    one small project at a time; replace/repair one side of the fence as you can, etc, then simply keep mowing down areas of scraggly grasses/weeds until they eventually die out ( don't need 'chemicals'); section off areas that you want to 'landscape' -- shrubs, seasonal/perennial flowers, veggies, etc and, again, start small -- you can always make 'larger' by expanding whatever border material you choose ... bricks, strips of wood off pallet boards, upside down bottles with the necks buried in the dirt, etc.

    Just remember -- Rome wasn't built in a day ...

    Spend a little time each day wedding !!! Get some cheap dirt , check your local road dept. To see if they have free dirt and or mulch ! Get grass seed , rake bald spots areas , put down some dirt and grass seed and water frequently. You don't say what kind of fence you have...please give more info... We recently bought our first home , but have a small backyard, it was full of thorn and sticker bushes and vines

    growing all over , it just takes time , a lot of it , and patience...
