fidgetbones, I'd remove those pictures if I was you, on health and safety grounds. There should be a steel mesh cover over the pond incase you fall in, those puppy's could bite you, and there's not a hint of any CBRN checked adult supervisor. What if a paedo came and snatched you away?

What were you thinking 

Greenhouse electrified!

Why can't they invent wireless electricity, would be so much easier

Box hedge and alliums will look amazing, they work extremely well together, especially box balls.

Will you be relying on the hedge to keep the dogs off the garden? Box is a very slow growing hedge and will take a few years to get to any height. You could put a piquet fence along the hedge line, with a gate at each end to allow you access onto the lawn.

Planting suggestions for new path?

Verdun, that plant does look nice by a path. Is it also known as Car Mint? My path will be made using blocks and will look similar to this one, so it could be a nice combination...

I live a short drive from a live food supplier which is where I get my live mealworms from. I usually put them out around nesting time....

I run over my privet cuttings with my mower, then tip them onto the compost.

When making that garden I had a local saw mill make a bespoke trellis archway & gate that fitted within the fence and allowed access to the patio, whilst keeping the dogs off...

 I dug up quite a few of the plants and they came with me to the new house. I even arranged for the sales brochure to state that some of the plants were not included in the house purchase!!
