It does not necessarily mean the month of May Rodgy-dodge.

The Hawthorn tree gives its beautiful display of flowers in late April/early May. It is known as the May Tree and the blossom itself is called May. Using that allusion, 'till May is out' could mean, 'until the hawthorn is out [in bloom]'.

I am stumped. I thought maybe squirrels but they don't eat into the wood. It's a bit too high up for rabbits, could it be badger looking for grubs?

Welcome Carlos Ibbotson

I would scrap the decking idea and get a greenhouse. Its much more useful. The lawn area will be the best place to be sat out in.

You have a lot of work to do there and a lot of rubble to shift. I wonder if some can be reused.
