Hello Rebecca, I can't access either of your links sorry.

What's the star in your garden right now

Lovely photos; incredible colour on the Rudbeckia

Please help, have I caused irreversible damage and if so what can I do?

Privet as mentioned by Verdun above is very forgiving; some neighbours chopped theirs down to 3' high sticks and a year later it was 6' tall and flourishing.

Obelisk

I have 2 shorter obelisk type shapes, they are in large pots, supporting clematis and have been there for about 3 years I think. Had to bend the legs in a bit with pliers to fit pots. I would think that whatever plant you have growing up it will anchor it pretty well

Create a feature using top soil

Or, since you have the digger in, dig out a circle, bank up the earth gently, including the soil from the patio and have a really protected sunken garden. See pics from The Old Vicarage at East Ruston to get a feel for this kind of thing. You could grow quite tender plants because they would be protected from the worst of the weather.

Fishy, you could cut down a buddlea to the ground and it would bounce back with knobs on
