Only survey of the actual garden is by me and the Boss. Hydrangeas and Hydrangeas and even more Hydrangeas. No sign of any herbaceous perennials except Lysimachia Firecracker which is all over the place  and only Daffodils as bulbs.
Tree stumps all over the place. There are TPO's on 4 of the trees and we think they caught wind of them happening and had all the trees which were in the wrong place cut down, but did not get in a stump grinder. We may have to do that ourselves. Also the place is stuffed full of conifers which are going to have to be removed. There is a massive Monkey Puzzle tree too. All the soil we have looked at is acid clay, but not too sticky and full of tree roots. A big job ahead methinks.

That is a nightmare Eric! Its going to take a lot of hard work to get that garden into shape.
I HATE dealing with roots.

Well, at least Lysimachia Firecracker is a pretty flower  ;D
I have grown it in the past. (Un?)fortunately it died out.

You could be lucky - the Hydrangeas might not all be the same variety :D
