As someone new to gardening I find that sometimes the best way to learn is to have a go and then learn from mistakes.  It can be difficult to fully research something new to you as you don't always know what to ask or look out for, by getting stuck in you can learn as you go.

that's true Georgie,

years later it's hard to remember how little you knew at the beginning.

I put tree shreddings on mine, and straight on the garden, or on top of a layer of horse muck on the garden. Never had a problem I could blame on that. You'd need to be sure you hadn't got wood that had been treated with anything the plants wouldnt like

my drive was tarmac well laid over hardcore in 1960. It's breaking up and the number of plants that seed and thrive in it is amazing.

Put the spade away, it's not that bad. It you're cutting it back to four feet every year the roots won't be enormous. If you let it go to great heights (that's great in hazel terms, it's not huge) the roots will grow to support it.
