Garden in a mid 19C property

I am shortly going to be moving into my new home - a mid 19th century terraced house. There is a small yard to the rear which has an area that has been raised one brick high and filled with gravel. I would like to make this area a more softer seating area for those times I would like to get out and enjoy the space. What would you suggest I could do? I’m a single woman but have a bit of indoor DIY experience but don’t have much of a clue about outdoor work as I’ve lived in a flat the last 20 years. Thank you
