Is there anything you would like, Anthony.?

how to tidy up this 'tree'?

Or it could be the slower growing lawsons cypress. Either way, you can trim them to shape so long as you don't cut back into brown wood. If you trim back any lanky shoots now it will stay neat until spring . It will not resprout  from brown wood.

Why is anyone allowed to completely destroy your view??

Losing a sea view will reduce the value of a house. It will also reduce the value of adjacent houses. You could point that out to the neighbours.

Any branches that overhang the boundary onto your side can be cut off unless there is a preservation order.   That doesn't help with the height however.

Leylandii planted as a hedge is a problem at that height. See the council to see if they can enforce lowering it.

Wisteria??

There are free standing wisterias at Kew, and also one with a huge trunk  in The Park, below Nottingham Castle. The trunks usually have the melted candle effect.

 I can't tell from the photo what the trunk looks like.

I had lots of sweet peas this year for the house, but I want some other flowers that I can line out in the veg patch and then cut for the house. I am still cutting dahlias and cosmos.

Busy lIzzie, what  variety of butternut squashes are you growing. ? Last time I tried they were a dismal failure, but now I have a really good sunny spot for them, and a delivery of FYM on the way.
