How to help wildlife in unused 125m2 garden area
I'm looking for some advice, please.
I have my first garden and it's bigger than any garden I ever imagined I'd own I'm at the very early stages of learning and I'm enjoying it immensely!
I have a piece of ground that I hope will become a veg patch complete with polytunnel but that will be some time away and so I'd like to use the ground productively to support wildlife while I focus on the rest of the garden.
It's about 125m2 and it has been filled last year with amazing compost from a local composting site. It's very fertile and I'm sorry to say that the weeds have won- thistles and docken seem to dominate. If I could turn back time
I initally thought a wildflower meadow makes sense but I mostly read that it needs to be poor soil! I need the soil to remain as fertile as possible for the eventual veg patch and so this seems to knock that idea out.
Grass would be an easy way to maintain it but it just seems like such a waste.
Does anyone have any insights or ideas?
Thank you in advance for any of your suggestions and for sharing your knowledge with me. I hope in a few years (or more) as I gain knowledge that I can help one day too!
