Needing some assistance in this big project!
Hello fellow gardeners!
I'm from Rotterdam, The Netherlands and I'm a 22 year old graphic design student with maybe a new love for gardening.
I've recently moved into a house with 5 other students and we have this large garden wich was totally overgrown. After I got the permission of the landlord to work in the garden I started to remove all of the overgrown plants. I've searched what this plant was and it turned out to be 'Japanese Knotweed' which seemed to be very hard to get rid of.
Anyways, at the moment I'm trying to make a plan on how to get this garden going.
Because first I would like to make a nice grass lawn and after that I want to expand it with beddings for vegetables etc... But how do I know if my ground is good enough for grass? How do I prepare my ground? Because if I start digging a hole the ground seems a bit like clay.
Should I dig out the whole garden and level it? Oh yeah, almost forgot to mention that I don't have any good equipment for gardening...
Sorry, a lot of questions but maybe you guys can give me some advices on this.
I would appreciate it dearly!
