Thanks alyson. I have to resort to doing that every year. I leave the resulting mass of ivy just lying in his garden, but it doesn't encourage him to do anything about it: his garden is such a mess anyway (he calls it natural; I call it a neglected wilderness).

The fence is your property and its time the neighbour respected that
Unfortunately this neighbour doesn't respect anything. He broke two of my fence panels earlier this year - just kicked them in for no apparent reason. He lives in his own reality where it's okay to trespass in my garden and on my roof; let the stench of his sewage flood into my pantry; repeatedly dislodge wet brickwork as I was building my front wall, and try to break into my house in the middle of the night. And that's just the tip of the iceberg. Did I mention that he's a follower of the nineteenth century "mystic" and "educational pioneer" Rudolf Steiner.
