Wow...looks like you have done a lot of clearing already.

If you don't plan on removing the tree stump completely you could turn it into a feature. Just nail a plastic drip tray onto the top of it and place a plant pot on top with a plant that trails down to cover the stump. Or even place a little water feature on top for the birds and grow some ivy up the sides.

What ever you do...I hope you have fun creating your new garden!

All the best,

The garden's got "bags of potential" - think of the fun you'll have making it how you want. :-)
