Oh and with regards to water... what tends to happen is that it drains away at the bottom underneath the garden as during wet weather I have a mini river which is being piped away from the back of my house with some new drainage underneath walls etc... the garden level is above that of the grown floor of the house.

Here are a few photographs taken today mainly from the upstairs of house. Once the weather improves I'm going to get steps put leading up to the garden but at the moment there is just a template there for them.

 I think the garden is south facing but there are trees at the top end on the neighbours property and there are the trees to the right on the farmers field (although they are trimmed down).

Would love some ideas on what to do with my garden.... I will attach a few images soon (assuming its allowed) but for now just describe it.

The garden is sloped with a pretty straight drop to the road on one side of about five/six feet. On the other side of the garden there is a very steep slope which goes to a farmers field which is lined at the top by a tree hedge - trimmed.

It's also a complete mess and has been left completely untended  bar some weedkilling spray each year and strimming - its also got a lot of moss growing on it.

I'd really like to make it useable but I hate how ugly the incredibly steep bank is that goes up the side to the farmers border and I'm not sure what to do along the side which leads to the road. 

I would love to be able to grow my own veggies - not an enormous patch but just enough and have an area to keep 2 or three chickens (enclosed).

I will have to take dimensions of it and photos but if anyone has any suggestions based on where I should start it would be a huge help to me as I will have to do as much of this as possbile on my own.
