Take the Gardener's Question Time advice and plan your garden out with bamboo sticks and a flexible hose on the ground.
I would wait until your building work is done, as depending on the type of work it will probably spread further than you think and builders can be very careless about what they stand on.
You don't say what type of garden you want. Children, pets, easy-care, colourful, muted, for entertaining, relaxing, pond? That's just for starters!
