Shane Bowler, by coincidence that design was what I was going to suggest. Might i suggest a small tree placed in the left border, and one in the far right border to restrict the view to the end of the garden? Maybe something to partially block the view of the door at the end of the garden, to add mystery?
I'd also create a full length border along the fence to increase the planting area. I border along the hedge makes clearing up hedge cuttings difficult.
Perhaps stepping stones in the lawn (low enough to mow over) leading to the first border to the left, continuing through the border (but hidden by plants) and then curving across the lawn to the for right border. This gives an alternative route to the bottom of your garden and keeps the lawn in good order during winter, preventing muddy footprint areas.
