If you are attempting to bring a garden up to the standard of your neighbours then in the end they are going to be pleased rather than critical.
And I know the feeling about being ill and folks not realising it. One of the reasons we moved here was because I had to take very early retirement, but I looked as fit as a fiddle. I was well known in the town where we lived and people did comment about how well I looked.
Forget about what others think and just enjoy doing what you can.
