New Homeowner, With Issues....
Find a Conversation

My name is Andrea. This is my first time at iVillage, but I was desperate to find a forum of like-minded individuals.
We moved into our first home late last year, when the snow was on the ground. We had extensive renovations done throughout the inside, but now that we're out of money ;o) and summer is springing up, we've realized we have quite a yard to contend with! We have a corner lot (not an acre or anything) and it's pretty large for a subdivision...with no fence to speak of, but the strangest privacy line of evergreens - many of which are missing, leaving gaps in the privacy part.
I am looking for somewhere where I can discuss and learn about pruning trees, bushes, fencing, vegetable gardening, and some flower gardening. I live in Southern Ontario, Canada and I have always had veg gardens before with very little trouble. Flowers will be a new horizon for me, and I will likely start with planters.
I am heading outside now to take some photos, and I will add them here once I confirm I am at the right place. There is so much to do that we almost don't know where to start.
