The patch of ground at the front of my house is not very inspiring!
When I first came to view the property, I felt something should be done to make it more welcoming but so far nothing has happened.
My neighbour, who shares the lawn, is concerned that if we dig up the grass it will increase the flood risk. Which means there is actually very little soil to play with.
So far, this has been covered in pebbles. And increasing encroaching grass as well as the ubiquitous dandelion. I am now in the process of removing all of this – but what am I going to plant instead?
