Hi all , new to the forum and gardening I have just moved into a house and I don't have a clue were to start with the borders , is it just a case of pull weeds out ? And do I need to turn the soil over or break it up ? What is the best way to straighten the edges up ? Any help greatly appreciated.
Are you planning to reshape the border with curves or keep as it is?
If you just want to straighten you need a guide line, some string between 2 canes pushed in and a length of wood you lay down and with a spade used the opposite way you would to dig just cut off the edge. Shake the soil off and put the rest in your green bin.
If you fancy some curves use a hose pipe to lay out the shape
Come back for plant identification with photos but not all at once,
I’ve always used a plank to lay along where I want the border to come to and then use that as a guide to dig and straighten things up. Failing that a long piece of string stretched from a peg at each end of the border would help to guide you.
