I think you need to deal with the bramble first, nettles will seed for years, you can eliminate the plants you have but not the seeds. Nettle is easily dealt with by mowing. I have loads of nettles but none in mown grass. Ivy is capable of making long low growths below mower blade level so mowing doesn't do for that..
It's dig or chemical whichever way you choose but I wouldn't leave them, especially bramble
