Clearing gravel and roots ready for lawn

Posted: 05/06/2013 at 21:06

Photos would help. With all the weed roots I would allow them to grow for a few weeks, then once they have foliage you can treat it with a weedkiller that does not affect the soil, just the plant.

I am always intrigued by the colours that people like in their gardens; two of my neighbours like very deep reds/pinks with a very small amount of white. I prefer blue/yellow/orange/cream/white and NO shocking pink and will only tolerate a small amount of Chinese laquer/brick red. But the alliums that I adore for their shapes are usually a sort of mauve, so I have learnt to like that. A friend is convinced that when a plant nursery sees me coming they swap all the labels around; so I ended up with magenta aubretia that was supposed to be blue What colour combinations does everyone else like?

Why does it say I've reviewed all these plants?
