Id start with a blank canvas. clear it back then you might find ideas just flow once you see what you have. as others have said freecycle even bay of e you might just find some quality old tools dirt cheap. i brought a 30 odd year old fork from bay of e and its very good quality for £10.68. best bargin ever!
if you can get some free or cheap wood raised beds but that's not really necessarily that important to make the garden look nice if you cant at mo free or cheap.
Have you got a mate with a pressure washer you can borrow? if not scrubbing brush and elbow grease that's of course if you don't wanna buy/hire a pressure washer
If the fences are in ok condition some paint would brighten it all up or you could get a few climbers.
Tools been mentioned above.
hope in someway mine helps just a little
