3' high raised bed advice welcomed

Whatever you build it from, it needs to be able to support 5 tons of soil; think about the weight of two Jeeps. And will concrete blocks look that nice, even painted blue? I suppose it depends on the style of the rest of your garden.

Water butts, decking, diverters and overflowing

Your decking will be wet or damp for long periods at certain times of year. The occasional heavy storm won't add significantly to this, so don't worry!

Can't see the pics. The fact that the neighbour is an idiot is irrelevant in considering whether you're making his or his successor's garden unstable.

Any Hayter experts out there?

These aren't big lawns. I'm inclined to say nip down to B and Q (other big sheds are available) and buy a £60 electric mower - light as a feather - and then when it breaks, buy another. I wouldn't go beyond the push model Hayter or perhaps the Honda Izy equivalent at similar price.

The first thing I'd do is talk to the neighbours beyond the fence; you might find they would have some pretty strong feelings about their garden being undermined!
