London, United Kingdom
Forgive me for my strange terrminology, I am as you may tell a novice gardener, however I am willing to learn and work very hard!
I have recently moved into a house which has a tree in front of it. This is in the middle of a small 'mound' which in both the winter and in summer looks very unsightly with a large amount of weeds and wandering root things(?), perhaps coming from the tree? This looks very messy which in turn draws pedestrians to through rubbish into it.
I would like to completely clear this area, making it suitable for grass to grow on it, then lay/grow grass (whichever has bettter effects?) similar to my neighbours garden as shown in the picture. Or if this is not possible, make it as neat as possible.
What would be the best way to approach this and is ther anything I need to watch out for, in regards to tampering with the tree roots and also stopping any ugly weeds etc growing through.
Any help appreciated.
