Pallet strawberries!

I think LoganB put membrane or something at the back.  I think I'd use marine ply to make it more substantial  if you wanted it long term. Heavy plastic would probably do the job reasonably well too. I htink she may have gone into the construction on her original thread. Perhaps she'll take a look later

Washing's out anyway - it can take it's chances 

Might have to resort to h****work...

Lots of ferns are happy in dry conditions too Percy so you can always just try a couple of different things and see what does best.

First one looks a bit like a Loosestrife to me. Hope it's not rosebay

Caltha palustris (marsh marigold) is another one that would fit in well Percy. Great pond/bog plant and pretty much evergreen

First one's just a holly I think Percy and the second is geranium 'Wargrave Pink' - grows like  a weed everywhere up here. Netting is probably the best method.

Wouldn't use weedkiller if it was me. Think you'll just have to bite the bullet and dig that out when the time comes. Might be a bit messy but it will settle down in time. In my last garden we had a large pond which was spring fed and there was a little waterfall where the supply came in. We had a cotoneaster and lots of ferns there. Is it dry in that spot or damp? You can get evergreen ferns which would do the job well. Some of the sedges would work too especially if you plant them on an angle.
