I would remove all the vegetation and level the soil then add about two inches of builder's sand to the area so you can set the bricks and stones and planters inot the sand to help anchor them. After placing the sand, install the bricks, then the planters, then the rocks and finish up by installing the gravel. Sounds like a great weekend project. Enjoy!
