Hi gardeners, hope you can help me out here. I bought my house about a year ago. The people before me were apparently keen gardeners. I am not a gardener at all - I don’t get pleasure from it, I struggle finding time, and don’t really know what I’m doing. At the moment I have a big garden out the front and two garden areas out the back. They are completely over run with weeds and look dreadful. I really need to do something to make my gardens more manageable (without spending a ridiculous amount of money). All of the gardens have trees in them, so I was thinking of ripping out everything and just putting it back to grass and leaving the trees. Is this a good idea or does anyone have a better idea? I will leave some of the garden out the front so it doesn’t look completely bare!
