Hi Daz

they are heavy duty waney lap panels - I have these at the bottom of my garden. If you put this term as a search you should find what you are looking for

LOL...I nearly had a heart attack when I saw the price in the link...especially when I did the calculation of how many you would need

Could you use the round type tree stakes for the edging? They come in all different diameters so might be good if you need smaller than a telegraph pole and it would be lots cheaper than the poles shown in your link - my local timber yard supplies these, so if you have one nearby it may be worth checking it out.

Cheers for the advice...I sort of got stuck in without a clear idea of what I wanted. I managed to clear a row of hedging that had grown to lanky 20 ft+ and have replaced this with new fencing plus I've now done a plan of what I want to achieve I've split the garden into three thirds with aim of tackling a one third at a time. It sounds as if you're garden is similiar to mine; my lawn is full of moss and I too started to dig over last autumn. Never thought of asking the Council for compost so will ring and ask if my council does the same. I've already got some well rotted manure and am planning on adding that too.  I'll try digging this weekend and see how it goes!!

Most of the soil in my garden is quite good except for one large patch (approx 2m x 2m) near to the house where water 'puddles' on the top. As a novice I've been reading up and the best solution seems to be to improve the soil as it's too compacted.

On the 'What To Do Now' section, it states that I can start to dig in compost but I've also read that you shouldn't dig soil when it's wet! I'm now totally confused

I tried to dig it last year in the spring when it was warm but nearly broke the spade & fork as the ground was just too hard.

Would it really damage the soil if I started to dig now?
