Hi all, sorry if this is a cross post, I'd be surprised if it hasn't been covered somewhere before, but I couldn't find it.
We have recently aquired a garden which was a bit neglected and overgrown, I am a complete newbie and would appreciate a bit of advice. There are a couple of areas which are heavily overgrown with weeds that I would like to try to reclaim to grow stuff in. Is it possible to use weedkiller to kill everything back and dig it through, or would the weeds need completely removed? I am not scared of a bit of work, but removing the weeds individually would be impractical, and I am concerned that I would need to replace a fairly large amount of topsoil if I were to dig them out.
I am in no particular rush do do anything with it this year but would be nice to have it ready for next year.
