We are first time home owners, young and absolute novices to the gardening world!
Above is the view of our back garden. Hoping for some advice and suggestions about what we can do. I have taken out all the plants from the front bed - I plan to sow this is into grass for more of a lawn.
Down the side I have removed two ever green troublesome trees and I plan to run a 2 foot wide bed along the length of the side fence and have some nice plants and climbers. 2 foot wide is basically as far as the green plant in the middle of the garden on the right comes out currently.
Out of shot (on the far left), there is a long bed which I plan to grow vegetables in.
Along the back row I will put in a 6 foot fence to close it off - as it stands you can just walk into either neighbours garden and someone's pet keeps pooping at the end of the garden!!
At this stage just hoping for any tips or advice on what you think would be good to do. I want to keep as much lawn as possible ideally.
The lawn is yellow in places and a bit spongy, I probably need to aerate it? There are small patches here and there which need reseeding etc. Its a south facing garden so it sees quite a bit of sun which is good!
Any help or tips is much appreciated.
