I moved into a house last winter and inherited a very overgrown garden bed. It is "L" shaped and each side is about 15' x 8'. After seeing what came up over a year, I found it was filled with asters, daylily, golden rod, very overgrown tea roses, bindweed, bittersweet, milkweed and other assorted gone wild flowers and weeds. I'm trying to figure out the best way to handle this mess. Part of the bed will be turned into lawn and the other part will go to a flower garden.

I should note that I am trying to stay organic with everything I do. I also have a baby who will be just over one this summer, so I'm not sure the time I can devote to the project.

Any and all suggestions will be appreciated.

Thanks,
Amy
