I need to sort my jungle garden out ! Its 40ft by 25ft and has every kind of weed you could possibly imagine and they grow ridiculously fast as does the grass . I am a complete novice and have a small budget, So here is what I need to know ..
How do i get rid of such a vast amount of weeds . How do i make the ground even.
I only want a snap area of grass at the bottom of the garden so what is the best way to do this as their is a huge ditch at the bottom of the garden with the old concrete cemetery fence half buried
Is it easy enough to lay a patio ?
All the grass needs replacing as its more weeds than grass
I think that's it , can't keep it all as grass as Ds is allergic to grass
Are the weeds in the borders or all over the whole plot? You could be lazy and buy weed killer or another way is so cover the whole lot- borders- with black plastic like bin bags opened up and weighted down - so you exclude light. This kills the weeds but you will still need to dig them up.
Evening the ground- digging up and maybe adding top soil if there are huge differences in levels.
New lawn- turf is the easiest.
Patio- you need good preparation- level ground, sand under the slabs, and maybe a liner to stop weeds growing- google some DIY sites and there'll be loads of info.
Sounds like an awful lot to take on so maybe find someone who can do the patio and you do the rest ?
The cheapest ground sheet stuff is thick blue plastic that they sell in B&Q as damp proof membrane - we only paid about £20 5 years ago and it's still thick plastic and hasn't deteriorated. All other weedy membrane types have deteriorated on my allotment. I've now loaned the same bit of blue plastic to 3 different people.
