Hello!

1 Answer

Our neighbours have just moved in and want to cut down our hedge between us. In its place, they want to plant new shrubs and put up a fence. The hedge is technically on our side but they keep hacking away at it on their side. I’m worried it will eventually die – and think this is what they are aiming for. I don’t want to plant a new hedge. The one we have is drought proof and doesn’t cost us any money. If we agreed, he wants us to pay half for the new hedge plus our we would have ongoing water costs to establish the plants and it would take years for it to grow up for privacy. Does anyone have similar experiences? What did you do?

  • First I would be finding out where your boundary line is. If the hedge is all on your property then they can’t touch it.
    I would refuse to pay any money for a new fence that you haven’t agreed on. Start taking photos of what’s there
