Reducing the size of my borders
I would like to reduce the size of my borders to reduce maintenance (weeding in particular!). The garden is about 80ft long and the borders about 2-3 feet wide. Is the best way to do this to buy some topsoil and turf and gradually reduce the size by adding to the lawn? One side is mainly planted with shrubs but the other is a mixture of planting - roses, peony, montbretia, foxglove, fuchsia, wisteria, hosta and several others, including a cordyline which started in a small pot and is now 3 'trees' and a fourth shoot on its way! I do want to keep some of the plants but some can go. In particular, I would like to reduce the width where the montbretia has spread. Thank you.
