Random design ideas:I'd like bluestone steps set into the rise of the front yard: one set from the driveway in front of the dogwood up to the front walk - S shaped. The second mirroring that, coming from the walk at the light post, curving around the post and the planting bed to the right.
And re-do the concrete walk in bluestone, maybe add some gentle curves.

This idea, only far fewer steps, maybe just a set of 6 or so.
Perhaps like this:
Or maybe this, but curving more around the dogwood bed and around the light post
