When I moved into our property we had laid these beasts all bar 3 have been removed. The 3 that remain are cut like standards... The stem is clear and the top cut yearly into a square shape allowing light into our neighbours garden... My neighbour has asked repeatedly for me to cut theM down but I won't as they do provide privacy as there is only a waist heigh fence between us. I recently suggested to her that as the fence is theirs if they replaced it with a higher fence and removed the rotting caravan from their garden I would cut them Down.... To which she said "why should I put a fence up that would block the light as well ( it's next to her patio) ...
Stacey, can't see the problem. You have arranged ...via topiary....for some light into your neighbour's garden. If this suits you keep things as they are. It sounds like you have considered your neighbour yet ??ou can't win!
Now this is the same woman that asked me to join her petition to cut down a massive oak tree growing next to her house.... The same woman that wants me to cut down the oak tree in my garden ( the bottom part of our garden is in the woods) not one branch overhangs her garden! And the same woman who last weekend cut down 4 trees in the woods not her property cause they were shading her car!!! Oh and they dug up from the old oak tree a magnificent wisteria that must have grown 100 foot up!!! So to protect the oak last year I volunteered with the local council and got a preservation order on it!So any way the moral of my story is that llalandi owners aren't all bad and sometimes it's the people on the other side of the hedge!!!!!!
She wants a tree free world!
