Isn't it actually his responsiblilty to erect a fence
to keep his pets/children out of your garden :?:
Rather than just add to the bottom of your fence?

Or does that only apply to dogs?

These sprays should be banned, too many idiots use them with too little information and too few precautions. :evil: My neighbour sprayed his fence last year along with my new upvc windows, frames, gutters, downpipes, plants, wheelie bins, etc etc...but worst of all my car!! He came round and cleaned...

Our recycling box blew away last year, and the council very kindly supplied us with a new one........ only to have the original one returned soon afterwards, by a neighbour who found it in her garden! As I now had a spare, I filled one of them with soil and put some spuds in, which had began to root...

Aren't some people strange :? I'd find out what kind of music they don't like, and play that with the
window open, but, not so loud that they could complain though! As well as cooking fish with the
window open, another idea is TCP, or Bleach, can have a very offputting odour when you're eating!

My neighbours say there's no need for a number on my wheely bin.....its the one with brown spots all over it!! I'm surprised nothing else was sprayed at the same time though? Sounds like you...and your n...

LOL!!!! You don't know my Mother-in-Law :roll: :wink: She can do " everything " for herself, and, when someone came to assess her, as they do, she would tell them so and make us look very foolish! So, we just go with the flow, and I'm sure there are many others out there with loveable stubborn old b...

Yes, thanks :)...as far as I know, the person you are caring for has to be
getting attendance allowance, before you can claim carers allowance. :?:
My mother-in-law won't claim any allowances at all.......she says
she's not ill ...and she's certainly not old... as she's only 88!!! :roll: :lol:

Fence Sprays

The problem is that these sprayers are too readily accessible to any idiot!!!! :roll: There aren't enough warnings supplied with them, and not enough information on preparing the area to be sprayed, or warning neighbours of the possibility of overspray, so that it can be avoided altogether...or at l...
