This is an appeal for help with my wilderness. Briefly, I am studying for a degree, my other half is not into gardening, and our garden is long at 100 feet or so. I would like to turn this area at least into something that will be low-maintenance and maybe allow us to sit on it in the summer. It slopes gently downwards and is south-facing. I'm not sure that I could face the maintenance of a lawn. Any ideas would be gratefully received!
