    old cracked concrete

    I would love the grid stuff, but its so expensive, it is the same cost as block paving in total, so unless you specifically want the grids and gravel, then I would personally rather have block paving.

    an inspiring new town garden (I think!)

    With walls like those you can hardly go wrong. What wonderful backdrops to the planting. With so many evergreens it will look good in winter too.
