We have a bit of unused garden space. We've no idea what to do with it because there's too much soil to allow lawn mowers to work. We have a few ideas: A. put down some planks/bricks to make a sort of raised flower bed? But how do I secure the planks so the weight of wet soil will not move it? What plants to plant? low maintenance is number 1 concern. B. remove the soil to do grass. How to remove soil without a wheel barrow or even access to the garden? I don't want to carry dirt through the house. (only way to access garden) My wife and I have zero gardening experience, I only know how to do lawn mowing any help are much appreciated.
