I agree with all above when I moved into my house it was empty for 2 years before me, so the so called garden was a mess ( that's putting it mildly). It is now a good few years later and I am tackling the last patch. I started closest to the house, gloves on just clearing the mess working down the garden gradually. It's amazing what I found and a path I never knew existed it was covered up that much. I never got a contractor in they cost too much, and like said above went out after work for a couple of hours. In fact after a stressful its quite relaxing pulling up the weeds, letting your mind wander to what you could plant there. Throughout it all my mantra was don't look at what you have to do, look at what you have done. It will work, good luck.
