Hummingbird HMs love lavender.

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.

Let's hope your neighbour is insured.

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!

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.
