Our municipality says that our garden is too big, according too the cadastre. If we can prove the situation has been already there for twenty years, then they won't charge us for the extra space our garden takes in.

As this is the case, I'm looking to prove this. I have already tried Google Earth and Google Earth Engine, where the first didn't go back enough and the latter wasn't detailed enough. So I am looking for any source of detailed satellite/aerial photos of the southern part of the Netherlands. They don't have to be free per se, altough it is a pro.

After request: the garden is about 40m² and the dispute is about an area of 10m² therefore 1pixel to 1m² resolution would be sufficient

    It would help if you mentioned the minimum resolution you require. How big is the garden?

In addition to the answer by @bugmenot123, you could try the Kadaster https://www.kadaster.nl/-/luchtfoto-s


You can search USGS Earth Explorer. They list a variety of sources, both free and commercial.
