How to turn this dumping ground into gracious greenery...?

Thank you for the replies!

I think ultimately, we're not wanting to stay in this area for too long so putting lots of time and money into the garden would be daft.  I think I'd rather just lay a lawn over the whole thing if that is the simplest way of making the garden look more appealing.  

Your comment about the hardcore has scared me Busy Bee,  I hope it's a little easier to get up that you think! :S

How to turn this dumping ground into gracious greenery...?

Hi All,

I've recently bought my first house, yay!  I have also acquired a rather large dump site that I assume at one stage used to be a garden (please see picture below).  I really don't have green fingers at all, or a lot of disposable cash at the moment.  I was wondering if you could give me some advice on how to return the garden to former glory.  I ideally want a lawn and a place at the back to grow veggies.   I have a 10 month old who would really love to be able to crawl in the garden!

The front of the garden is sand, the middle is grass, there is a section of hardcore that acted as the foundation for a concrete base and the back seems to be mostly clay.

Any ideas on where to start would be most welcome, thanks!
