Back garden design

Evening all. My wife and I are desperate to re-design our back garden. We inherited the current garden from previous house owners. We have a 3 year old and 1 year old so need to make it more child friendly with a lawn. Our garage is very small so need a shed too. Attached is a basic plan we have done on a website. I’d appreciate your thoughts on our design. At the front we’d like new patio of porcelain tiles, steps up to a lawn, path leading to the right past existing apple tree up towards a 8x6 shed. Retaining wall at front to be rendered in white. Considering putting raised beds on top of wall to act as a means to prevent children from falling off lawn on top. We’re also thinking about a raised bed across back of garden. Please can we have feedback on our design and suggestions on suitable plants. Garden is west facing but only has gardens beside it to the left so plenty of sun hits garden from south direction too. Warm regards, David and Dawn
