Welcome, susannn, the main thing is to enjoy your garden and to have patience.....and take lots of "before" photos as you'll have so much fun looking at them in a couple of years' time !

Hi and welcome susann10. I agree with Sive, you can't take too may pictures, especially starting with a blank patch. They won't mean anything this year, but look back in two to three years, you will really appreciate the progress. Have fun!

I was made to feel very welcome !! hope you are too!!

I would start by a drawing of your garden and a plan of what you want in it like flowers or vegtables. Start by getting rid of the rubbage and clearing out the whole space you want to work in. this will take a day or two. start to dig and remove all grass and weeds. you should now have just clay so its up to you now to plan your garden the way you want it - Best of luck !!!!!!!!!

Ah thanks everyone, was on the net last night and i found a supplier of raised beds so thats my first plan. Gonna take them pic's later as suggested. The before and after will hopefully be good. But as we all know too well rome wasn't built in a day.

for a start concentrate on a small area even a square yard and dig it well and be satisfied it is good soil and try simple things first and work out bigger from there. Start with broad beans, potatoes or cabbage plants. get rid of weeds first and get good depth of soil 10-12 inches
