Hello Benjamin

I've never grown them and know little about them other than that they grow naturally in bogs and wet ground.  It could be that even with regular watering, they still need more moisture in order to flower and fruit well.

Can anyone help identify these shrubs/bushes?

The evergreen shrub at the far end of the picture is a Choisya,, and as Flowers says the nearest one is a hydrangea.  Both are shallow rooted shrubs and will do no damage to buildings.

No need to worry about those.

There's something a bit taller to the right of the caravan - I can't see it clearly enough to identify it.
