OH's family had a Patterdale x Lakeland, and their next door neighbour has had  Patterdales for years, as have all their sons. - dogs of character

My parents had a Cedrus deodara aurea in their last garden - they planted it when my daughter was born 37 years ago - it's a gorgeous and elegant tree - the space where it stands looks roughly the same size as that part of your garden (if that makes sense )
