starting from scratch!
Having lived here 20+ years and had children, animals, trampolines and paddling pools, the time has come to reclaim our garden. It is a fairly standard square of grass with beds down one side and two sheds at the bottom. One wall is the concrete block wall of our neighbours garage which we covered with ivy. This has to go! We also have bamboo which has spread from next door. I understand this is not good and should go too? My main question is where do I start and when?! The grass is horrid, there are a few plants I would like to keep, but a large cherry tree which should also go. Ideally as I am a complete beginner, I would like low maintenance but some colour, is that possible? Oh, and pond would be nice but may be asking too much! Many thanks in advance.
