Lilac bush- how much space do I need?

How much space do lilac roots take up. I have a small front yard, and am wondering if i have room to plant a lilac bush. How far from the house should it be. I have no experience with this, as you can tell, and any advice would be appreciated. Thank you!

Hi Bscott,

It all depends on which variety you choose. I would say to allow a 6' to 10' area for your lilacs.

Thanks for the reply. I went to a local nursery and they helped me pick out have.
