Help! North or West facing garden?
I'm very lucky to be able to choose a plot for our new house and there is either a North facing garden that is surrounded by only by other gardens (the house itself is 2 story) or a West facing garden with another house at the NW corner that comes across half of the bottom of the garden (no overlooking Windows fortunately). The house isn't built yet and there aren't any others to compare it to. Our current house is South facing and it's unbearable in summer (no shade at all) but I do like the sunshine, especially to eat outside in an evening- please give me advice!!!
