Lovely ideas above, tackling in sections, trying themed terraces, peeping over fences...I mean getting inspiration from other gardens.... And figuring out what you want from your garden.
Can I also suggest figuring out what you would like to try the most, or what you're best at, and starting there? For example, if you're keen on flowers, why not clear a patch and get some going. Or, if you're big on veg, find space for a veg plot. It's always nice to dive in with something you're really keen on, rather than floundering on with a job you hate (even if it does need doing eventually) especially to start with.
Once you've found your feet, and feeling more adventurous, you can crack on with the jobs you're less familiar with.
Folks here are brilliant at offering encouragement and ideas
