looking straight down the gap separating the 2 extensions, please bear in mind that the boundary on the documentation suggests a straight line through the house's and the back gardens. hedge in question on the right

Hi jdfi, I have cut the hedge back by about 3 feet and it has made a difference, however it will grow back and tbh i cannot stand the sight of it anymore and it needs to go

Seems simple enough to me - you want hedge gone, fence up, and its all on your land.


I reckon the only thing stopping you is yourself. You're thinking this to death. Bit more action, bit less cogitation.....

hi ntdwm, i will erect the fence starting at the corner of my extension so within my boundary and just have 4 panels in a line until it reaches the trees 1/3 into the garden (just inside the hedge line in the photo). tbh, it will not impact his side of the garden, it just means that he will have a fence to look at instead of a hedge, he will still have his privacy and so will i, also i dont intend on putting up cheap fencing as i have seen some panels which are very contemporary and modern looking

If your assumptions are correct, you are about to lose some land - bad solution.

tbh folks, over the last 7 years or so i have been living there we have had this hedge to deal with. i just want to free up the garden and enjoy it without the fear of seeing Dr Livingstone wander out of the hedge. If the fence is on my boundary and all i lose is about 50cm of land then so be it, better than the 4ft i have lived with so far. Anyway once the hedge is gone i and the landscaper will have a better idea of where we can erect the fence

Hi garfield,

why is there a 60cm gap between the two extensions?

surely since you own up to the centre of the dividing party wall and allegedly have a "straight" boundary it would be relatively straightforward to ascertain whose land the hedge is on?

Kind regards, Mac

True - but the law presumes you will fence to the fullest extent of your land, if you don't and don't rectify it straightaway - you have lost land.


Arborlad I find your comments dictatorial; rather than knowledgeable.



:lol: :lol:



@Garfield, I believe you have a good solution regarding the privacy you want and the pleasing aesthetics of the fence.



The main purpose of a boundary fence is to define and secure the land of its owner, to do that they must abut the known boundary, but fences are very good at multi-tasking, they can be aesthetically pleasing and provide privacy anywhere on your land, they can only define the limit of your land when set at the edge of your land.

Hi mac, the gap between the 2 extensions, i can only guess is due to the 17 year gap when they were built...other than that i have no idea.

arborlad, with regards to the fence tbh i dont know where it will go. once the hedge comes down i will have a better idea of where the boundary meets my garden and then i will ascertain where the fence goes. needless to say my neighbour is going to be somewhat ruffled either way

Very true Mac, if only it was that easy. if it was then all the golf courses in the UK will be choked with lawyers and surveyors, but instead we read about £100k+ court cases because people will only believe in what they want to believe in and will fight to the bitter end irrespective of the consequances
