It's a Liverwort   I find them fascinating. 

If you can change the conditions so the lawn and borders are less damp and compacted it will be much less of a nuisance.

Have you tried reducing the size of the photos?  

There should be a green bar appear along the bottom of the text box to show its uploading

That sounds like a really nice mix  ... similar to hedges we had when we lived in rural Mid Suffolk  .... nice to have the dog rose in there to knit it all together ... when it all gets established you could introduce a honeysuckle as well

Looks to me as if it's died down for autumn ... it should reappear in the spring

Hi Peachcake 

To upload photos click on the camera icon and follow the instructions ... if the photos don't upload within a minute or two try reducing the size ... that usually works

Life is full of coincidences ... Essex isn't known for its mountain ranges, but it does seem that there are two Alps there 

What sort of plants are you planning for your mixed wildlife hedge?

Don't worry about the photo being upside down ... there's a glitch on the forum and that sometimes happens to all of us.

I don't think I'd do much to the tree other than take out any branches that are crossing and rubbing on each other .... cut them back close to but not quite flush with the trunk.  

Otherwise I'd leave it alone ... 'tidying' it could result in a sort of 'lollipop effect' which would look unnatural and a bit odd.

Just make sure that the ties around the trunk and stake are loosened regularly and not rubbing on the bark.  

You have a lovely garden
