    I'd mow it, weed it, get rid of the dead tree in the middle (unless it isn't dead and is about to flower) edge the bit around the tree/flowers, and replace the rocks with new mulch.

    It's not too bad as it is, but depends how much you want to spend.

    thanks did the moving last evening :p, after loosing some money on the horses. yea i think the tree in the middle is dead not sure what to replace it with. also do you think a raised garden will suit my 20 year old house.

    I don't believe a raised garden will do much for resale.
    I would mow the lawn and make sure it is weed free - edge the lawn to the pavers and front path. Get rid of old dead tree and try and find a specimen tree of reasonable size to replace it.
    Make sure the pavers are free of moss/ dirt etc and you are done :)
    Get the council to replace the cracked path would be a bonus!
