Small north facing garden design

2 years ago

Hi folks,

Looking for some inspiration and ideas.

I bought this house last year and most of the inside is done so now I'm looking at the outside. I have some time off and wondered would I be able to make myself a nice back garden before the summer.

Some details

Garden is north facing

Size is roughly 8m long x 6.5m wide (26ft long x 21 ft wide)

Back wall 2m (7ft ) high

East side wall 1.8 (6ft) high

West side wooden fence 1.8m (6ft)high

Oil tank and boiler are not movable.

Grass is optional but I would love some nice flowers/bedding

A new shed is required and I'm thinking something small maybe 6ft x 4ft just to store some stuff.

The sunniest part is typically backwall on the oiltank/boiler side as it gets the last of the west light and high summer sun.

The concrete you see at the bottom which is in a hollow is the base of an old block shed that used to be there.

All I really want is this space to look 'nice' - it's never going to be a football field, nor is it going to be a big outdoor dining area... I would just like some colour through flowers to take away all the grey and space to put out a little table and chairs.

Any suggestions where to even start with this? Or what I could do with it? How do I even out all the levels and surfaces?
