Flobear, you have chickens?  when my space is ready could I pick your brains for chicken advice?

Also any of you other wonderful people who may have chickens, advice for a newby would be appreciated, just want them for eggs.

Wow! what a response, thankyou guys and girls.  Your advice is sound, I had thought of a goat but that would just add more poo.  On reading all your comments you are all right, I should just section it off and do a bit at a time, my mom said everyone would muck in and help (muck being 'the word'), one should always listen to your mum. LeadFarmer you suggest a photo, thats a good idea, I will do that and put photo online, when it stops raining in Lancashire for more than a few minutes.  If you wonderful people could make suggestions that would be fabulous.

  Thankyou Moonlit, Marshmello, hollyhock LeadFarmer, Pavery, Flobear & Aliesh you have all cheered me up and started the positive vibes about my once beloved garden.

I have a garden I think is approx 30' by 20 to 25' (sorry can't get hang of metric). It is unfortunately in a very bad way, we have a dog and its become very overgrown (all my fault) had large weeds I think are dock type my borders are all taken over (Iused to sit on my pergola on sundays with coffee and a book early sunday mornings, now I have a hard time finding it.  I just don't know where to start.

Do I kill the whole lot and rotivate it all in dog doos included (you cant really pick the dog doo out) then returf?

Would any landscape gardener touch it in the condition its in? and what would the cost be (scary)?

It used to be a nice garden but illness, long working hours took its toll.  I want it back.

I also have four raised beds I used to grow veg in but its buried under weeds.....................HELP anyone with some positive suggestions to reclaim my once lovely garden.

I would like to grow veg again, keep chickens and have a garden that bees and birds and other wildlife cannot resist................oh and somwhere peaceful to come home to after a stressful day. Not a tall order at all????
