Area around fruit trees

We have 4 apple and 2 plum trees at the bottom of our terraced steep garden which we inherited when we moved under 2 yrs ago. We need to do something about this part of the garden. Should we try and level it and make paths (lots of work), or should we plant anything around trees for ground cover? We have recently changed the shed but any work we do in this area means carrying materials etc down a steep slope!

Any suggestions would be welcomed.

I suggest that you should level it and make paths, that would make it much much easier to walk. If you plant anything around trees, the situations might get much worse.
