I've just bought a house and I'm a bit confused about whether my garden is North facing or South facing. It seems like such an obvious question that I feel like a complete twit being able to work it out, but I've seen a graphic which implies that my original assumption might be incorrect.
My garden is to the South of my house, and since I live in the Northern Hemisphere, this means that the bit of the garden which is closest to my house is in shaddow while the end of the garden gets the sun. Would I be right in thinking that my garden is North Facing? And if so, why does the graphic on the Light Levels Challenge at this site: https://www.bbc.co.uk/gardening/htbg/module1/light1.shtml imply that my garden is actually South Facing?! (to see what I mean, click the link for the Light Levels Challenge, and click "N" at the bottom right - you'll see that the graphic shows the part of the garden which is NEAR the house to be light, while the end is shaded)
