I would take some pictures as you see things that pop up , just in case you forget where things are and make a plan of the grounds using graph paper ie. little squares it is then easy to plot where things are , soil type , trees , boggy bits ect.

Sounds really exciting , everything else has been said , best of luck

Yes , squash the bug and leave the cutting to spring 

A couple of years a go I started putting Hortucultrual grit in the top of large pots and it seems to stop larver living in the soil 

Great plants fusias , have several hardy ones myself

Gardengirl thank for site info , been having a look most impressed with your cold frame 

Last time I took a pallet apart all it was good for was fire wood , probably a bit heavy handed , unless there is a Nack ?
