Andyhux- firstly your garden has loads of potential. Plenty of hard land scaping for paths and patio, and a defined fence.
I agree with everything which has been said and would add, whilst you are doing the tasks suggested think ahead to next year- painting the fence will brighten up the area and often at the end of summer paint for fences can be picked up cheaply especially if they have dents in the tin, painting can be a job for the spring, you will be suprised how far a tub of fencing paint costing £10 will go and the feel good factor is a bonus when you sit back and take in your hard work... on the patio with the children.
You have lots of pots with plants in, not looking at their best at present, decide what you don't want by way of plants, empty the pots, give them a good clean and stack in a safe place for plants you will buy at the end of the summer or in spring or obtain through recycle, friends and family .
