A deciduous tree in the south window
How to soften the cold winters and hot summers is to plant a deciduous tree near the windows on the south side of the house.
The deciduous species of tree protects the interior from the sun's rays in summer while completely letting them in in winter. So much for bio-automatics!
And the trees also change their leaves in fall, bloom brilliantly in spring, smell and even produce fruit in summer. And in winter, a graphic pattern of trunk and branches appears in the window. The trees look especially good in large and huge second-story windows.
Clear maple, rowan, linden, plum, oak, willow - ideal when the tree is proportionate to the plot and the house, and the shape of the crown and planting location fits the facade.
