Ideas for rear of yard

Hi everyone

Our house looks out over a rear yard with a very unappealing view of a back fence. This fence was recently rebuilt by the school we back onto, and the fencers were over zealous with the construction as can be seen in the photos.

There is an empty soil garden currently, with a large black locust situated on our block next to it, with an even larger eucalyptus on the other side of the fence. We’ve tried growing plants in the soil but everything dies, presumably because of the trees.

I’m looking for ideas to have a more appealing view which will ideally block out the fence. I was wondering if building a raised garden would work, or perhaps others will have better ideas than than?

Appreciate any help! Thanks in advance
