Time to clear a garden

I live in New Orleans, LA. My front yard garden is horrendous. I would like to clear most of it out and put new. Is now a good time or should I wait until spring. It faces east and gets lots of sun. Help

Fall is a good time to clean up the landscape and plant new trees, shrubs and perennials. Wait until the weather cools, and then you can get started.
