i wonder if any could give suggestions or steer me in direction of any good books.
i am not a gardener, but i am moving into a converted farmhouse with an acre of garden !!! and the thought is quite intimidating ; although for many gardeners i would suggest a tremendous opportunity.
Garden is in essence a complete blank canvass. the garden is effectively all lawn, albeit overgown as the house has been empty for 6 month +.
The garden slopes down towards a nice pond at the bottom, and (without checking compass) east facing.
my thoughts were to 'section' the garden off into areas..eg meadow, orchard. i have 2 daughters ( 6 & 8) so want to make it fun for them too.
any suggestions would be appreciated
