Landscaping Disaster!

I love my house! I may be in denial but I am really hoping to find a way to keep my house and not have to sell it because I am getting a divorce... However, maintaining the landscaping by myself is proving to be a challenge... I need help taming this mess of shrubbery!! I can't afford to hire someone to do it and doing it all by myself would take me many hours, also I am VERY afraid of what might live in there (spiders, bugs, etc.)… Lizards for sure, but I'm not exactly afraid of them, they do freak me out when they come scurrying out of nowhere!

I don't even know where to begin with this mess!!! I have trimmed it back twice now because it keeps encroaching on my walkway. There is some type of vine growing throughout the bushes that I would like removed as well as some plant with thorns in the middle (which doesn't look like a rose bush)… I do want to keep some of the plants but I'm guessing the bushes will have to be excessively cut back in order to clean it all up and get to the roots of the vines. As well as all the dead leaves underneath it all... I think there is a rose bush at the far end also some cute yellow flowers I like…
This is also encroaching on the walkway on one side and the driveway on the other and needs to be trimmed way back. Not sure if you can tell in the picture, but it is COVERED in spider webs... ICK!!! Hopefully I can manage to enlist some help from some people in a Facebook group I'm in, because thanks to Ex I have no friends here to count on. Otherwise I'm going to have to enlist some child labor and just start hacking away at it every day for an hour or two at a time until I get it done... In which case maybe my some of my neighbors will feel sorry for me and join in to help... One of my neighbors did help me fix a broken sprinkler yesterday, which I am very grateful for!
