I've been wondering - why are those trees coming up between paving stones? Did you plant them? Did they just grow? I would keep a Rowan, I like them and trees give character and shade and somewhere for birds to sit, but I don't think they are in the right place. They look so in the middle. They should have earth around them to let rain in and to breathe and allow the trunks to grow, as obelixx has said.
Is there much more garden that we can't see in the photo? Where is the flower bed? Which bits get sun? You wouldn't want to block it all out.
