If the unun is screwed to the wall, and the wire travels down the garden, to some power cord attached to a pole, can the power cord hold the turn, or does the wires have to be some distance apart if that makes sense

Do you mean a length of power cord attached to the insulator on the end of the long wire to support it.
If that is it then yes that would be ok.
Also the tin shed shouldn't be a problem.
I use a pully and paracord at each end of mine makes it easy to take down (cord attached to unun).
