Help with my garden please!
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.
