Re: i am sure its mine

Karl, i really wouldn't worry. I had a not dissimilar issue though it came to nothing. My garden was there since the terraced houses were built over 45 years ago but going strictly on what would be a normal boundary line i.e. equidistant between both front windows, part of my garden would belong to ...

Re: Trespassing

I installed a trellis planter on the boundary that they were encroaching over and then a row of rocks and bushes, Eliza.

Re: Trespassing

Eliza I too had neighbours trespassing and the only way to stop the trespass was to put up a physical boundary to stop them, something heavy enough that it couldn't easily be moved. I knew that if I had done nothing, they would have just carried on. I agree, that Asprint should put something physica...

Re: Trespassing

Firstly, sympathies. Asprint, can you not go back to your solicitor who handled the original injunction and ask if it still stands? Clearly it is being breached. The trouble with so many of these sort of disputes is that once there is a dispute and bad feeling, the opposing neighbour will be bloody ...

Re: My plants are dying

The police will not do anything without clear CCTV evidence. I know about the rules regarding where you can and can't train your CCTV but a camera could be trained mostly on your land and still pick up the neighbour, assuming they were spraying your plants. I would also be inclined to put in some ki...

Re: another boundary question, physical feature evidence

I had a not dissimilar issue. It appeared that the OS map showed one boundary but an entirely different one on the ground i.e. part of our garden, if strictly split in line with the boundary between two properties i.e. between both windows say, would belong to our neighbour. But I did seek advice an...

Re: Hedges ripped out and cut!

I had something similar where a neighbour reached across into my garden and attempted to snap and uproot some newly planted bushes. I had this on CCTV and the police decided to take no further action aside from a strong warning to him. But if you have no proof it was him, very hard to take this forw...

Re: Any laws/restriction when erecting a driveway fence ?

I am in complete agreement with ElmerFudd here re starting separate threads. One particular issue has different elements and each of these often warrant a thread in a separate category. It can get complicated. My own issue began as wondering if I potentially had a boundary issue (posted in boundary ...

Re: boundary question

Hi Parallel Lines We had a not dissimilar conundrum. The deeds showed the boundary to be - as is usually the case - at the middle point between the two terraced houses. But a long long established garden - and following the line of the garden - did not tie in with that. We had a surveyor look at it ...

Re: Any laws/restriction when erecting a driveway fence ?

My sympathies to you ElmerFudd :( It seems like the injunction idea will be hard to police, however annoying it is. It sounds like the neighbours are trying to goad you and just causing more bad feeling by continuing to encroach on your property. I could advise you to ignore them but I know this is ...

Re: Front garden boundary (fence/hedging)

JesseMarch I had a similar issue. There was a restrictive covenant saying no fences or hedges. I had an issue with a neighbour encroaching and it became apparent that I had to do something. I put up a trellis planter just within the boundary and a row of bushes. This has resolved the issue I had. I ...

Re: Legal height for pergola

If you want instant coverage, one idea is to thread fake ivy or climbers through the trellis. You do get some very realistic looking ones these days. We did that with our trellis and it looks terrific. We have a mixture of yellow roses and ivy. It becomes a nice garden feature.

Re: Screening for privacy

One idea for screening is a trellis planter. In other words, trellis attached to a trough. 2.5 metres is fairly high so it may be that you need a deeper trough but if not attached to a wall say and just a free standing structure then it should not flout any planning regs. This can also be a fairly a...
