Hi all,

I've moved into a new house which has a lovely garden, however there is an area at the back left of the garden that dips of massively, I don't know why it does this, perhaps because it's next to a protected tree but I don't know.

Not sure what to do with this area, maybe a shed? I would like some better privacy as there is a public park over the fence and with the fence being lower down I can see right into the park. Any ideas welcome, I've attached some pics.

I'd try to make sure something grew on the other side of the fence in that park, a tall shrub or a small tree maybe. More of whatever is coming over the fence on the left might not be bad.

Yeah that's holly on the left. With it being a public park I can't plant whatever I want on the other side. Plus I still would like to do something with this space.

I was suggesting you planted it on your own accord, what's the worst that happens? It gets dug up? That solves your privacy issue at least. I'd probably just make a shade garden in a space like that: hostas, ferns, heuchera, etc...

Yes it's a good idea to plant a few holly's on a Sunday night about a yard from the fence. That allows them to grow quietly and makes your property a bit safer. As for growing in the shade and with a dry soil due to the trees it could be a bit difficult. But a nice garden / potting shed would fit nicely.
