I have a huge piece of ground in my yard that I own . It’s big all grassy yet dirty looking . There’s a 10 ft metal fence around it . Being a female I’m searching for easy things to do with it !!! I know it will take some time with hopes of not much money !!!! I’m sure rather positive that I will appreciate it way more if I do it myself .... Any/ All ideas are welcome

    Do you want to keep it grass? you could add plant beds which would be less mowing!

    Post a few pictures and share some ideas of what you want. Do you want a seating area? Flower beds? Low maintenance shrubs? Vegetable garden? Paving/patio stones? By sharing some direction of what you want and adding pictures, you will get much more specific advice.

    You could always add grass seed to get the grass nice and thick. You could add plants that will grow on the fence and can turn the metal fence into a living wall. Here is a link that can give you ideas on that:

    I always start with a rough drawing of the area. I'm no artist but straight lines do okay. You're the only one reading them anyway. Then I fill it in. If something isn't right, erase or draw a new one. Once I'm satisfied with that, I go online and look for ideas for different materials. Bricks, rocks, cinderblocks, anything, there are thousands of ideas. Once you figure out the materials you want or need, Craigslist and Facebook Marketplace are great places to find free materials. Good luck!
