edging ideas

we basically have little time to keep cutting grass etc, although the area i am currently doing is not quite half the front lawn so the other side may stay but be less an area then now.

hello, very new to any gardening! we are currently covering the front lawn with aggregate, but it needs some kind of edging to help keep it tidy and keep the slate in etc. i went and had a look at some edging stones at b&q and home base. i was looking mainly at the simple stone with a rounded top. i was looking for some other ideas? this for our garden was costing roughly£70 tops not including any planters to fill any gaps at corners etc. thank you in advance

Well the decking is some way away at the moment anyway so will cross that bridge when I come to it! I am looking t different sheds and companies to max out the space I have but at a good price. If the rain holds off on Saturday(unlikely) I will start flattening the space etc but at this rate won't be done for ages! Grrrr

oh good to know i dont have to dig it all up! just the levelling which is what i was thinking of doing before ithought i had better ask a few questions. i have been put off decking(was going to put some elsewhere in the garden) by hearing rats like damp wood?

think i will be looking at some paving going down then, will try and atleast and get it levelled and the membrade down at the weekend then take it from there.

as for the size of shed, well we cant fit one much bigger in the space we have, at most we can fit 5' wide in and thats pushing it a bit.

hello, this is my first post so please be kind!

i have an area of the garden where we want to put a shed(only 6x4 probably) then next to that a space for our new gas bbq. the garden is grass currently but sloping and uneven, so....

what is best to do? do i need to dig the top soil up and play some kind of paving or gravel to put both on? it need leveling no matter what, the slope is not too bad in the area the shed is going  so hoping not too much work to be done. really want to get the project going as the bbq is in our way lol any help very very welcome, thank you.
