How do we pick the Right Trees for a corner Town house?

9 years ago

Please help! First time home owner, I believe backyard size is 25' wide by 15' deep!

I am a busy working while taking care of elderly, hence need 'maintenance' free Trees which will add to Nature(attract Birds & Butterflies), yet reasonably affordable! Trees should be Neither too tall, nor too short; backyard is fully sunny facing Northwest in York Region. Currently nothing planted. Looking to first establish the backyard, then hopefully will work on side/front yard.

Had the following in mind:
Smooth Serviceberry
PAGODA Dogwood
Japanese false lilac
Grey dogwood

Will greatly appreciate your advise as we are having a hard time deciding.
Is it too late to plant this year?
Thank you
