Clearing my front garden - advice requested


Recommended Posts

I'm not sure if this is the right place to put this; moderators, please feel move to the correct section.

Newbie gardener/DIYer here.

I live in a first floor flat of a Victorian conversion, with a small front garden that's overgrown with weeds. I want to dig out the flower(weed) bed and replace with gravel, take down the rotting picket fence on the half-wall, repaint, and generally tidy up.

My question is, what do you do with all of the rubbish and dug up topsoil? Do you pile it all on a tarpaulin and get Southwark Council round to haul it away? (I can't imagine my neighbours would take too kindly to a pile of dirt left on the pavement for days.) Buy one of those hippo bags from b&q? What do local car-less DIYers do? Even if you have a car, where do you dispose of green waste and wood? We're mid-terrace and don't have access to the back garden, so there's nowhere to put it all while we wait for it to be hauled away.

Any tips appreciated.
