Is it possible to reflect northern light from the front of your property into a south facing backyard?? Answered

The backyard is dark and damp and the front of the house facing the street is bright and sunny. Can you reflect the front sun into the back yard

Is it maybe because your backyard is overgrown that it's not getting much light? There's a whole industry around topping trees and updating your landscaping, could be just the fix you're looking for!

You must be in the Southern Hemisphere. It's theoretically possible to do what you want, just erect a sufficently large mirror on your roof. However, you will probably run into all sorts of permitting and zoning issues that make it impossible in practice.
