Just moved - horrible garden

Finally met my neighbour, I immediately quizzed her on my soggy gardens. She told me my garden was once full of flowers including sweet pea, bluebells, honeysuckle etc. Phew ! Things will grow !

I have to admit, I was feeling pretty down about these gardens but you lot have given me some great ideas, I really appreciate it. But be warned I will probably be asking LOTS of questions on the forum lol

Wow quick reply ! I think the ground was waterlogged before the heavy rains came . I'm keeping an eye on what happens with the water. I feel a bit overwhelmed, I keep thinking nothing will grow in it because of the shade / water etc.

We have just moved to a house with an east facing garden. It also appears to be very waterlogged, large patches of standing water. I'd like to start planning what I'm going to do with it in the spring but I have no idea what to do. The house we were in before had a south facing garden and that's what im used to. I'm more into the wildlife type of garden than anything else. Had to leave behind an established wildlife pond at my last place, I just don't know if it's worth putting one in a grim looking garden like this ! I also want some herbs and veg but without much sun is it worth attempting? So basically I'd love some ideas on what to do to make this garden bearable !
edited to add - the garden currently is a patchy poor lawn with a small overgrown border. Not much else. In the front garden it's also a patchy lawn with a clump of marigolds.
