I'm trying to say in Latin, "Our garden has been full of junk for three years" and I can't figure out what tense to put the verb in. In English, "has been" expresses present tense with perfective aspect of a stative verb.
Other present-tense, perfective-aspect verbs (stative or otherwise, unless I'm mistaken) call for the perfect. But somehow
Hortus trés annós scopí quisquiliæque fuit plénus.
makes me feel the past tense only, not the present.
Hortus trés annós scopí quisuiliæque erat plénus.
also feels wrong.
Hortus trés annós scopí quisquiliæque est plénus.
can't be right.
Similarly, past tense perfective aspect seems impossible to me too.
Hortus trés annós scopí quisquiliæque fuerat plénus.
I have the feeling this is actually a really easy thing to deal with and I'm just overthinking it.
