I am the victim of one of these neighbours with a 30 foot Leylandii hedge. Like the above poster, my south facing back yard is in shade most of the year. I am a veggie gardener so this is VERY frustrating. We bought this house in the 70's because of the large south facing back yard. In the winter we no longer get sun in our house. As a person that feels the shorter days as SAD, it is an assault. What I don't understand it why the bylaws default to the hedge staying. I feel that if either party doesn't want it, you should be able to remove it. That way, you would grow something mutually agreeable. Just sayin'.
