Thanks. That thought has crossed my mind, ie re the raised beds. I'm guessing though that I could get that tarmac up for what would still come in the hundreds of £s mark (rather than a 4 figure amount of money) and could just then plant what I want wherever/whenever I want subsequently in the "saved" area of garden and meanwhile put down some woodchippings or the like to give me a decent surface to walk on (and, presumably, would equal I wouldnt end up "compacting" the soil back down again?).

 

Does that sound like a plan?

Hi

 

Part of the garden is tarmaced currently and I am wondering whether anyone else has had to get up tarmac on part of their garden in order to turn it back into "proper" garden as such.

 

There are various questions here:

- Wondering how far down underneath ground level anything like electric cables, broadband cables, etc might be from the pov of digging up that tarmac surface.

 

- Suggestions as to how to best to restore the soil that has been under tarmac for some years now

 

etc.

 

Thank you.
