Start lawn from scratch

I just moved into a new house, and the back yard is absolutely awful! Most of the grass is dead, the rest is patchy and coarse, there's blackberry bushes and English ivy, and old gopher holes as well. I want to remove it all and start from scratch. Ultimately, what I want is a flat plane of dirt so I can build a deck, a flower bed, and a new lawn.

I'm just not sure how to achieve this. Do I just throw a layer of dirt on top of what's already there and smooth it out? Do I have to remove the current dead lawn first? Do I just till it all down? The first picture is what the yard looks like now, with most of the blackberries and ivy removed. The second picture is what I want to end up with, basically just a blank canvas. Any tips would be greatly appreciated!
