we we have recently bought a new house. Our garden is not huge, but is massively over grown and has fallen victim to ground elder.
We were thinking of getting the garden professionally cleared, but we have decided to try and tackle it ourselves. It will be a long term project, but I am keen to clear as much as possible to let our children be able to use the grass areas (once we have managed to cut the grass).
what is the best way to start? A strong weed killer followed by a strummer and fork? What weed killers are pet and child friendly? Am I best to apply the weed killer in the evening?
any advice gratefully be received!
