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.

cats.hate them.if they are pets then why do people let them poo where ever they cat owners know the meaning of pet,wild animal,domesticated and bone idle?answer  is no,yes,no,YES.

people who own cats without litter trays are like people who let their dogs poo on the pavement but ten times worse,as the dogs don't kill small animals and birds and they don't deficate in peoples gardens.

the government should have all cats dna registered,so when they poo in the garden you can get the neglectful owner fined.most of my neighbours have cats without litter trays,so i asked my neighbour one day where her cat poos and she said she didn't know.i will tell you it was in my garden where my two young kids play.if she doesn't care or know then she isn't fit to own a cat.

I actually enjoy the physicality of gardening but I guess digging ditches isn't too appealing
