Yes, I agree - Metasequoia glyptostroboides, Cedrus sp., Taxus sp., Alder sp., you can also try Acer rubrum as a nice deciduous addition, but not if you have clay!

Hi ponddigger,

So the drainage that I plan to put is marked in red.
Also the ground for patio would be prepared properly - gravel, sand etc.

Thanks!
