North Facing Garden Design

When creating a north facing garden design positioning in relation to the sun is key. Care should be taken to ensure that patios are placed in a position where they receive the optimum sunlight which is unlikely to be immediately to the rear of the property.

Additionally the choice of planting will be dependent upon the amount of sun and shade in the garden as well as the soil conditions. It maybe that some areas of the garden will be in constant shade and therefore planting of items such as ferns maybe more appropriate.
