Pyracantha kept trimmed to a slim hedge is a great anti climb deterrant

Good idea despair.

Alternatively, could you install a garden sprinkler or one of those automated water-squirting devices designed to deter cats. Could you mulch your garden adjacent to the fence with a thick layer of horse manure? Even better, use both: wet horse manure tends to stick to shoes as well as balls.

Hi all,

many of you have suggested to the OP that he replace the existing fence, which sounds reasonable EXCEPT the OP had informed you the fence is a 'joint' fence according to the deeds.

the OP hasn't visited GL since receiving such advice.

he may now be making arrangements that could lead to further trouble with a neighbour with whom he already has a problem.

Dismayed regards, Mac

arsie wrote:I agree with Mac re confirming who is responsible. The first step is your and the neighbours' deeds to see exactly what they say - or don't say - about any responsibility for maintaining a fence. People often mis-interpret these. You can get deeds online from the Land Registry for a small fee if you don't have them to hand. Post up the exact words so we can see - the devil is in the detail I'm afraid.


The OP has not returned but this advice stands: the wording in the deeds should be stated for us verbatim just so we can all be sure who is responsible for the fencing and to what extent. There can be many interpretations and it's not always unambiguously clear who is responsible for what. Can we see the original wording of the deeds about the fencing please?

I then went on to suggest options and others have elaborated but we first need to confirm the words in the deeds, I think.
