Back yard garden area

Hi there everyone, im new here and I will be grateful for all your help. I have recently moved and in my backyard there is an area which can be made into a small garden area. (I like to grow flowers ) .Now there is no soil in this area and I just wondered what kind of soil do i get. Do I fill it full of compost and soil, Just soil, I am  not sure what to do, Any advice is welcome for a novice. image Thanks everyone

    Hi Suziqc and welcome image

    A few questions for you:

    if there is no soil - is it paving/concrete or what?

    how big an area are we looking at?

    which way does it face?  

    what time of day does it get the sun and when is it in shadow?

    does it have fences and if so what type and how high?

    could you post a photo or two on here to give us a better idea of what we're looking at?  (to post photos click on the little tree picture on the toolbar at the top when you post a reply)image
