Sounds like you have a big job on your hands Shelley but well done for trying. You learn a lot from experience.

Weeding and feeding is a good start. Also you did the right thing by using the internet for help. I use it all the time if I have a gardening problem - like an insect invasion etc.

There are lots of ways of making a garden easy to care for when you have a busy life.

Good luck to you!

Shelly, wonder how you are getting on now, as I see your post was August.   Hillary gave good advice just now and I know it can be intimidating when there is a huge vigorous undertaking and you feel you know nothing.  Get physical help from a strong willing person and also work on a small easy area to give yourself confidence and enjoyment. Get a few packets of annuals and remember we all learn to garden in small incremental steps.  'Fraid this sounds a bit preachy and you are probably in a different place now!
