I fear it will rot starting from your side. But see what other people think.

Re the other part of your question, I don't know what type 1 rubble isbut I don't think you need all topsoil over that depth. I can't do sums very well but length x width x height gives you the cubic measurement and a lot of those big bags hold a cubic metre.

I don't think a pond liner will protect a wooden fence. Wood needs to breath, Having a pond liner against it won't stop it getting wet when it rains but will stop it drying afterwards.

I think Invicta is right. Aralia elata.

Beech chippings

It probably depends on what you're chipping and what the plants are. Most of mine goes through the shredder and gets put straight on the garden around plants but not tiny plants. Tiny ones would probably be OK if the blackbirds stopped kicking it around. 

Very little of my shreddings comes from conifers which could be where the acid and resin comes from.

Soil is full of life normally.Worms pull leaves etc down from the surface and create more humus and it all gets churned round. Insects come and go. It all stops when you put a layer of weed membrane in

The fancy Digitalis purpurea types will seed back to normal eventually, some types quicker than others.
