I'm a complete beginner gardener and I'd really like some advice. I have a fairly large front garden and small back garden and I'd like to get rid of the lawn as I don't have any time to maintain it. I'd like to use shingles or pebbles or something similar and get rid of the lawn but have no idea how I'd go about doing that. Would I have to dig up the lawn or can I just lay it over the top (with a sheet of something underneath)?
Any advice would be really appreciated!
