All great gardening projects start with a plan.
Before you begin digging up your patch take a moment to survey your available area and make a list of your requirements. Do you want to grow veggies and flowers? Are you after a lovely lawn? What sort of soil is already in your garden?
For inspiration on creating your new green area look at garden magazines and websites, borrow books from your local library, have a look at plants that are thriving in your neighbourhood and research indigenous plants that are suitable in your local area.
