If I got it right, I wouldn´t level the driveway below 1, since coming out of the garage
may be difficult in rainy/frosty weather; keep it even with the road, and pave a little
slope for access to the house.
Now for the front of the garden: 4 and 3 means the hedges are on high soil level,
right? If you remove them and dig the soil, first you´ll need a containment wall, then
shrubs or trees to screen the garden and the house from view and noise.
Don´t forget drainage pipes along the containment wall (or your garden will be
drenched with road water) and anywhere else there is a slope.
