I wouldn't rush into this for a start.
You need to ph test your,soil......then you and us will know what sort,of plants you can grow. Is it well drained soil or heavy clay? South facing so a warm garden? Can you post a picture?
Do you want a lawn? Lots of plants or low maintenance? Do you have eyesores you want to block from view?
A blank canvass is ideal. I'm sure you will get lots of ideas and suggestions but it would be good to start sketching out some plans......on the fence you might want some scented climbers or trained fruit. You might like a meandering path, a pool, a patio etc. decide what you want from it from the outset.
£1000 is plenty ....unless you have a huge plot. You don't say how big it is either
