Aye, it has been an evolution from a lawn, which the first dog destroyed, through South Cerney chippings to timber. Must be a big bloody hole at South Cerney, everyone round our way has them.
I currently have a back yard with old concrete on it and a tiny front "garden" thats got a ton or so of rubble from when I got rid of the fireplace. Skips coming on Friday and after that it goes back to some form of garden. At least the rubble kept this years weeds down
