Thanks Mac yes I know everything is legal what he is doing it’s just annoying but he may of won the battle but not the war I only asked in this forum as I had read in on other sites the shed needs to be a certain distance from the fence, never mind just hope I win the lottery
Thanks

A tall thin tree (Italian Cypress) would go some way to disguising the shed.

I would need a really wide tree to disguise this ugly shed

thats why i suggested a thin planter with bamboo. when i lived in my last house, a tiny terrace, I had to laugh when the council kept giving us more and more bins. i could fit 2 small bins and one chair in my yard, had to keep my bin lids clean, as it was the only place I could put my brew(tea) when enjoying the sun for the one and a half hours it hit my yard. i nearly wept when my neighbours jammed a trampoline into their yard and filled it full of screaming kids, but it did help drown out the banging dance music from the other side ! when i sold the house i only had viewings between 9.30 and 11am because this was the only quietish time.

Then install tall poles and wire or trellis or netting and plant clematis, honeysuckl , pretty small leaved green and white ivy and let them romp up the netting etc to form a screen ...they can be planted in tiny slither of soil and well watered will soon get on with it ...Morrisons earlier in the year have plants at £1.76 cant beat that

liveinpeace thanks for the advice but this shed is about 7ft wide so I would need space for a lot of plants which I haven’t got as this area is the only outside space that I have they are really small houses

Jayjay....ivy and clematis do not take up any room at all ...you already have a fence there simply make it higher with trellis or tall poles and netting and hide the stupid shed with colour and enjoy your space

Your totally negative attitude is not helping
