Clearing overgrown garden of weeds and grass
I have been working away for quite some time and have returned to a garden which of course is overgrown with long grass and all kinds of weeds:
I have limited gardening experience and tools, comprising of a fairly useless electric strimmer, electric lawnmower and basic hand tools. I am hoping to completely clear the garden, so I can level it before part gravelling and part patio, possibly with some low maintenance beds around the border.
Can anybody advise the easiest and most cost effective way to clear the garden myself? Can this be done using a high strength weed killer?
Advice on specific products and where they can be purchased from would be appreciated. Thanks in advance for any input - all opinions are appreciated.
