Raised beds sound like a good idea, and I like the idea of an arch too. Looks like a great project. I gave my garden a bit of a refurb last year and my only pointer would be to make sure if you do gravel/wood chips in any areas, or even paving, get some weed control fabric down under it, so save you lots of de-weeding in the future! You can put it in the raised beds too if you do them. I found quite a lot of useful stuff on this website when I was re-designing my garden and it was all pretty cheap for what I needed : http://www.qvsshop.co.uk/weed-control-fabric-63-c.asp. Good luck!
