Ideas for my manky lawn and old car port

If its as yucky as you say, I don't think he would lie on it. He'd be better off with a free standing hammock.

You can deck the area where the carpot was, but have a step down where you've got the metal ramp.

Where the brick wall is you could have a bed and plant with a small shrub/perennial/bulb mix.

I can't tell if the rest of the grass is level with the concrete. If it was, you could have decking the width of the garden.

If you don't want to keep the grass you could cover with double membrane and gravel or slate it, maybe have a couple of planting pockets.

Those seed heads look like acanthus, but I can't see any of their leaves so it might be acanthus spinosa.

Why not? Try all the ones local to you, and it might be worth saying 'so and so are donating x'. Maybe offer to take all their reduced plants or ones they have a glut of, off their hands

Shrub ID

This has been growing in our hawthorn hedge and this year decided to be 12ft tall with read berries. I thought it migh be a pyracantha but not sure which one as there are no thorns.

Mystery plant at the bottom of my garden. I've never seen this before and it isn't something I planted.
