Go for a dwarf rye mix Gothic.  A standard hard wearing freely available type 

because it is mild you could sow now but best to wait a couple of months.....If conditions are warm late March

Paul, good in a sort of rockery, or pot or near smaller plants.  As dove said, you can't really call it a tree.  I don't grow this but I have planted one.  Beautiful in flower but best not in the showiest spot during summer

you could plunge it, pot and all, in the ground for now until you decide exactly where you want it

Chris,,you are over thinking,,over worrying about a normal lawn issue. ,

r e l a x.....don't bother with any lawn specialist.

you can prevent crane fly visits eventually by interrupting the breeding cycle.  

Those leatherjackets will go,,spring will be fine but just comsider nems for autumn

I just bought the biggest.....and I mean the BIGGEST teddy bear ever for my soon to be great nephew.  Every female from tot to er, older....went weak at the knees with an 'aaaaaaah" so I guess I chose well.  Walking down the town with it was surprisingly unembarrassing prob due to a couple of strongbows earlier imbibed .  (Not driving folks ). Cant buy any more plants for a while though 

rain has gone too. ,
