I have just been weeding my very very very over grown flower weedy grass beds.

I now have a MOUNTIAN of grass / weeds / thorny plants etc and i was wondering if it would be easier to just burn them?

My garden is mainly patio / crazy paving, but i couldnt (or at least shouldnt) do it straight on the ground should I?

I would ideally like to do it in the end bit of patio, prob 5m sqaure but i have my wooden shed thing one side and a big plant at the other...

or i could just do it in the other bit in the middle of my main garden? (closer to house)

i have never even thought about a bonfore before....

i cant believe its as simple as making a pile and lighting it with a match?
will it light easily and all burn

or do i need ti do anything first? like let the stuff dry out a bit? if so for how long?

I really dont have the 1st clue

i dont want to burn my house down or anything.

I have a (small) metal BBQ if that would help?

Will it be a disaster? am i better off just going to the tip a few hundred times with green sacks? (being allergic to the grass i dont really want it all in my car)

I havent a clue about it and if anyone could give me advice id be most greatful

would only do it in the evening when all my neighbours washing is in
