How about a compromise Paulie. Make one wider border at the bottom, could you afford some 1ft paving slabs, not over the lot, but you could put some tubs/pots of nice things on those and in the gaps put climbers. The baby has to have room to play.
The plants you have there already are looking lovely, let them grow and spill over the lawn, they will soften the edges.
