Help bash my landscaping (new home w/ pics)
First post. Looking forward to getting some great advice. We just purchased this home (our first) and have no experience landscaping. As you can see the bushes/trees are overgrown, many plants are dead, and some are growing behind one another. Before ripping out everything and starting over, I figured I'd get some input from members/posters to see what I could salvage. I have no strong feelings towards any of the plants.
However, we're on a tight budget so most will need to be done by me. We have no tools aside from a lawn mower and weed whacker.
Within the next year or two we'll be taking down the large tree closest to the house, redoing the walkway with pavers, framing the flowers beds with natural stone, and leveling the yard (the roots from the trees are creating havoc for the grass and making rain puddle on the lawn). I figure this is at least a 5 figure job so we're going to have to wait on it.
Thanks in advance for any help!
