....the first spring after we bought the house, then out of nowhere, i started getting weeds coming through. I've yet to use any chemical weed killers as I want to be able to plant in these gardens eventually.

I am looking for a clean state though and these bulbs must have been left in the soil from before we bought the house...... do any of you have any idea what these are???

any help is much appreciated.

The last three pictures are not (to my knowledge) bulbs, but if any of you know what they are fire away!

So I added a few more pics the end off my yard is riddled with these two plants, The leaves are dark green and in the winter the foliage disappears and there are lots of vine-y type stalks underneath. Any ideas what it is.

Also what is the slightly lighter green/yellow plant? my wife thinks its poison ivy.

That would make sense as we got rid of about 15 maple trees from our yard. I'll have to get them taken down too then. We are trying to start over completely.

In some ways yes In others no. The leaves look similar and in the winter it has kind of viney roots light in colour that kind of sit on top of the soil horizontally. But now they are just about to bloom, they have kinda black ball type berries or flowers starting to bloom. I pulled one up and took another couple of pictures of it. Apparently Japanese honeysuckle can affect property prices as it's so difficult to remove.

At this point i am considering just spraying the whole area with Glyphosphate we don't intend to plant anything but turf grass there in the future and the only place we are going to be planting foodstuffs will be in raised planters , which aren't even built yet. I'm actually planning on having the whole right side of my yard graded (the whole yard but mainly the right side).

I Included a couple pics of my back yard to show the overview of the work we have ahead of us. Soooo much potential in the yard but also Sooooo much work, and I'm not a millionaire so i cant just pay someone to do it for me.

My yard after we had the trees taken down and before we have it cleaned up the way we want and graded/hydroseeded:
