Talkback: How to dig beds in winter

Posted: 09/01/2014 at 13:50

Unfortunatly for us, we have recently moved into a house where the rear garden (in talking to the neighbours) hasn't been worked, at all!!!! in 12 years. All the borders had regrown grass and are heavily compacted. I don't suppose all you folks who don't dig your borders have a spare afternoon do you?

New House, Old Lawn

We've recently moved into a new house, which is great, but whilst the front lawn is fine, just in need of a re seed and borders dug, the back is a mess.

Its covered in doc, clover, long grass, nettle and a massive patch of bramble, we have low council wire fencing on 2 sides and a burn mark 8 ft in diameter right in the middle of the lawn (if you can call it that) where the previous tennants burnt their sheds before they were evicted.

Before anyone asks, this is a council property which we are probably going to buy in the long term so we've got no problem with spending the cash on it over the next few years.

Bearing in mind this is our first garden..........Where the hell do I start?
