I love your garden LF. The path down the side is a good idea - hedges are a pain if they're at the back of a border and no proper footing for pruning and clipping.
You could make your grass an oval - on the angle. Similar position to where it is now. Make the pond as big as you can and within decent sight of the house. You'll spend hours looking at it - especially in winter
If a plant's not earning it's keep- be ruthless. List the ones you're unsure of, then look them up in a catalogue and ask yourself if you were buying everything brand new for the garden, would you buy those?
That's my tuppence worth
