Viburnum opulus is deciduous.

This will take any amount of hacking back, I usually do mine in winter.

Now, I'd remove anything that's dead or nearly dead, right to base. If it has lost roots it would help if you reduced some of the top growth as well. You could leave it with the OK bits on the lower right. Unless you've killed it by hacking its roots it will survive the prune

You need to clear and prepare soil like setting seed for any other plants. That sort don't grow in grass.

Sow and enjoy, let them seed, cut them back and rake a bit and it looks fine in winter. They'll reseed and the perennial will regrow the next year. 

Alpine Strawberry - Fragaria vesca

no, that will be OK. Strawbs have male and female bits in the same flower.

2 x ID please

Threadworms in soil?

soil is full of assorted organisms, large and small. Part of life, unlikely to be harmful.
