No idea how to start on overgrown garden
Hi anyone who reads this. Firstly - Thanks for reading, any help would be very appreciated!
So I am 5 months pregnant and have just finished working so thought now would be a great time to make our neglected overgrown garden into somewhere our little girl will enjoy. I have never gardened or done anything remotely green fingered in my life!
So, before I even tackle how to make it look pretty and garden ideas I know I have to tackle the weeds. In certain areas it is more weed than grass, and in other areas (like the side of the house which is a smallish awkward triangle shape, maybe starting at 2 meters at the widest before closing off) where it is all uneven ground with weeds up to my thighs!
Do I dig out any unwanted plants before or after weeding? ( for example we have a random patch of pond reeds in one corner!)
How do I get rid of the weeds without killing too much grass? I dont care if the grass isnt ripe and green for this summer I just want it sorted.
What should I do with the awkward triangle? We have 2 sheds that fit behind our garage.
What are some ideas for low maintenance plants and how do I even start a flower bed off?
What is pregnancy friendly and what do I have to get my partner to do?
I just feel a little overwhelmed!
Thank you if anyone helps
