I am new to this site! I would really, really appreciate some advice on how to tackle my overgrown garden please. I have just moved house, and the back garden has not been touched in a long time!
I think I have hugely underestimated the job, and thought mowing the area would solve the problem. I have attached some photos. Photo 1 shows the garden when we arrived. Photo 2 shows the garden after I tried to mow it, notice it is just a bed of long dead grass! Photo 3 shows a small area after mowing, where I have attempted to pull up all the dead grass by hand (hard work) .
Sorry for the long explanation, i'm at a loss really as to what to do. Shall I continue to mow and then rip up all the dead grass? I have been using a qualcast 1200W electric mower from Argos. Thank you in advance for any advice, it is greatly appreciated :-). I have tried googling "how to treat an overgrown garden" but some of the articles are very technical with lots of fancy equipment!
