    You have a lot of land! I’d suggest getting things in the ground whilst it’s still warm so the roots can get down. Some paulownia would be good to get some height and then pollard it each year. Also catalpa bignonoides Aurea. Gunnera around your ponds seems a great idea. Stuff that can be easily divided makes sense in general like big grasses. Buy canna from garden centres/Homebase type shops once they look tatty and are discounted. This spring bought canna Musifolia online and from bare roots in April they’re now 3m tall and pupping ready to be divided.
