Garden layout


Good evening everyone, hoping someone could help me on this situation. We are looking to purchase plot 12, the corner plot but my main concern is the garden and how much sunlight it will receive? The garden is 12.1x8.9m. We won’t be growing any plants ect. Only going to be used for the summer mainly. 

Thanks In advance

    If I had oprions, I'd not buy a house where the cars had to park one in front of the other

    I agree that could be a stressful situation. If you want a garden to sit in all summer then I would think sunshine is important?

    I wouldn’t buy it because of the turning place right by the side.
    also wouldn’t  like the garden all around the house, I would rather a house with a small frontage and bigger at the back.  I hate tending my front garden.

  • Thanks for the comments but that drawing might be off putting with the pen line. Apologies. It’s the house that’s facing SE

    The front garden faces south east but the rear garden is north-west facing if I’m reading the plan correctly? If you like to sit in the sun during the summer, you may find that your season is quite short as the house will cast shade over any patio by the house and into the garden.

  • Yes that’s right with the NW garden. I think we are going ahead with it. We’re a young couple who are looking for just some sun in the summer really, for bbq’s ect so wouldn’t use it for much more than that. When the suns higher hopefully the house wouldn’t be blocking it as much.

    Your front garden will get most of the sun. It looks like your gardens front and back will be quite over-looked, if that matters to you.

    "I'd not buy a house where the cars had to park one in front of the other"

    @Hostafan1 - does that mean you wouldn't choose street parking and would want a driveway?

    It looks to be a new build, so be aware that the quality of the soil can be pretty terrible, if you do ever choose to plant up.

    Correct. 
     I DID say " if I had options" which is perhaps the most relevant.

    I was just checking if that's what you meant, Hosta.
