Hebel walls come up quicker than Brick....thus requiring scaffolding rental for less time.

Contact the neighbors and check with them (to avoid issues later on). What type of fence do you have in mind? Colorbond fence panels can be quickly removed and refitted…

please recommend some plants for my new garden

A good approach is to visit some LOCAL nursery and discuss with them your requirement and soil type. They will give you a good list of plants that will thrive…

Shower size

800mm too tight. One can have a shower, but difficult for arm movements inside.
If space is a constraint min 950mm.

Plants for 2-3m hedge?

Talk to a LOCAL nursery (not Bunnings). They will know what grows best in the locale. Climate in Sydney varies as you know. Soil type, sun orientation are equally important.

I also recommend you drive around your estate which will give an idea about what combinations look good in that surrounding.
