Thats in pretty good condition - I've seen worse. The best way to tackling any thing in life, is to be methodical and consistent in your approach.
Choose a small section and decide if it needs just a tidy, dig or cut. With the chosen tools just crack on until that small section is done. Once it is, put your tools away and go make yourself a tea/coffee - stand and admire your work.
With your beverage in hand, allocate your next little plot and make plans to do this another day.
This was the best advice given to me by gardeners with 30-40yrs experience, when I was like you. And believe me, it does work ! LITTLE and OFTEN is the key here.
Goodluck - it will look great in no time.
