Re: Neighbour's hedge

I did not advocate the OP using "a good dose of glyphosate" as your erroneous comments state. Playing with words and trying to make others appear wrong in the process is not doing you any favours. Whether the dose was 'good' or 'strong' is a moot point because there is no amount of glyphosate can b...

Re: Neighbour's hedge

illegal? Absolutely - if Morgan Sweet were doing it, there's no doubt about that............this would, in my opinion extend to advising someone to do it! Use of the word 'discretely' tells us all we need to know about the advisor. Unfortunately arborlad and Macadam both seem to have a confused und...

Re: Garden wall on adopted highway

The council came out to survey the area - an enforcement was opened online, we didnt hear anything until April of this year when I checked on the portal and saw that the case had been closed and marked - no breach. Assuming you can still access this, print and save, it'll assist your surveyor.

My husband has already instructed our solicitor to look into this,...............



I think it would be wise to go for the surveyor first, in all likelihood, it's what the solicitor will ask for.

Re: Neighbour appropriated some of my garden

It is for the owner of the fence to remove and re-site it in the correct position.............. The time to take action on any trespass is as soon as you become aware of it - delay is not your friend in these circumstances. If it transpires that there is an entirely innocent explanation for the pla...

Does any of that make sense ?



Taking a snippet of something and trying to make sense of it rarely works - once the context and history are known, then thing start to make more sense.

Re: Neighbour's hedge

You have every right and entitlement to spray weed killer on your property; it is the hedge owners responsibility to look after their hedge so it does not get a good dose of glyphosate whilst spraying your land. In time it will affect the roots and weaken the offending hedge's growth but obviously ...

Re: Neighbour appropriated some of my garden

Constructed on site with posts and rails. It's mostly just a dribble rather than an obvious stream. None of the other neighbour's have moved their fences from the original boundary position as far I know. I haven't done anything yet. Still waiting for sight of the deeds. That increase your assumpti...
