Start closest to your residence and work out from there, tackling one piece of property at a time. You can use groundcovers to crowd out weeds and reclaim the land and you move out into the unplanted areas. It might help to sketch out your property and start jotting down ideas. Flower beds? Vegetable bed? Wildflowers? Paths? Picnic area? Just sketch out your preferences, then concentrate on one area at a time. There are tons of landscape design books in your local library and you may be able to get some ideas from your cooperative extension office. Here's a publication from the University of Georgia that you might find helpful:

Best wishes with your new landscape!
