Your big plants really dominate and taking them out would be a solution and give you a feel of more space straightaway. Your bay tree could be dug out and planted in a pot and you could topiarise it to keep it manageable. You can also grow some veggies in amongst your plants. Or even in pots. An annual patch you can change year on year and use hot colours - Cannas, californian poppy, all sorts. And don't forget that there is a seed swap thread so you may find something there.
