Getting to grips with gardening

hi everyone, just moved into a new house after previously living in a flat. No experience gardening so I've decided to join this forum and have already taken some inspiration. Garden had a LOT of weeds. From what I have begun to understand they were perennial. Either way around a week or so ago I put down some glyphosate that my friends dad had given me in a sprayer. Seems to have done the job but now I want to know what the next step is. Ideally would like to plant grass seed on the ground you can see in the foreground and perhaps some raised beds up at the rear once I remove those small bushes. I just need to know should I strim and remove all the weed above soil level or turn over whole lot and remove by hand. Just not sure how to proceed with it. Thanks in advance
as you weed/clear and do the landscaping bit, you could get a few seed packets and start growing on a few plants for later, they can always go in pots if you find the soil/situation isn't going to suit a plant you have grown.
Come the autumn you can finalise your plans and get cracking.
