Thats a nice looking garden, I love the Terrace's. Once you clear out all the old plants weeds etc youll'e be amazed at the space you have, There's lots of garden ideas in GOY, have a browse at the pics..Then decide what you want from your garden, there's lots to consider, how much sun/shade What soil you have, and What sort of plants u like, a mixture of evergreens, Perrenials, and a good start with the bulbs Delbert..You have loads of planning to do, The best advice I can give is, Take Your Time, Because Gardening is an expensive (in my case obsession) ...Dee..

You have a lovely tiered structure to your garden and it will look tremendous. Think about some plants that will cascade over the terraces to soften them.You could choose a classical design or a contemporary one...... the possiblities are endless with your terrace. You could take the steps up through the middle in a staggered shape so that you have borders each side, and it will probably make the terraces easier to maintain.The bottom terrace could be converted into a small pond so that you have water near your seating area with a pathway surrounding the water. Take your time..... and get some big sheets of paper and sketch out different designs, then you can choose your favourite.Hope this helps.
Best wishes,
