While there is plenty of space between the houses, the area that is legally mine to plant in is very narrow so I need to select a tree that will not be so wide as to encroach on the house. I have about 12' to play with if I plant right to the property's edge. Naturally, I would like a low water tree.
Here are some smaller trees that could work for you:
Palo Blanco - Acacia willardiana
Texas Mountain Laurel - Sophora secundiflora
Coral Gum - Eucalyptus torquata
Mulga - Acacia anuera
All of them are low water use, and work well in our area.
