New house, new to gardening - where to begin?
New to the forum and fairly new to gardening,it looks like a great forum and I’ve been browsing the forum for ideas but any advice is welcome.
I’ve just moved into a new house “up north” with a medium sized garden – its in a bit of an “L” shape with a section down the side of the house. Unfortunately it was quite overgrown and is on a bit of a slope. I’ve managed to clear out most of the weeds and cut back on the overgrowth a bit but I’m at a bit of a loss as to what to do with it now.
My main thought was to try and plant a border along the bare fence but was wondering if the slope might cause problems? Would it be feasible and would I need some sort of wooden edging?
As for all the larger trees at the back I will probably get someone in to tidy those up before the end of summer until I know what to do and acquire the correct equipment. Any other suggestions most welcome!
