Best way forward
Help and ideas needed. We are redesiging our front garden. At present it has a narrow drive and a poor spongy lawn. The plan is to lift the lawn and make a large cottage garden flower bed and increase the parking space. The area that wont be bed will just be gravel for parking. What is the best thing to do to improve the soil structure before planting? Also what would be good vocal point plants to put in for cottage style? The overall bed size would be 3m x 6m with a 1m high privet at the back and at one side.
