What city are you in? If your yard slopes and collects a lot of water, consider water loving plants. Birch trees like "wet feet". I would need to know what zone you are in to give more detailed suggestions. In terms of a deck or patio, I would say definitly! Outdoor living space should be an extension of the indooe living place. It really becomes an additional "room" for your home. Again, your climite would determine a more detailed answer from me.

Would you be willing or able to change one of the windows in the back into a sliding or french door for easy access to tthe new patio?

I am in bath Ontario, which is near Kingston, Ontario. The large window you see at the back are sliding patio doors. The dirt you see to the south of the lot is a vacant lot which will have a house on it soon. The property line ends where you see the large tree and there is house there already. There is a swale on the south and west side of the house. The house faces east and we get no sun on the north side, which will have a fence erected to muffle street noise. I hope this helps. Where are you located?

Could the sloping land be terraced, like in Machu Picchu, Peru?

Ah, maybe I should have suggested a landscaping crew install retaining walls in tiers.
