Most trees should be planted at least 5 feet or more from any structures. For more information on growing mangos, this article will help: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/fruits/mango/growing-mango-trees.htm

I always suggest that all plants be located 1/2 mature diameter from any structure, walk or drive. Example, it your mango will get 20' wide, it should be planted a minimum of 10' from your wall. There are many varieties and sizes, the distance will depend on your selection.
