Just past puberty!

Out-of-control! The yard is not bordered correctly, is rather overgrown in places and lacks a Zen quality that is desperately desired. Please offer any advice and suggestions. I love working in the yard and am ready to get dirty! We have a deep backyard that is fenced in with modern material, as well as vines, vines, vines! Many perennials grow in the garden and along the garage/fence. There is a giant Tulip tree just north of the garage, which blooms beautifully. A mammoth bush, which has grown into a tree, adds shade and charm to the deep portion of the yard. There are wild roses and wild raspberries in various places along the perimeter. Last year, I referred to the yard as "The Jungle", but now it's definitely more tame. Yeah right!
