lovely thing but 3 or 4 metres from the house is too close in my opinion. It is an aggressive/ vigorous tree and down here in Cornwall I have seen them pretty big but always in large gardens 

how much further away from the house can you plant it?  

Often projected maximum sizes of trees are underplayed......trees and shrubs rarely stop growing anyway

you can prune but it spoils the shape.

perhaps others have a different view 

good luck

disappointed to read some of the jumped-to-conclusions about me from people 

I thought were friends though.

Punkdoc, a big man indeed and I appreciate that

Coincidentally Lucid I have been using it as a mulch too in some places simply to suppress weeds.  it does dry out but I mix it with pelleted chicken manure and it adds bulk esp when wet.
