Could someone give me some ideas on how to attract sunlight into my back yard. It only catches a small corner shaft of sunlight as the sun goes down in the evening. All daytime sunlight is concentrated on my little front garden. Have just had a new fence erected and decking down on the ground. My roof top has a very shallow pitch and I thought there might be a way of catching the sunlight and bringing it over the roof so to speak i.e., perhaps something like a mirror mounted on the back fence. I have to say that cost would be a criteria so nothing expensive would suit. My cottage sits diagonally on the centra point of the compass. i.e front left is East standing at the front door and back left is west standing at the back door. I want to put pots and a sitting area out there this summer but plants would have a hard time getting no sun and so would I. I would be most grateful for any advice. I attach a photo taken this winter to give some idea of the size of the yard. It is very small. Many thanks Beryl ps I hope the photos have attached - doesn't look as though they have.
