Don't get me started! Behind the camera, I did the other beds over the past 2 years. I literally dug out good 15"-18" down and removed hundreds of bags of solid clay (bricks would be proud!!!) and replaced with over 2000 litres of compost/topsoil....general good stuff. Will top up again this winter to really feed it.
The ironic thing, for years before they built these houses, cows literally did their business, week in, week out....the soil was amazing.....now I'm buying it back from the garden centres!!
In terms of the new project, I think the walls must be ideal for climbers, roses, clematis etc...form the backdrop. First job removing what appears to be a privet type plant.
