If you want trees, hedges, anything that comes bare root, now is an excellent time to get them in.
i would look at some books, and visit other gardens and copy what you like. If its local to you, similar conditons, it should work.
I stole my first plan from the local garden centre which had a fantastic display. I have done some of my own beds since then, but they arent as good.
Dont be too hard on yourself, you can put things in the wrong place, move it later and learn from it.
