Turning hummocky field into garden

How do I turn a hummocky field into a garden without using weedkillers/ poisons? The area is rich in wildlife so this project has to be as kind as possible to the environment as is possible so as not to impact on the hares, badgers, etc. passing through. It's a 1 acre site, never been gardened before, and I want to make a start now on conversion to an eventual herb-veg-fruit garden. Not afraid of hard work. liveen, Galway, Co Galway Posted: 07/03/2016

There is a lot of general information at: http://www.garden.ie/gardendesign.aspx?id=397
Otherwise, draw a map of the garden to scale and place on it the features you want. Then set about putting hem in places, such as some woodland, grass areas, rough and smooth, kitchen garden, ornamental areas etc
Buy a good quality brushcutter with a head that can be changed to carry nylon line or metal blade.
