I would stain the fence first as it is looking like it needs a coat first.
Second, as above has said, if you want to add borders then plan them now.
Lawn - I would rake over the whole lawn taking all the thatch out. I would then go over it with a garden fork and aerate the whole lawn then get some sand mixed with compost and throw that in the hole created. Leave the lawn for a few weeks. By that itme it will be March and you can throw some grass seed where it needs it.
