Welcome to Workshop @Esther48. Many thanks for joining the community. I'm sure you are going to find it a great source of information and inspiration for all your projects in future.
Great to see you received a couple of helpful replies about your plans for the verge garden. Perhaps you could start a new discussion and share some photos of what you are working with. You might get some further suggestions about dealing with couch and it would be great to see your progress as you go.
Please let me know if you need a hand getting the most from the site.
Decided to make a start @Esther48 but my neck is paying for it today... The couch can be so dense and tough to cut through. Ended up using an axe to cut into squares before digging out with a spade. Waitibg for the cement edging to dry (reinforcing driveway edge) before getting the good soil and plants in.
Install a sliding/bi-fold door (with retractable fly screens)
Hopefully get to be able to fix damage from cyclone Debbie. Due to work and family commitments, unable to get to it prior to this xmas. Fingers crossed.
Sorry to hear of the damage @Grant21. What needs repair?
Feel free to start a new discussion if you need a hand with anything. There's plenty of community members who would be happy to share their experience, expertise and advice.
Let me also extend a very warm welcome to Workshop. It's fantastic to have you join us. Please let me know if you ever need a hand getting the most from the site.
