I wouldn’t bother doing much work in the garden during the first year, just sit back and look at what plants are already there, and how they grow.

Daffodils, tulips and grape hyacinths are good bulbs to plant in grass areas. They give nice flowers; dead-head them as they finish but allow the leaves to keep nourishing the bulb for another few months, before cutting them back to ground level and allowing the grass to grow over them.

Before getting your hopes up with regard to vegetables, check how many slugs and snails you have…
