Hello Sarico 

well it sounds great.  A sunny side and shady side.  

perhaps a ph test is first see what you can or cannot grow. then think about structure....the build your garden around.  Do you want a fruit and veg patch, a pool, a paving area?  Whatever,,it's all exciting stuff to think about, plan and build.

Bandita, agree with the others.  Dont worry for now.  You will quickly learn how various plants grow and spread and then you can lift them,,move them and divide them.  

Close planting eventually is a big no for to give plants space to give off their beauty.

Edd, a few years back I persuaded the local gc manager to get stocks of oxalis triangularis.   he agreed with me it was an exciting plant...he hadnt heard of it.

i planted it out ....removed it the following year.  Not overrun but the odd piece appears  now and then and I dig it out.
