And roughly where the sun is.

I got lots of books from the library and magazines that give ideas. Cup of tea in the sunshine and a garden book with lots of pictures is heaven!  

Another favourite of mine is the double decker park and ride bus from the top of which you can see into other people's gardens

I was thinking shears too.  Or what about changing it for alternative lawn eg chamomile, thyme.

 Hi, this is the area along the roadside of my garden  - lime trees above - about a month ago. It was covered in brambles and nettles when I moved into the house and I'm really pleased how its come on.  The snowflakes and hellebores were there already, but have really come on now they have space to breathe.  I added the geranium clumps from elsewhere in the garden and planted the daffs. Further along, more recently I've added hosta and more hellebore and split some snowflake clumps, and added pulmonaria ( unfortunately right on top of a snowflake clump before it appeared!!) I've got some brunnera to go in, and next year planning cyclamen around the base of the tree.  I forumed for advice on it last year so thanks all for your help.

Palaisglide, were you mixing up threads? No mention of driveway and time dependency on this one.

I thought when moving trees, circa 1 year before you should dig a circle around the tree, severing any roots to encourage it to grow more small fibrous roots - then it'll cope better with the later transplanting.  Is this so?

Sorry I've made a mess of the quoting.  The last sentence above is me not Briggsy!

Japanese Knotweed is from the rhubarb family, I wonder if that would also work?

I will give it a go - a great use for the stuff & we have no shortage here!

P.S. Just as a matter of interested knotweed tastes just like rhubarb and you can harvest the young shoots as they come up, once over 8-9" they become tough so you do need to harvest young.

I'd be too terrified to eat Japanese Knotweed.  All that talk about it growing through concrete, coming through walls of new build houses - I'd be scared it'd grow inside me!!
