Shame it's so uneven, I like it better than the drain and the concrete path.
Couldn't you tidy it up, spray the weeds with glyphosate and put some pots of flowers on it?
I'm not that keen on gravel, except on drives, or gravel beds around lavender or rock plants etc., as it gets everywhere, isn't comfy to push wheelbarrows on and grazes children's knees when the fall on it. A pergola and a seating area would be lovely. If you have a handy husband you could get cheaper wood from somewhere like a sawmill.
