  • If it was my house, I would tear it all out and start over. Till soil over, add good compost. Place landscape fabric and cover with river rock, or something decorative. I do not use mulch next to structures. A blank but neat space is better than a random bunch of who knows what. Then she can add plants when she has the money.

    The first picture is Sedum, a ground cover. The vine with white flowers looks to be Bindweed and you want it gone, gone, gone. The tree next to the pine looks like a Black Walnut (scrunch a leaf, if there is a strong odor that is what it is), you don't want it there, they get huge. I have no idea what the yellow flowers are.

    It is sedum, a ground cover, not invasive, usually will bloom yellow or pink flowers. The white one is morning glory very invasive. I would get rid of that and I think the yellow one is yarrow. You can cut that back and it will come up every year. It needs help standing up.

    It is unruly sedum. And it seems to be getting infested with a flowering vine. Sedum is sold in nurseries and used as a ground cover or accent for other taller plants and rocks. I'd pull out the invading vine (ugh), and plan around the existing sedum. It seems happy there.

    That thing next to the pine tree is definitely a overgrown weed!

    I agree, the ground cover is a sedum...great ground cover that usually chokes out weeds...but that morning glory is a nightmare. It will go everywhere and choke everything in its path. Fortunately, it's pretty easy to pull out...but do it sooner than later or you'll have nothing else.

    Linda is soooo right...that morning glory is a beast! pull it at the roots, choke it, poison it but do it soon, its sneaking it's way through everything as we speak. my neighbors do nothing about weeds so as result I fight their creepers coming into my yard daily....that sedum is lovely

    Thank you all so much! I wasn't sure if the one was some kind of morning glory or not. It's also in the back yard but her step days is taking care of her back yard for her. (Its hard for her with raising two girls. (One 7 years one and one 9 months).

    just checking to see if everyone agreed about the white flowers on the vine, here we call it creeping jenny and it will take over if you give it half a chance!

    whitish is a 'deadly night shade' i believe. Rip it out it is very aggressive and posinious if eaten. . They are amongst baby evergreens-cedar!

    The white flowers are what we call in England bine weed and it's very invasive and not a good thing to have in your garden so you need to get rid of it because it will take over the garden and grow everywhere, but make sure you don't leave any of the roots behind or it start again from the tiniest bit that is left good luck  !!!

    The morning glory looking vine is bindweed. I will tell you from personal experience, it is impossible to get rid of if you are not in top of it all the time. It creeps and drops roots wherever it touches soil and if you don't get the roots out it will keep coming back. I had beautiful spires bush that it climbed up in the center where I couldn't see it and just took it over. Ended up having to chop the bush down to just above the ground. the spires is coming back but so is the bindweed. The battle. continues!
