Rented House - Concrete garden
My family and I moved into a rented house with a medium sized back garden, it is primarily concrete (it has an L shaped patch of soil and some soil round the edges. The soil round the edges is full of roots from old trees and bushes while some of the border still has hedges and a fast moving climber plant.The rest is concrete, lots and lots of concrete.I will attach pictures tomorrow morning but I am looking for some advice on adding some greenery to the garden, preferably wildlife friendly but still allowing for a swing.
My initial thoughts are to lift a good proportion of the concrete, spread some soil and add some wood bark or grass seed. Along the L shaped patch of soil I can grow some vegetables and some larger plants and /or trees along the border (after removing as much of the roots as possible.
As the house is rented I am looking for something with minimal cost, I don't mind spending the time but preferably not a lot of money.
Any ideas are appreciated...
