Congratulations on getting the plot   It's a bit grim that there's so much work to do, but pace yourself and do things bit at a time.  Record what you do - take lots of photos - sometimes you're too close to something to see the improvement, but when you look back at photos you'll see how far you've come - and keep reporting in to us to let us know how things are going

We don't have the capability of combining threads but it's  a good idea to flag up the others to make people aware of their existence.

It's like a discussion  on another thread - the word 'weed' used to mean herb or grass (in other words, any plant that wasn't a bush or a tree) - it wasn't until the Middle Ages that it came to mean 'something growing where it's not wanted'.

One of my favourite books is Melvin Bragg's The Adventure of English.
