I'm thinking about installing a shed and some small trees along my fence border with my neighbor. Currently the garden looks like this: Whilst I am not against them having entertainment devices for their kids like the jungle gym etc, I would quite like to get back some of the privacy in my garden. To the left is my other neighbors garage and then a fence, so my patio area is reasonably private if I screen the right side a bit. This is my current professional design/initial thoughts: I'd really like to take out all of the grass from the corner of the garage right along to the back fence. Then put in a shed, put down a couple of trees that don't grow too crazy but can hit 8 feet or so quite comfortably and provide some good cover. I'd probably replace most of that grass I take out with that bark covering, it's not as nice as a good flower bed but I am definitely not green fingered so lower maintenance = better for me. The distance from the fence to that garage corner is 3.2M, from that same corner to the rear fence is around 7.5M (the fence panels are 3M wide, and there are 2.5 of them). Would this be a good plan, or should I adjust this somehow? I have considered putting the shed right alongside the garage but there would need to be a gap of a ft or 2 as the drainage pipe comes down along that wall. I understand that any shed I Install can be reasonably up to around 2.5M (8.2 ft) high under permitted development rules, that fence is 6ft so just over 8ft would definitely cover most of my screening requirements, pitch of the roof pending. Not sure what the best types of small trees to install are, I don't want anything that grows crazy fast or big but I'd like it to have a nice foliage cover in the 6-8ft height region. Probably need to add some kind of edging where the lawn meets the edge of where I removed the grass from before. Later on I want to put in a decent patio so would probably look to extend that out into the garden a bit and possibly have it leading down to the shed.
