I agree, if you can't move the seat, remove the little beds but enjoy them for the summer first. But expand, make more of the edge beds.

Never mind the daisies, they're lovely. I hate grass without the extras

Relax, yes. Most important.

Crown imperials are a bit like that, don't give up. Sooner or later they'll perform

Grass is fine, I think I can see some daisies

You might try being a bit more expansive, maybe not quite the right word, but in the bottom pic, rather than the small beds, have a larger curving bed to include all the little ones. Less edge cutting to deal with and more plant space. and broader beds round the edge big enough for a few shrubs to add height. Perhaps arbour and the seat in the top right

I'm no designer though. I can do yours in theory better than my own in practice

The top one in front of the hostas is a willowherb

the second Frtillaria imperialis, crown imperial, dying back after flowering.

Kniphofia start flowering at the bottom and work upwards, by the time the top ones open the bottom ones are dying off. It looks normal to me
