Any chance of a pic?

I can't see what makes this garden 'unusable'.

Magpies on the increase?

Young magpies like to hang about together from this time of year onwards.

Yew every time!

Small woman big lawn problem

I think it might be wise to do a bit of this at a time - 150sq m is quite a lot of rubble. Perhaps try to do the third of the plot nearest the house/in the sun or the least challenging bit. It will give you a sense of achievement.

Problem with young Pine(?) tree

Just to start from scratch, what is the soil like, what sort of container was the tree in at the nursery, how have you watered it since it was planted, and whereabouts in the country (roughly) are you?

Fencing alternatives - Ivy?

I'm really surprised that the local authority has insisted on an item in your deeds that effectively gives you no control over your own boundaries - indeed, how do you know exactly where your boundary is? My first stop would be the planning department at the LA. It's not unusual for there to be restrictions at the front, for 'street scene' and visibility reasons, but not at the rear. How do you keep your neighbours' goat off your flowerbeds?
