Best way Doogie. We took on a very overgrown garden, Some might say we've still got one

One strategy that worked well was to plan where shrubs/trees were going and clear enough space to get them started. Then when you're really getting in there you'll have shrubs already established

I would leave the agapanthus as it is till next spring but maybe a weak feed to get the roots growing. In the spring pot up the best in separate pots and grow on for another season, maybe two or three seasons

Buddleias are ungainly shrubs but can be cut to suit your wishes. That would be worth planting out

That's weeds for you

I've got that one, it's not as difficult to control as rosebay wh or the other big one that I've forgotten the name of.

That's why I don't grow them. I can offer food but it's too dry here for them to make a good show.

If the hedge is still alive it's a survivor.

I wonder if it's Lonicera nitida rather than box, somewhat similar leaves and a more likely choice of hedge in that sitruation. I can see some bramble there as well.

If it is L. nitida it will take a very severe haircut and grow back, provided it's not too far gone

Good luck

Agree with Buttercup, not sure which one that is but a willowherb for sure
