Drought is a possibility, although fancy tulips often don't last more than a year or two before disappearing.
Frank, do you think you could keep your showers up there? I got drenched coming home at lunchtime.
And now, of course, the sun is shining...
You really need to move it away from the heater.
If you can't, you can try sitting it, in its base, on a large tray of damp pebbles.
They won't re-grow from any bits of roots left, if that's what you mean. A lot of their roots are near-surface, but they do spread quite far - if they are really large you might find it hard work.
It depends which herbs they are - some are much hardier than others. Rosemary is of Mediterranean origin, so not that tough, especially not in a pot with no real root protection.
You really need to introduce curves into your garden, shaping he lawn into something other than a rectangle. Then you could probably benefit from a few "focal points" in the form of trees or large shrubs; once you have these, you can design around them.
I'd agree with figrat - try and get some cuttings going, they do root easily. It doesn't sound like your plant is very healthy at all.
Can you post a photo? These sound like suckers from a tree rather than individual saplings, and you need to sort out where they are coming from. If you trim suckers, as you have been doing, they just grow more strongly than ever.
I wouldn't necessarily expect pruning to rejuvenate a tree of that age and size - they are normally left to grow unhindered. The growth to one side will probably be because of wind direction or shadow from other trees.
I would try giving it a good feed and clearing any undergrowth from around it to see what effect that has.
