Hello All,
I've just started into my second year looking after a small front lawn and moderate sized urban back garden.
To try to avoid some of my novice mistakes last year, I think registering here may not be a bad idea!

I'm already banging my head against a wall about my front lawn/flower bed, I let it go somewhat towards the end of last year and have now started about rectifying it...

I have 2 pics I'd like to post, should I go ahead here or down in the lawn section? (I'm really looking for guidance on the flower bed side of things! Although my lawn has really never picked up either)

Hello
This is a Fantastic site to help Thanks
I had a front garden 7m x 5m
I dug all the grass out of the lawn(not good) saved as much clay put down mypex then some pea gravel made a 2m circle in the center flower bed1
Then collected rocks for the edging all the 2mkcircle and round a U shaped egde border bed 2
and my better half picked the flowers and thats how i started to love gardening
Mixed fire ash in with the compost to give a boost all thats free is good Smile
Happy Gardening
Stoney
