The other option is to put trellis on top of the fence (if the fence is yours!) which makes it more difficult for t...

As long as the ground is dry you can mow the lawn...this will help you to see if there are any problem areas...I have mown mine once already. However the forecast for this weekend includes snow showers so if the ground is wet its not ideal...best off staying indoors with a good film, a packet of cri...

If you are going to contact Environmental Health perhaps it would help your case if you started recording your neighbours when they are being noisy. Also take pictures of anything that is against you wall as this an easy way to prove that they are doing it.

Hi Will I take it you patio is like ours and mostly in the shade? When we first moved in we did try a patio cleaner that said it prevented moss etc growing back but it didn't work and it certainly didn't stop an oil leak from one of our bikes staining it!
