Help with Design Please

Need some help with the landscaping around this patio. The customer wants something that is fairly low to maintain and that is pretty simple. They dont spend a ton of time on this side of the house. The patio faces the north. I would probably want to have a bed from the AC unit along the side of the house all the way to the end of the patio. The burning bushes are going to stay and a 4 foot chainlink fence is going to come off the corner of the house right behind the burning bushes.
I am in Zone 5

Defiantly need some kind of wall to keep the soils up there and off the apron, drive, I would suggest that before you do any planting.

I knew that would come up. It looks worse in the pictures than in person.. I was thinking I could do a little regrading and plant ground cover.. Maybe I crazy. I am having a friend come buy that has been in the business for 20 years or so to give me his input.
