Are you saying that the neighbours have built up the level of the land on their side of the fence, and in so doing have damaged your fence?

3-part hedge

We had kerria growing and flowering in the drawing room at the farm - it was a 15/16th century beamed moated farmhouse and the soleplate (bottom beam which rested on the foundations) had rotted because of the damp.  The kerria (and the ground elder) pushed it's way through the rotten wood and flowered at the back of the sofa!

How much sunlight does the garden get?

Laying Turf

Posted: 04/04/2015 at 19:50

Any patching of turf is unlikely to match the existing surroundings in colour and texture.

We had a similar problem after our lawn had been under three builder's skips all summer.  We raked the bare patches over and removed the weeds, lumps and bumps and sprinkled lawn seed over the bare patches and over the surrounding lawn.

Within a few weeks we had fine grass covering the bare patch, and within a few weeks more it was thick enough to mow - just a few more weeks and you could hardly see where the bare patch had been.  Because we'd sprinkled seed over the whole lawn the patch of new grass was blended in.

Weed (?) identification - when they are seedlings

Then you'd best contact the web team at this address .

Of course, as it's the holidays there may not be many people in the office for a few days.  Looking forward to seeing your pics eventually - perhaps it'll be even easier to ID them by then

Perhaps you could let her know somehow that with the hedge at it's current height, no matter how you try, you've been unable to see into her bedroom window.

Which clematis are they Verdun?  I've got room for a few more if you really don't have the room

Isn't life complicated at the moment?  I was listening to the news while doing some noisy washing up and could have sworn they were talking about ISIS - but it seemed very odd and more than usually worrying - until I worked out later that they were talking about ISAS

Will, can you post some photos of your garden - maybe we'll get some clues about what you can do to perk things up a bit
