You will need to be very diplomatic if you involve the residents, Steve. You only have to look on this site to see how peoples ideas vary.
Its a never ending job, don't think that if you get it tidy and straight, thats how it will stay, I am constantly working on mine, it feels like I am running an old folks home, my parents are just armchair gardeners now, but some of their ideas differ to mine.
Take it bit by bit, you cant do it all at once, just see what the priorities are, probably at the moment cutting grass and strimming edges is the one.
There is still time to cut shrubs into some formality, then theres the disposing of it all, thats a job in itself.
Good luck with your project/new job, just ask if you need help ( us and the other staff )
