Default Do it with mirrors?

Our city backyard garden is shaded by a six foot high wall on the south, and beyond that by a two-story neighboring house. There is limited sun in the morning and late afternoon, but no sun on the garden itself in the middle of the day.

My wife's idea is to put mirrors up on the south wall of the house to reflect sunlight into the garden. I don't know if that will work from a biological viewpoint, nor do I know what kind of mirrors to use. Large glass mirrors are likely to be too expensive, though, and I am thinking about some kind of reflective plastic sheeting.

Can we do it with mirrors?

Yes, I know this is not a gardening forum, but you guys and gals know lots of things, and love to talk about many different subjects.
