Q.Help with my garden please!

Zone Belfast | AustinW1 added on April 23, 2019 | Answered

Hi, I’ve never been very good with gardening but we have recently bought a new house and want to do something with the front garden. It’s in quite a bad state and we would like just some grass and maybe a flower bed or 2. It seems like it’s been a long time since it was tended to and there are a few stumps round it that we would like to get rid of (there is one right in the middle of the garden that I thought maybe we could do something decorative with, e.g flowers around it). So, really just looking for some advice or where to even start if possible please? Thank you.

First, I can tell you, stump removal will require a company to come out if you don't have a stump grinder, or the tools to remove one. That will be the first thing that you will need to do.

This article will guide you on preparing the spot for planting: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/special/starting/how-to-build-a-flower-bed-starting-a-flower-bed-from-scratch.htm
