Hi All,
We just started moving to a new home today. It sits on a mostly wooded 4.5 acre lot. The former owner once had a nice, productive garden in a little patch in the woods on the hillside.
Problem is that was 6-8 years ago and the plot is now fast on it's way to becoming forest again. There are several young trees in there, but you can still see the old raised beds. You can tell it was once a little paradise. The yard around the house is also fairly neglected. Looks like the lawn has been mowed when it got really bad, but little else.
I'm determined to restore it to it's former glory. Unfortunately, I'll have little money after the move. It will be me, a few tools, and a LOT of sweat. Also, I'm an utter noob.
I'm going to be needing a bunch of advice and info. I've come here with hopes that this is the place to find it.
And in time, maybe I'll be able to pay it forward.
Anyhoo, y'all have a good one!

Welcome, LordBurghley. You came to the right place for beginning. We were all beginners and all are still learning from each other. And I believe most of us began with a shovel and sweat.
