About This Space

We bought our home 3 months ago and we have a backyard that is ~2000 sqft. but its empty, dirt everywhere with tons of weeds growing all over the place. We need some ideas. We want a nice space for our 3 young children and our German Shepard. Budget is very tight with about $500 right now and about $100 a month to invest. Current plan is to till the ground, grade for runoff and seed grass. We're able to put in the time and effort necessary to get this done, but we're both completely unexperienced and have no imagination.
