I would add trees/shrubs around the fence to add height to disguise the differences in height. Tall plants where the fence is lowest and smaller ones where it is highest. I would also move the shed to the top left hand side to get it out of the way.
I also find Lupins grow so fast in spring/summer that it outgrows any slug damage very quickly. A small amount of slug pellets would help in early spring but only if you want to.
I would put up a 6ft fence as well. All plants planted will take years to give a really good privacy belt and a fence will really help.
Yip, Celmisia spectablis. Lovely plant that is difficult to find - I have been on the out look for it!
"The point is to scatter thinly around all susceptible plants and not to turn the earth blue."
LOL. I have seen people literally cover the top layer of pots with the blue pellets.
I thought the trend for raised beds was to make an area look nice? Rendered ones tend to incorporate seating and you can see plants better by being at eye level. It is more a garden room trend.
Diluted Chlorine bleach will kill it.
You really need to take pics of them in leaf...
Looks quite nice. You get black squirrels in Canada and northern US states, so not unique.
It looks large enough to flower this year
