I was thinking of creating a wild play area for kids in the garden (about 5m X 30m); maybe put a climbing frame one end, add some hills and leave it to go wild. I'm wondering however if it will need to be maintained at some stages, cut back etc, to prevent unwanted rodents from making their homes (i.e. so needing tractor access). Is my plan to put play area and wild area together a little naive? I'm imagining Little House on the Prarie with Laura Ingles running through long grass - not an area with rotten grass overrun with rats. Can it be done?
Are there plants and shrubs for sale at this venue?
I am a beginner gardner and was wondering if you could recommend some good garden design books or web sites. I have a large spread out garden and I don't know where to start.
Im completely new to this we moved into new house recently and let back garden get overrun with weeds...they were about 2 foot high..i have strimmed the whole thing and then rotavated it twice...what do i do next should i spray with weedkiller...a friend of mine told me i should lay grass seed and then lay weed and feed?? To kill the weeds and feed the grass??
