Overwhelmed by my garden.
I bought this house three years ago and when I saw the property I feel in love with it. The previous owners however were tired of taking care of it and it really showed. For the last three summers I've been moving pants and giving them away and so forth but with all the work it's getting overwhelming. I was wondering if there is someone that can help me figure out how to give my garden the flare it needs. I don't mind buying new plants or using old ones, I just need some direction. Please keep in mind I took these pictures today and technically it's still winter here in the Chicagoland area. I haven't gotten out there to clean out my beds yet.
Small section of purple flowers found in this bed every year. They bloom in early spring only.
This is the other side of that same bed.
This is another bed, it receives full afternoon and evening sun. There are Hostas, Hydrangeas, some ground cover as well as other plants unknown to me.
Any help is appreciated!
