    F. Need for temporary fencing - will definately have to be moved when garden expands in the future
    G. Space has a center hight point and drops off slightly on all four sides.
    H. Desire to be out of the shade of large pine trees to the south along the driveway  

IV. Defining Space

    A. Decided on 50' square as a nice, easily designable space to start
    B. Square is set back 45' from fence around the house and 80' from the edge of the current driveway
