Well, I tried to watch it tonight.

Turned out there was only 40 minutes of recording :( (damn sky+)

So I don't know how it ended.

Funny how most were having them cut down, not everyone gets that.
Any comments I give here are my own opinions, for legal advise check with a qualified solicitor.

The programme sure confirmed what i have always said about Leylandi

They suck all the water and nutrients from the ground and blight the lives of so many people

and they are darned expensive to cut down to size

I enjoyed the programme, and it confirmed what I've always thought. If leylandii are kept trimmed and to a resonable height they form a very effective hedge. Any hedge could cause a nuisance to neighbours if it's allowed to grow and grow. If I lived next door to the naturist featured I'd want a good thick hedge. :lol:
Keep calm and carry on.

I missed that program, I wonder how many people on there have come to GardenLaw for advice? I hope people weren't killing each other over them. :shock:

I just watched it, poor sods! I really feel sorry for those who get no sun in the garden. I would feel ashamed to put someone’s garden completely in shade. We all get some shade, but to not feel bad when a neighbour is plunged in to complete darkness, it is inhumane.

I thought it was nice to actually see some neighbours talking to each other to try and resolve the problem. If we all spent a lot of time in a garden with no sunlight do you think we'd all be tall and thin like plants that look for the light? :)
Keep calm and carry on.

It was nice to see some neighbours sorting out there hedge issues and getting along, it would be nice if all those situations could be sorted out amicably.

I think if we were all in complete shade we would all grow a large propeller out the top of our heads.
:oops: :lol:
