Backyard Ideas needed

I have a 50' x 100' backyard. I've planted four trees, laid out a raised garden, put in a fire pit and have one established shade tree, the rest is dirt. What do I do with this!

    What do you envision for that area,what has always been in your heart for a garden. Do you want a patio by the shade three to enjoy the summer. When you say laid out and planted was it symmetrical are you into English style gardens with low hedges everything in its place. Do you like water features like a fountain or a pond? It's seems like you would need to decide what is important for you to have,what can you keep up and what you absolutely do not want. So many options. Then once you figure that out just search here for inspiration and detailed instructions.

    Thank you so much! I wish I could have gotten the picture to download. The trees are symmetrical, hoping for them to be big enough one day for a hammock or two. I'm in Southern CA so any water feature will not work, still in a drought :-(
    A dry river and gravel sounds like a good plan.
