First Job I'd do is Paint the Fence...with all the new Colors available your spoiled for choice...then I'd remove the Bricks and replace them with Pebbled Stones again you have several choices of Color...if you could show another Photo a bit further back it would display more of the area and give a better idea.

There are also many Garden Decorations you can screw onto the Fence to add more Color...your Imagination is your limit... Very Happy

I agree with Geranimojess about painting the fence, why not make it a brighter colour? Also I would suggest you buy some more colourful plants to add. This will make your garden look brighter and more lively

I'd put climbing roses on the back fence, trained on wires, I'd lift the back two slabs and replace them with Dryopteris ferns. I'd make a small pond where the little statue is. I'd have three hanging baskets, and line them, rather than just using them as a pot holder, and change the plants and compost seasonally.
