Where do I start?!

*Please note, I meant the plants that are already there, not pants. All items of underwear were removed by previous tenant.

Hello everyone!

I hope there is someone on here that can help me. Myself and my partner have moved into a rented property with a front and back garden. The landlord has said "as long as I dont have to pay for anything you can do what you want", which is fine, the problem is that we have no idea what to do with the pants that are already there! 

The garden is pretty well established (more prescisely, the previous tenants didnt look after the garden). There are conifers, hostas, lupins, clematis, honeysuckle, hydrangea and lots of other things I have no idea what they are, and a vegetable patch all battling for space and attention and, as the title suggests, we have no idea where to start with it all!! 

My partner's problem solving has whittled down to pouring plant and weed killer over it all and starting again... which I'm not so keen on! The other problem we face is that this is the first garden either of us has ever had to tend to, so our limited knowledge holds us back a lot. 

If ANYONE can give us any help, any whatsoever, it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you so much in advance!

Tara & James
