We have removed over 30 tons of rubbish from this garden over the last 18 years. and this morning I noticed that on top of one of the moles hills was a piece of house brick, a broken scent bottle and the plastic handle from a child's cowboy gun, all fairly normal for our soil I hasten to add.
Sorry, Bill, but leaving a garden in that state is not uncommon. The advice given is sound. I would also add that slow and steady, bit at a time is better than killing yourself trying to do it all in one go. After all, gardening is supposed to be a pleasure, not a backbreaking chore which leads you to hate doing it at all.
