Our new back garden is mostly on a slope with some flat bits in the middle. Is it better to leave sloped or to tier?

It depends how steep the slope is and if you intend to lawn it. It's difficult to mow safely a steep slope. If you add some photos for us we can make better suggestions.

Nice to have a 'blank canvas' to begin. I would terrace it with certain species of plants on each tier, which may need some kind of support to stop the soil washing downhill in winter rains. No shrubs or trees.
The existing flat area would make a nice 'patio' to sit on to relax.
Plants at lower prices can be found from friends , Church Flower Festivals, little stalls outside houses in the country, markets etc. Growing from seed at this time of year will provide plants for next year.
Good luck.

Our garden is on quite a steep slope and we made 3 levels.
