Is our hedge destroyed?

Haha thanks everyone, I'm pleased to hear that it should look just as good again next year and as soon as I get a chance I'm going to pull the weeds out! Thanks a lot for your advice garden experts!

Ah thanks Dovefromabove, much better! So it was the thing to do then? I did pull the weeds out when we moved in but since it's been cut in half I've been reluctant to take any more thickness away from it!!

Sorry about the rubbish pics, I was trying not to get too muc of the neighbours house or garden in the picture as I don't want any reason to fall out at all! I like a peaceful existence and don't want any bad feelings being chucked about. However, I also want our hedge back! It shouldn't have been blocking any light as it's a decent distance away from the windows, all she has gained is a jolly good view of our garden and passers by have gained a great view of us sitting on the sofa! 

So if it is the Rosa Rugosa how long will it take to be the same size as the front one again? Does it really need cutting in half every year or would a more moderate trim have done the job? 

Thanks for all of your replies by the way

Yeah I haven't mentioned it, I even went to the tip with the remains! I just hope it grows back.. I couldn't find the little tree to insert a pic so here are the links, might need copy and pasting into a browser to view though?

This is what it was like:


And this is how it is now:




I've no idea what it is, is it ruined do you think? I don't want to fall out with anyone over it so I just hope she doesn't do it again! I'd only the week before hired a hedge cutter and neatened it up too!

Hi everyone, this is my first post, I've joined up as I haven't a clue about gardening and specifically need to find a solution or information. Basically, my girlfriend and I bought our first house in July after a long slog of scrimping and saving. It has nice big front and back gardens and in the front there is a 6' hedge between ours NAND the neighbours garden and it wraps around to the front (between ours and the pavement). It was part of what attracted us to the house as it felt like our own little back garden in the front if you know what I mean? Here's the problem. We came back from shopping about a month after buying the house and the neighbour was just finishing off cutting the whole thing in half!! I couldn't believe what I was seeing to be honest, but not wanting to have any neighbour disputes I didn't say anything. It's entirely our property as well, it's completely on our side of the fence. Anyway, I was wondering if it's going to grow back or if she's killed it, and if it might grow back, how long might it take and is there a anything we can do to speed up the process? It looks horrible now and people walk passed staring right into our living room. I don't know what type of hedge it is I'm afraid, if you need pics or more info just ask! Thanks in advance, Dave
