What to do first?
I am in the process of buying a home with 1/2 acre on a hill. I am new to gardening in this climate, and I will be moving in early July. The previous owners did a fair amount of work and (bless them) removed all the blackberries which was apparently a huge job. The existing garden doesn't quite suit my tastes and there is a lot of open space.
I am planning ahead and would really like some ideas of where to start. There is so much space and I am at a bit of a loss for where to begin. I would love ideas on the best ways to spend the first summer in my new garden.
