Noob from Lincolnshire

Hi All.

I am new to this forum so I thought I would say hello.

I am in the process of purchasing a new property (My gran sadly passed away and it is her house I am looking to purchase)

It has 3/4 acre of land which over the years has been transformed into a huge lawn (with very little life) I remember back when I was young there where fruit trees, areas of long grass, flowering bushes etc and the insect/bird life was booming. even down to owls nesting in the Lailandii (SP)

I would like to rectify this over time but will probably be looking to you all for help.

To give you a little background on me,

I am 34 years old.

4 kids

Environmental manager (with an Environmental Science Degree)

    How exciting - it sounds wonderful pignut.  Will your 4 kids be able to help with the garden?  We are all willing here to help with advise on things we are familiar with.  Looking forward to hearing your progress and good luck.
