Make our garden ... not die?

When we rented our current flat, it came with a front garden that we are supposed to take at least minimal care of -- weeding and pruning, that kind of thing. The problem is, we haven't the faintest idea how to weed or prune or ... anything else. Help!

The garden has now run a bit riot -- here are some pictures
-- and there are black spots on the leaves of the rose bushes that seem kind of worrying.
What are the weeds in these pictures? How do you weed them? How do you tell what are the weeds and what belongs there? What, if anything should we prune? And how much? Should the spots on the leaves worry us? How do you take care of roses? Is there anything else we should be doing?
