What to plant in an exposed boarder.

Here is my lovely garden in pictures taken when we first moved in. It is south facing but, as you can see, it has lots of trees and backed onto a park with even more trees.
The garden is terraced as its on quite a slope. We have taken out the lavender bush that you can see in the 3rd picture.
What could we put in its place?
We have been in our house for a year now, what other suggestions would you have for it?

I forgot to mention that the drop on the other side of the boarder is about 5ft. Not that it makes a difference really, but it does make it a little exposed.

That is not exposed, that is sheltered.

What I would put there is...some sort of black elder.

I guess it's not exposed really is it. I was just thinking of the drop on the other side and that it's not against a wall or fence.
I came from a terrace with a tiny courtyard garden.
