees can be both stunning and tasty, though please be wary of their far-spreading roots, which can absorb moisture from the clay soils on which your footings may be founded. If planning to plant fig trees near your building, ensure you consult an arborist, engineer and architect in order to reduce any risk of cracking to walls due to footing movements. There are all different methods to ensure your footings aren’t damaged, including bore piers, cantilevering slabs, screw piles, root-inhibiting chemicals (non-toxic to the environment) and root barriers that can extend down to depths of two metres-plus. Ensure that whoever installs your root barriers does so correctly to the proper depth and ‘zone of influence’.
