high hedge that we own

Post by louiseg » Mon Oct 24, 2011 12:27 pm

We have a beach hedge in our garden that is on our boundary. The hedge had grown very tall to about 12ft and we wanted to cut it down a bit so that it is easier to manage. We still want our privacy so cut it back to about 7ft we can not reach far enough over to our neighbours and asked if they wanted to do it or we would go into their garden and do their side but they dont want their side cut.
So we have our side 7ft looking tidy and then their side out of control and this makes the hedge look very silly.
Can we cut the braches from our side and pull them through?
