comment What size posts do I need to use to build a wooden driveway gate?
minimum 4"X4" if < 3ft wide gate, 3-6ft gate = 5"x5", >6ft = 6"x6" or greater if you can get them. In reality I tend toward the bigger is better school-of-thought...

comment What is the best mix for cement render?
TravisPUK, not got a plasticiser container to check at the moment, but the amount you use is minimal - something like half a cup per cement mixer full or a 'cap-full' if mixing a smaller amount by hand.

comment How to promote garden drainage?
I'd also recommend a French drain - use 20mm+ stone and some sort of membrane into the unfilled drain and over the top of the filled drain to stop soil washing into the drain and clogging it over time.
