Hi,

I have dug up my whole front garden over the past couple of days and now have a blank canvas to start growing my own fruit&veg and some flowers. I will be posting photos of my progress from the start as in now until I get to eat it all. I am hoping people will enjoy what I do and can offer advice if its needed. I'll post some pics of the blank canvas later. All suggestions and advice welcome.

Thanks,
Jason.

It's almost ready now Michael thanks for asking. I don't know if grass or bark chipings would be best for the gaps.

Use bark chippings. I think it'll look better.

Neat job. I agree with Energise - go with bark chippings, grass might invade.

Bark is best it'll also rot down over the years and you can shovel it into the beds as you lose material there. I would be concerned about passers by messing with your set up. Not to mention stolen produce, but i suppose it depends on the neighbourhood you live in. Best of luck with it looks like a great start.
