Hi Cpb, Heathers like a neutral soil so if you were to build a raised bed of lime free compost and add lots of peat you would get a dazzling display of colour and if you want to propagate them just put some peat over the plant in the spring new rooted shoots will appear by autumn , Adrian Bloom 


Which grass seed to use???

The picture tells me you have children, so I suggest you get seed for a hard wearing grass with some shade tolerance and follow the instructions

Hi, well before you start planing what goes where I would rake out the soil and remove any and all couch grass roots and be careful as any breakages ,you will have new plants growing from the smallest stem then take out any large stones and large sticks ,then brake up any clumps of soil. By the looks of things me thinks you will need a lot more soil .

happy Gardening.
