My garden is mostly on a quarter acre that is the original property that our old (pre-hurricane) house was on. The other three-quarters is an on-going project.
We purchased the three lots next door some years back to prevent the trees being cut down and a house being built too close to ours. The property was a mess when we bought it, and aggressive vines were choking the trees out. It's back-breaking work (only done in the cooler months), but we've been attacking the vines ever since.
Our work was stopped for a few years when our home was destroyed by a hurricane, and we were focused on re-building. The vines, however, never stopped. The wild grapevines are the most destructive, but the potato vines don't go dormant during the winter. We get out there whenever we can and keep working at it. It's our intent that one day, it will be a beautiful natural wooded area.
