Just finished the job i was dreading turning over the front garden which had not been done in 30 years was polythyne with red chips on top when imoved into the house. Since i took up gardening in Sept done the back first but to my surprise the soil in the front garden was really good stuff just crumbled and has some sand through it as well. Now have to rake it level ready for planting next week with perennials & annuals got alot of plants and seeds in my greenhouse ready to go have had them outside during the daytime for the last 3 days.
