add-on garden although small would have rare full sun
I have included a couple of pictures showing two different views of my small front yard (as of October 24). I know the remaining jigsaw sections currently having lawn is small in terms of area but what is very desirable is the aspect from the sidewalk up to the line joining the lamp post to the evergreen yew is FULL sun i.e. sun from 10 am until 6 pm. I have no area in my much larger back yard which has much more extensive gardens that gets full sun so I would like to add a garden (albeit small) to this front yard which can support wonderful full sun plants.
My first thought as you can see from the red outline is butting up against the existing interlock on the sidewalk side of the lamp post and going out on an angle towards this sidewalk.
What do you think and is there another configuration I should consider? (I cant get too close to the driveway as it still is used by 'goofy' teenagers for basketball).
[You can see the neighbour's lot line in the first picture ie the straight line of cut grass on the right side.]
