Hi all, was hoping for some help. I am about to start work on my garden for the first time. Bought it last year and have done nothing outside and have have never even used a spade its a tip! I have read through some advice and everyone seems to say start a bit at a time, but i dont know where to start. I have a patio next to the house witha few weed. A workshop and decking next to this which are in need of a good paint, an overgrown lawn then with all sorts of junk in there, bins, doors, bricks etc! to top it off at the end of the garden the fencing has fallen down due to massive amounts of brambles etc from council land! (should i inform the council or leave it as it is a good barrier from some dodgy council houses!) Stupid question should i start from the furthest part of the house first? i am not very good at diy, so is putting up a fence a good idea with all the brambles behind or could i plant a hedge or something? sorry for the naive questions but would be good if someone could give me some tips!
