New build - WSW facing garden
I have just bought a new build which we move into in June. However, as soon as we move in I'd like to have a garden landscaper on hand to do the garden so we can enjoy the summer in it. The builders will just leave it as soil with a patio (see below).
I am a novice when it comes to gardens and wondered if you could help by answering a couple of questions.
1) Where in the garden will get sun? It is WSW facing. Picture above.
2) The builders have agreed to build a patio at the back of the house. Each slab is 45 cm and we need to specify the size. How big would you make this to ensure it gets sun throughout the day?
3) When we get it landscaped would you look to put in any more seating areas or would the patio be sufficient?
We want low maintanence, fake grass and a couple of flower beds. Your advice would be welcome as to design. We have about £3 or 4K to spend on someone doing this for us, but appreciate the fake grass is expensive so design is key.
