Landscaping quote for planters

I don't know who charged you for that but they should be shot. I'd never supply one of my customers with anything I hadn't personally bought and checked myself.

Pond or not

Ponds don't need to be expensive, it's the digging out which is the hard work. Even a small pond, half the size of the above area can be very effective. Go for half the area above and get it right in the first place and it will do you for years.

Plant ID please

I think fidget is closer to the mark, it's not bubbleia or lavatera, stems and leaves are wrong for both. Although the green stems aren't suggestive of deutzia's.

I seriously doubt it will be a major problem unless we have a biblical flood. You can always build up the sides of the pond and plant marginal plants to reduce the chances of it happening.

Can anyone identify please?

Might be iris fotedissima.

Wisteria support

You have to re-wire it really. I don't know what anchors you used originally but you have to get the screw in type and drill it into the brickwork, not the mortar. You can get different lengths although they can be a bugger to find. Builders merchants are your best bet for finding the longer ones. Cut the original wires after you've re strung the wire frame. The wisteria will just grow round the wire, it won't harm the stems.

Hibiscus not flowering

Have a look at the rootball, if all the roots are on the outside then one size bigger pot, if not keep it in the same pot.

Sorry ladycruiser, it's a myth.

I'd repot using John Innes No3 compost. Although they like good drainage they do like a drink, give it a feed with a high potash fertilizer (tomato food) around June, they flower late so be prepared to wait a bit.

I'd go with the Italian cypress, they look gorgeous in the right setting a perfect fit for your gap.
