Beef dripping is much better than lard - lard is too greasy and birds wipe their beaks on their feathers and that damages the insulation qualities and can cause real problems.

I would think some sort of grill/grating and drains leading to a soak-away would be needed.

Rb ((hugs)) for you and your family - you must all be feeling so stressed and angry. 

The tree is down - I've chosen a large log to keep in the garden as a 'coffee table' - now the men are clearing up. 

Why has a thread disqppeared? Who decided?

I too enjoy the banter on here - I don't enjoy reading personal attacks on other posters simply because they hold a different view.  That is not banter - that is bullying

 

Thyme and sedum - plant them out now?

I'd rather trim them back and put them somewhere a bit sheltered where they won't get the worst of the winter weather, then plant them out in gritty soil in the spring.

If they're in the ground and get too soggy or get snow on them for a while they won't be happy.

The ash tree has two quite large trunks from just a couple of feet above the ground, so it's like felling two trees really - hence it costing £550!!!  Glad he knocked a bit off for the logs.  However, that does include grinding the stump out - that'll happen in a couple of weeks' time.

I've been thinking of the old Blue Peter Garden that Percy Thrower created - it had a sunken garden with a pond in the middle of it - but I wouldn't do anything like that without putting in some proper drainage.
