I had work done on the garden and cordoned a patch off with sleepers to use as a bed. The problem is the soil within is in bad shape, loads and loads of old root systems from previous flowers and plants, weeds coming through underground from next door etc. Is there anything I can do over the winter to help make the soil better for the Spring? ie cover with a sheet etc, or should I bite the bullet, remove as much as I can and start again with fresh soil/manure?
Thanks for any advice
