my garden is a jungle....help!!!!!
I have recently moved into a village, and i have a very large and long in lenght garden. at the very bottom of the garden is i have very large conifers and then all open feilds of countryside.this house used to belong to my husbands grandparents and has not been maintained for years.Only a few feet away from the kitchen back window are 3 very large conifers, that take up a lot of room and light, and if there is one thing i know, that would be that these need to come down. the rest of the garden is a jungle, with a large apple tree to the one side of the garden and then wild bushes either side filling both sides of the garden. I love modern easy maintained gardens and would love at least half(the half that starts from the back of the house) to look very modern(maybe decking, somewhere where we can sit and relax) i would not mind the bottom half of the garden kept within the country theme, but i just dont know where to start?? i realise that what needs doing is not just going to cost pennies, but we are not millionaires either! how do i get the bottom half to look naturally country looking without looking just wild and a mess? There is loads to do and think about and i just dont know where to start. Also, how is the best way to chop massive conifers down, and can we get rid of the stump it leaves? I would be very grateful for all ideas and answers. Thank you.
