Looks fab, all the hard work has paid off, Those planters look great, and the shape of the hedge is very impressive.

Is our hedge destroyed?

Looks like they did a good job of it. How big is you're "green bin" to take that lot away? Did she burn it all? It is not a hedge as such, will never been green all year round. 6 months of the twiggy look and 6 months looking lush.

Neighbour's Garden is Damaging our Wall

Yes you have a right, but not without you're neighbours permission. You can not just send the builders round if he has refused, you will need a court order. But getting a court order could be refused, if he say's that it will stop him enjoying his garden and land.

if companys are giving free things away it's because they want your name and address on database's so they can sell on and make money that way. Free things in return for years of junk mail and spam phone calls.

Keeping Cats off of Garden - Tried and Tested Ideas only please

I've tried them sonic scarer the cats came and put their heads in it. Was not bothered by it at all. I got my own cat, they dont mess in their own garden and won't allow other cats to do so. Get a cat.

Hello Gail, You're surveyor should have picked up on this, if you are to send letter's out it should be to them, as they missed a major flaw. I bet the old owners knew the mess they had made by building upto the boundry. Never a good idea to build to the boundry when you can not clean gutters ect with going onto someone else's land. How would you go on if he put a couple of shed's up. Would you ask him to move his shed's so you can get access? Or worse he builds to the boundry. It would be like "do you mind pulling your extension down so I can paint the side of my house". I would think that the neighbour is within his rights to refuse access via his property. Nobody has the right to go onto someone else's property without the landowners permission. Even the police without a good reason, its trespass. If his garden has been raised that would be illegal, but you would have to prove that it has, and it's not you're garden that has been dug out by the old owners. It could be very expensive to try and get a court order allowing you permission. Hopefully the damp proof specialist coming will have better idea's of how to do the job. I know where I live, some solicitors have a Saturday morning clinic for free advice and a chat. In the hope they eventually get the job. Would be well worth having a look what's in your area, I hope you find a amicable way out of this, even if it takes begging him on bended knees. Good Luck
