Oooh, that is just how I want mine to look.

Deer eating our privet-tips to repair and control?

I have horses and electric fences and a hornbeam hedge. The electric fence doesn't stop the deer, they jump it and eat the hornbeam hedge.

You will need to get perennial weeds out. Grass doesn't do that well where there is deep shade but you can buy grass seed mixes for shade. If it's always damp too you may have a problem with moss.

Can your funds run to pots or containers to put on the huge patio which you can sow flowers, veg and/or herbs into? Then you'll have some produce and nature while you are planning what to do next and waiting for the lawn to establish.

Rachel de Thame trained with the Royal Ballet but had to give up when she was 19 after she had had glandular fever. She did some modelling. But then decided to do a course in Horticulture. I think she first joined Gardener's World in 2007. She doesn't appear in it as much as she used to. She's 54. I like her.

I'm enjoying this series so far. Monty is getting his hands dirty too, and had a mouthful of earth from the green roof in that little yard!
