Garden features/preferences advice
So...I'm canvassing the advice & opinions of others on what garden features or preferences (aspect, neighbours etc) you would have as a bare minimum.
I'm moving house, and most of the reason is to get a bigger garden. We currently have a small terraced garden which I've filled to the brim. However, I live in a very pricey part of the country and my budget sadly doesn't match my expectations, so I'm having to work out compromises.
If you were having to compromise on the garden, what would be the bare minimum that you would look for? eg aspect, sod-the-house-just-get-a-huge-garden, distance from neighbours, ability to have distinct areas of the garden (ie "rooms"), water features, whether it fits a greenhouse or not?
Or, on the flip side, what are the absolute no's about the garden that would make you rule out buying the house? Mine are (so far) narrow gardens so you can't get away from neighbours, evidence of young children immediately next door (trampolines against the fence!), being overlooked.
I'd really welcome opinions, as I've overthought this topic so much I need new input!!
