I'd echo what LB has said, apart from the compost bit as I don't do that. The other thing you will need is a good strong back but unfortunately you can't buy one of those
The only thing I would add is be careful how you handle those weeds. Don't be tempted to rotavate the area unless you have an idea what weeds are growing as you could make things worse if you have any real nasties. I'd probably weed by hand and and then identify which weeds come back. You could then check how best to treat them.
Good luck with the garden
